I picked this book because of the description. I thought it would be a quaint read by the "sweet romance" and good synopsis. However, it was not. The main characters had no depth. Darcy starts out with her integrity in taters. I found her boss had more depth and character than her. Threatening to sew her if she ever had a counseling position again. I felt that this book should relabeled, not a sweet romance. Romance or erotica would be better.

There was so much potential, but it really needs wor

Heart Full of Stars is a sweet warm romance story. A woman flees America because of a scandal. She goes to Scotland for a job. Enter hot guy, adorable daughter, and you know the rest. It's a fast entertaining read but nothing remarkable.

It won’t be easy but with the help of a friend, she’s able to start fresh somewhere new. Just when things are going well…it all comes crashing down. Can the damage be repaired?

Darcy Clarke violated perhaps the most important ethical rule of her profession as a marriage counselor. She had an affair with the husband of a high profile couple she was counseling. Once it became public, she lost her job and home. It was time to start over. Letting her best friend apply for a job for her as a Bed and Breakfast yoga instructor, Darcy is surprised she is hired. This is not just any job. She leaves California and travels to Kinnamuir Castle in Lochdarroch, Scotland. What she fi ...more

I loved this book! It's an intense, very real story where the heartbroken woman escapes across the world to a captivating land, Scotland. Darcy is in the midst of a scandal..caught up in an illicit affair with a famous married man, all she can do is leave after threats on her life. Latching hold of an offer of a yoga instructor job in Scotland, she goes there to see if she can pick up the pieces of her life and hide out in the process. I really love the setting. The author is amazing at describi ...more

Darcy needs to be gone quick fast and in a hurry! After the scandal created and her being a marriage counselor to the rich and famous would not cut it. Finding a job in Scotland sounded like a good choice. Aidan is counting on her help to turn around his bed and breakfast and as these two work together Aidan comes to life but Darcy is holding on to secrets, secrets that can come back and bite her in the but if she doesn't come clean. Will the romance that is building between them hold up when he ...more

Twisted, slow burn romance

I enjoyed how this slow burn romance unfolded over time. I liked that this wasn't insta love/lust kind of story. The characters presented in this book were perfectly shaped and presented. I could easily connect with each of them. It is known that any relationship build on lies won't survive, there is only hope that we get the second chance when we come clean with who we are or what we've done.

Heart Full of Stars is an intense, compelling story of a woman who made a mistake and a man who cannot let go of the past. Even the supporting characters have depth. The Scottish castle BnB is on the verge of bankruptcy. It does not need a yoga instructor. Darcy hopes to find a strategy to save the castle. Come take a journey to Scotland and witness this romance unfold.

This was a wonderfully lovely book. It was filled with romance and passion just as any good romance should be. This one is most definitely a keeper. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book in exchange for a free copy.
I really wanted to give it 3.5, but not enough for a 4, because the first 3rd of the book or so was just drivvel. The characters were shallow, the situations questionable. It wasn't until after that that things really picked up and I sped through to the end of the book to find out what happens. OK, so the ending is very cliched, but it's a Romance novel and what would I know about them, not having read enough of them. But the last half or so of the book makes up for the first part. By half way, ...more

A well written romance that really flows, one part soap opera and two parts Hallmark channel. I loved the main characters, as wellas the supporting cast, and of course the adorable litte girl.

This was a well written read. It pulls you in and makes you feel like you are in Scotland. Darcy and Aiden make a great couple. This is a sweet clean romance. It has a Twist and turn that kept me turning pages. Great read. I received it from booksprout and voluntarily left my review.

Heart full of Stars is a new Romance from Linda Govik. For the sake of Full Disclosure I should say that I do know the author, but on the other hand I am really not a fan of Romance Novels, so I think that any bias should be evened out…

This is a nice story of two lonely hearts meeting and finding happiness together…well eventually, on the last page of the book! It is an amusing Fish out of Water tale as the American Darcy tries to adapt to life in a crumbling Scottish Castle and swaps California

Govic takes readers from beautiful, warm Southern California to the beautiful, but vastly different Scottish Highlands. Govic paints a beautiful backdrop for the story and the characters are well defined. Aiden has a mystery from the past that will not let him move forward with new romance. Darcy has moved from the United States to take a job because her life was in disarray after an affair with a client.

Will they be able to move forward together in love, or will the past prove too difficult to

I really wanted to love this book based on its description, but the characters lacked depth and the story just did not hold my interest.

This book deserves 5 stars! While I was reading it, I thought it was just another romance and then Wham! It wasn’t just a romance anymore. My jaw dropped almost at the end. It was a wonderful book and I plan to read it again! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would, but 5 stars is the highest ranking. It’s a must read!
