They have both experienced loss and have also both been betrayed by people they loved. The betrayals they have both experienced make the feelings ...more
Healing Hearts is a touching story that illustrates love’s healing power. Little Madi Winters captured my heart on the very first page and never let go! I loved the engaging characters, humans and canines, in this story and was delighted with their second chance at life and love.

Healing Hearts is the first book in the Caring Canines series. This is a very special book series featuring service and therapy dogs. I loved Healing Hearts and look forward to reading more books in the Caring Canines s

"Healing Hearts" was a wonderful Christian romance and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I absolutely fell in love with Abbey, Dominic, and Madison. They were amazing and very relatable characters. It was an amazing story and I'm so glad I read it. Margaret Daley is a very talented author and I just adore her books. Can't wait to read more from her and the Caring Canines series!
