This is the first book that I have read from this author and she blew me away. I absolutely love contemporary romance but this story exceeded all my expectations.

Michael’s Heart was a great 5 star read.

Colbie has a love of music, so much so that it affects her deeply and is a passion of hers. She is one of three that has qualified to win a contest that will give her money to fund a charity that she has created. After a bad accident Colbie ends up in surgery, while out she meets “the one” but he’s on the other side. She realizes that Michael is her soul mate and commits her heart to him.

It’s not what you look at, Love. It’s what you see.

A few confessions:

1. Any book that comes with an original soundtrack has my heart (I have no talent in that area)
2. I developed a crush on the protagonist in paragraph 2 "...I'm moody; however, I chose years ago to redeem that term in a more positive light."
3. There are situations that happen in this book that are told in such a loving and non-judgmental way... (This surprised me because the story telling leans more towards a more conservative view)
4. Unconditional friends

Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington a moving five-star read. This book was so much more developed than I realised and it’s so beautifully written and inspirational that being said I had such a hard time rating this book, it’s such a captivating story for the most part but there was just one or two small parts that just simply dragged a little and made me question the story. Colbie as a character was amazing, she had a depth to her that made you want to know more about her. This story is so ...more

Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington is an emotional contemporary romance read. The author uses music perfectly to tell Colbie’s traumatic yet hopeful story and share her life with us. I really liked this read and have already recommended it to a friend!

The story Michael's Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington is a contemporary romance book. This is a beautiful story that is inspirational and caused tears to come to my eyes more than once while I was reading. In just the first couple of chapters, I was hooked.

Michael's Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington was an epic emotional rollercoaster has had me hooked from the first gut-wrenching chapter.

This book is just as sweet and cute as it is, rip your heart out and stamp on it. Tears, there were tears people. It's not very often that a book will bring me to tears.

Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington is a phenomenally good story. It is such a beautiful, emotional, and moving story that left me a blubbering wreck.

Michaels Heart
By Lori Thomas Harrington

First, it’s not very often when I read a book I wish it could be rated more than 5 stars. This book is one that deserves to be rated more than the 5 stars. So, don’t even open this book until you are all nice and comfy with a cuppa. I would also suggest that you grab some tissues as in some places in the book if you are like me you are going to need them. I can’t say enough how much I loved reading this book, so, thank you Lori for an awesome read. The char

I loved this story. Michael’s Heart shows what kind of heart the author, Harrington, has.

“…no matter how full of love a person’s heart was, there was always room for more.” This is how I feel after reading this story. A much fuller heart!

The characters are fairly well developed. We are given just enough of their feelings, their pasts, their concerns and opinions to see how important Colbie and Michael’s messages really are.

“It’s the ordinary that makes life worth living.”

Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington is a romance novel with a focus on music and the afterlife. Musician Colbie is nearly killed in a car crash and has a second brush with death on the operating table. When her heart stops, she encounters Michael who may just be the soul mate she’s been searching for.
The narrative jumps around in time, giving us flashbacks that fill in the background as the story unfolds. There’s a fair bit of mystery that unravels over the course of the story. It keeps yo

Michael’s Heart is a love story that explores the nature of love and dreams as seen through the gift of music in an ordinary life, where “every note is a symphony.” Inspiration comes from a deep place in the heart that may be difficult to explain but nevertheless is real and powerful. After all, it is argued, “it’s not what you look at that matters, but what you see.”

Facing near tragedy, the heroine, Colbie, encounters her soulmate, Michael, a love that she has felt for her entire life. As the p

Michael's Heart is a beautiful story that is so original and different than what I usually get lost in. It was a heartwarming story. It was a tale of anything is possible if you just open your heart and mind. There was so much that appealed to me about Colbie. She had her ups and downs. She had a gift and was finally able to to something with it. But then she gets a taste of heaven, and it is at this stage that for me, the author really turns up the quality content and delivers a unique twist to ...more

This is the first book I've read by Lori Thomas Harrington, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I did initially struggle to get into the story, but I gave it a chance and I'm glad that I did. I was slowly pulled in, and become involved in what was happening to Colbie and all the other characters introduced to us by the author. Michael's Heart is an emotional roller-coaster read that leaves you thinking. For me, it made me wonder what I would've done in Colbie's situation, and also m
