The Mafia comes to Miracle, Wisconsin…
Mo Vincent, the owner of Mo’s Place, is in agony because his soon-to-be divorced sous chef is dating – but not him. He has his reasons for not asking her out. He did the right thing back in New Jersey, and it cost him his son, his wife, his restaurant. Now he’s found a home in Miracle. The village has accepted him, and his new restaurant is doing well. He should be content with what he has…but his heart wants more.
Chef Rosa Fabrini’s divorce is one signature away when her cheating husband returns home and expects her to forgive him. Her lawyer is AWOL, and her youngest son is demanding she take his father back. Desperate to escape the turmoil, she asks Mo to let her move into the empty apartment above the restaurant…right next to his place.
Mo can’t say no. His mind knows she’s forbidden fruit, but his heart dares to hope. Until his past shows up, and he finds out sometimes it takes a village…
So Many Reads Review:
This was such a good story. The characters in Miracle are pretty down to earth. Mo and Rosa in this story, Mo’s Heart, don’t experience the head over heels, knock yourself out type love that make you wonder how realistic it is. The love here is strong and romantic, but a little more realistic. It grows and becomes this amazing thing. Mo is the owner of a restaurant in which Rosa works. Their past circumstances has pushed them together and the chemistry the two have show just how much we need to believe in fate.
Edie does a wonderful job developing Mo and Rosa, along with the other characters in the book. I love how sweet Mo is and the spunky Rosa. Because they are in their late 30’s/early 40’s they have a maturity about them, they show respect to one another and the story almost feels like a true story. The ups and downs they go through together are real, almost like reality TV, yet very well done (not in an overly dramatic, trashy way).
What kept me reading the book? I had to find out how Mo was going to escape the Mafia and how Rosa was going to settle things with her soon-to-be ex husband. I had to find out how the town was going to rally around and protect Mo. I had to find out what was going to happen with Mo and Rosa. They love each other so much and the odds that they could be together are not great because of the obstacles in their way. That is what kept me reading the book.
I always enjoy reading about characters from past books and Katie from Miracle Pie made an appearance in this book as did her specifically-named pies. I love Edie’s humor in her books. She had me cracking up several times at the one liners her characters would spout off. The next minute she would have me tearing up because of an argument between a mother and son that wasn’t going the way we expected or a happy reunion between family members. She likes to put the reader through the same emotions her characters feel.
Edie knows how to write awesome, heartfelt, engaging romance stories that just make you feel good when you are done reading them. They bring hope and motivation to people that might experience something similar in their lives. If you are looking for a heartwarming, family oriented, small town romance, I highly recommend you try Mo’s Heart!
