Hearts Aligning is a paranormal romance and the second book in the Saint’s Grove series. The main character, Ellie, was raised by her grandfather. When he passed, he left her his bar and his fortune with the stipulation that she must keep and run the bar herself for five years. It is now the end of that period and she is preparing to sell the bar and move away from Saint’s Grove. But then one night during a planetary alignment, rifts pop up all over town and strange creatures from other worlds begin to pour out of them. All of a sudden, she can see auras and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Now that she finds out that werewolves, witches, vampires and other supposedly mythical creatures are all too real, she must brave the wilds in search of the past that has been kept from her all of her life. But when all is said and done, can she and her friends weather the storm that has descended upon their quiet little town?
I would first like to state that I received an ARC from one of the authors participating in the series for review. This was quite the emotional roller-coaster ride. It was full of action, love, magic, and heartbreak. For the length, it was quite a good story. The characters were likeable, the storyline superb, and the pace steady throughout. I just wish there were a little more background story to the two main protagonists. But all in all, I really enjoyed it. This was another book that I tore through in record time as I didn’t want to put it down. If you like a good paranormal romance, this one is definitely for you!
