Voy a empezar diciendo que no se como este libro pudo haber pasado 5 años durmiendo en mi biblioteca! Porque no le di una oportunidad antes!! OMG!
Son de esos tesoros que llegan a tu vida casi por casualidad, lo compre un verano al azar, we were ment to be together!
Me encanto la complejidad de la historia, como los personajes fueron apareciendo con sus múltiples facetas. Este libro describe en detalle como distintos traumas vividos en la niñez pueden generar personalidades tan conflictivas; y la

I really enjoyed this book. Don't judge me! Romance novels are not normally my thing, but I loved the characters, the suspense, the use of multiple narrators, and the way everything is interwoven. I don't care what anyone says--I love it.

Good mystery but had to watch too hard for quotation marks to see if it was thoughts or speech. Kind of hard to read because of that.

To tell the truth, I bought this book because a retired friend told me he and Stone went to medical school together, and the more he told me, the more curious I became about reading some of her books. I started with this one because the e-version was... cheap. It is also one of her earlier books, so it's probably safe to assume that her writing has improved since then.

Not that it needed much improving. She has a real talent for spinning intricate interwoven tales. She also created memorable char

absolutely brilliant ! I loved Pearl Moon the first book I ever read of Katherine Stone..but oh my how Imagine Love will blow your mind. It is absolutely amazing this author details her books...she knows just when to surprise or when to keep you in the dark, when to tease you & when to share the joy & happiness of these characters. Sarah is my favorite in this one...she's the strong, determined, in control journalist...or so you think. Her story had me crying & her journey to reconci ...more
С тази книга слагам край на новата година.
Винаги съм харесвала стила на писане на авторката.Много различен,единствен и неповторим,тъжен и меланхоличен."Черно сърце" има някои общи черти с друга нейни книга-"Часът на Пепеляшка" но само привидно.
Историята не е еднозначна,по-скоро разказва историята на три различни любовни истории,които накрая се преплитат чрез криминалния елемент.
Имаше много тежки моменти,много болка,тайни и любов.Краят беше много сладък.
Въобще ако си почитател на по-драматичните

Picked this up at a book's about 20 years old. Very sweet romantic suspense involving 3 separate couples that have intertwining lives. I would have enjoyed more heat, but this is a "closed-door" romance. Loved the bayou setting and the history between Claire and Cole.

Some books you're just glad are done. Overly dramatic clap-trap! Jeezlouise! I kept hoping these people would just get over themselves already. Enough navel gazing to knit a sweater from the lint. Not sure how Stone became a New York Times best seller, unless that's just hype-spin.

This was the first Katherine Stone book I read. I found it on my grandma's bookshelf, which is probably why I liked it so much. She had great taste in reading material.

The story was great, it moved quicly and I cheered with the characters at the end of the book.

Although I was a bit unsure when I picked this book in the library, it really was a good story. You managed to get to know the characters and the story didn't move too slow or too fast. The ending was good as well and tied up most of the loose ends. This was a good book.
