Rival Hearts – Book Review

Are you ready for the latest book in the delightful Quilts Of Love series from Abingdon Press?

Rival Hearts by Tara Randel is a contemporary romance where a boss pits two co-workers against one another for a coveted promotion.

Molly Henderson is the editor of Quilter’s Heart.

Ben Weaver is the editor of Outdoor Adventures.

In order to win to become editor-in-chief of American Legion – a new magazine that their publishing company is dangling before them as the prize – they must successfully take over one another’s jobs for one month and complete projects that lie outside of their current skill sets.

How will Molly – the talented quilter who lacks in athletic prowess – fare when she must compete in a kayak race?

Will the sportsmanlike Ben be able to tap into his feminine side when he must learn how to navigate both the creative and social intricacies of quilting?

And, how will this cutthroat competition and their collective experiences stretch them and change their perceptions of one another?

If you enjoy light-hearted romance that is easy and fun to read, then Rival Hearts is the perfect summertime story for you!

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
