I choose to read Warm Hearts by Barbara Delinsky because I've loved her work for years. Warm Hearts contains two re-releases of older works.

I had originally read the first story HEAT WAVE several years ago. I enjoyed reading Caroline & Brendon's story again. Granted there are a few things that are missing for this day and age. The one major thing I think you notice is the absence of cell phones.

so glad Barbara Delinsky learned how to write after she wrote these two stories.

Barbara Delinsky is one of my favorites, and these 2 stories do not disappoint.

This book is misleading. It was published in 2012 but the (two) stories were written in the 80's. The problem is that they were 1980's situations, completely outdated. I bet this book would have stroke a cord with 1980's women as they were struggling to find their place in the workforce and were seeking romance romances that weren't bodice rippers, yet still wanted their heroes to just "save" the women.

Somewhere in the book the perfection is too much of that the male protagonist was described. The book is a bit daydreamish. Somehow I enjoyed reading it, especially when someone is in search of such kind of romance to nurture a heart and soul. Enjoyed it just like eating my favorite sweet chewy junior.
A set of 2 stories that are easy summer reads. They hold no great suspense and follow a similar pattern but they would make great poolside/beachside accompaniments. This was my first Delinsky book and while I liked it, I don't know that her work is something I will seek out. That said, if another book of hers falls into my lap as this one did, I will most certainly read it.

Thought I would give Delinsky a try. An OK story, but I didn't really get into it. It took a long time for the hero and heroine to meet, and there was a lot of thinking about each other from afar. Also, all the other characters were quite annoying! Just wanted to day enough already.

I always love Barbara Delinsky books, I like the way she brings you into the story and you really get to know the characters like they were friends or family. This book was good a story line that was intriguing and mysterious somewhat. Also a love story...

This is actually two shorter stories, the first of which I forced myself to finish. The second I won't waste my time on.

Two separate short stories - both were lacking a real story or any depth what so ever. Girl meets boy... they sleep together... the end.

run-of-the-mill romance stories are never my cup of coffee. I'm sure this book will be enjoyable for other people. It just doesnt work for me, that's all!

I didn't finish reading this book, because it's one of those cheesy boring unrealistic romance story that only provides fantasies for women.

Just the kind of romance I was looking for. Enjoyed both heat wave and a special something.

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk ...more
