For interior designer Lisa Reno things go from bad to worse when her contractor-brother falls off a ladder and breaks his leg. Now she has to deal with the past coming back to haunt her, an old house with a corpse in the creepy cellar, and her best friend trying her best to fix her up with any man that moves.
Nick Woodward is willing to do his old college roommate a favor – especially since it involves renovating his own inheritance. The last thing he wants is to get involved with anyone. When he lost his wife and unborn child so suddenly, he had made the decision to keep God and everyone else at arm’s length.
So far, so good.
Ah, the difference a trip to a dingy basement makes.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

I’ve read a few short stories by Regina Rudd Merrick in several of the Mosaic Collections and was interested to read a full-length book of hers. Romance with a hint of mystery? Sounds great!

Nick and Lisa were wonderfully human, with normal insecurities and fears. Their plans got derailed when they discovered a body in a secret basement tunnel under the house they were going to restore. Secrets began to be revealed as the investigation continued.

Nick had turned from the Lord when his wife and unborn child were killed in a car crash and struggled with believing that God cared for him. Lisa, despite having a strong faith, struggled with a sense of needing to please people. Their spiritual journeys were well written and pointed clearly to Jesus.

Heart Restoration, while containing a mystery, is more about the faith journey Nick and Lisa travel and the romance that awaits them at the end of the road. It is a sweet and inspirational story.
