Abigail Pressman would never have guessed that love notes penned on paper hearts by an anonymous couple could restore her belief in love. As a business owner in a quaint town at the base of the Rockies, she's poured everything into dreams of expansion . . . and resisting the matchmaking efforts of the Valentine Volunteers, who gather in her store to continue Loves Park's tradition of stamping mail with the city's romantic postmark.

When Abigail is unwillingly drafted into the Volunteers, she encounters the paper hearts, a distraction that couldn't come at a worse time. A hard-to-read doctor has become Abigail's new landlord, and he's threatening to end her lease to expand his practice.

As she fights a growing attraction to this handsome man crushing her dreams, Abigail is inspired to string the hearts in her store, sparking a citywide infatuation with the artsy trend. But when a new batch of hearts reaches the Volunteers, it appears something tragic has happened to the couple. Will uncovering their story confirm Abigail's doubts about love, or could it rescue her dreams . . . and her heart?

The paper hearts were so incredibly romantic and sweet! I love the way author Courtney Walsh weaves them throughout the story as part of the plot in addition to taking part in telling the story.

I have come to expect this author’s books to be sensitive, insightful and to contain a message that will call the readers into a closer relationship with God, and Paper Hearts did exactly those things. Paper Hearts takes a broken widower through the process of dealing with his grief and guilt and leading a lonely woman on a journey to discover that she had closed her heart to the good things God had in store for her.

The story was full of rich characters. I loved Ursula, the forceful widow who meddles along with the rest of the Valentine Volunteers.

  1. I was so frustrated with that cover. It’s BEAUTIFUL. I love it.

    And the book takes place in winter in Colorado.

    It really colored my take on the book. Not proud of that, but it did. I LOVED the sweet idea of the hearts and how Courtney Walsh used those.
