One Kind Heart (One Kind Deed Series Book 1) by Christine DePetrillo was a great 5 star read.
I was pulled right in and finished it before I knew it.

Dakotah is an adventurer and was so happy that his sister’s agreed to take over the family business so he could pursue his dream. While helping his dad at the school opening he meets the new fourth grade teacher. There is something about her that gets his attention.

Leah has moved to town from New York to teac

One Kind Heart is the first of the One Kind Deed series and the first book from this author that I have read. I loved reading and following Luke and Leah's very entertaining story, as Luke does what he can to break through Leah's walls. This start of the series has me hooked and I look forward to reading more from this author. ~Dawn

Wowzers!! Before today I have never heard of or read a book by Christine DePetrillo and let me say she has me HOOKED!!

One Kind Heart is just about that, one kind heart, and that kind heart belongs to Dakota. Swoon. Major freaking swoon. Dakota has got to be one of the best book boyfriends I have ever read hands down.

Leah moved to Maplehaven to escape New York and begin a fresh start. The last thing she was looking for o

This book sort of took me by surprise. It was very intense, and I did not want to stop reading. Leah's heart had been broken in the worst way, but I loved how she decided to move on with her life. She had such an inner strength that she did not know she had. Dakota was sexy and sweet and determined once he set his eyes on Leah. He could be romantic, funny, and serious. They made a great couple through the adventures, her students, and the rough moments. I highly recommend this story, and I look ...more

Dakota Brenton is a gorgeous, talented, kindhearted man that you cannot get enough of. His passion for exploration, his family, his dog, Maplehaven and Leah pulls you into the story, compelling you to understand his feelings and experience them with him. Just don’t judge him by his ruggedness and all things outdoors, there is more to Dakota that might surprise you and just like Leah, you can’t say no to this man!!!
Leah Greenstead is a quirky, talented, and complex woman who has been through som

One Kind Deed

Can one kind feed change your life? It does if you are Dakota Brenton. His family's donation of lumber to rebuild the local elementary school means he meets Leah Greenstead, the beautiful fourth grade teacher. He knows from their first meeting that Leah is someone special. Leah, however, isn't interested in finding love, especially with an adventurous, good looking guy like Dakota.

This story is fantastic! I loved Dakota and Leah's funny, flirtatious conversations as much as their s

A very sweet romance. A lot like Marie Force's Gansett Island or Butler, VT series in its tone, storyline, small town friends, low angst yet interesting.

One Kind Heart is book one in One Kind Deeds series. I absolutely enjoyed this story. It is a great romantic escape. I loved Dakota and his character is sexy and romantic. I loved how he went to so much trouble to get Leah's attention. Though Leah had a big secret and was dealing with a past not sure she could love again. I loved all of the romantic adventures and Ginger the dog and Luke the ten-year-old really took the story though. There is a lot of sexual tension and build-up about Leah's sto ...more

One Kind Heart was a sweet read set in an awesome small town that I want to move to, and I'm not a small town kind of girl. It did take me a bit to get fully immersed into the story, but once I did I couldn't put it down. Dakota is a thrill seeker so he leads other thrill seekers on adventures, and he loves his life the way it is. Leah is the new 4th grade teacher who is starting over in Maplehaven, Vermont after a tragedy. She's determined to keep her head down & not get close to anyone, but sh ...more

CAN YOU SAY DRAMATIC???

I enjoyed the story...in the beginning! I understand the trauma that comes along with a tragedy, especially one where you lose your parents , sister and fiance all at the same time. But I feel like the lead female character was a bit overdramatic! He fell on the floor and broke his arm AND she imagined him behind the wheel of a car dead??? Come on now...that was a bit much! And then she breaks up with him because of her own imagination??? Smh... just plain stupid! The othe

This was ok. Started out well but I did feel the ending was a bit limp. I don’t feel there was much development of character tbh. I get the trauma behind Leah but she freaks so badly about Dakota falling off a ladder that she dumps him and figures he may as well be dead despite just breaking an arm. And what happened to Fey the kitten? We saw her get adopted, gets two further mentions and then is largely forgotten about as if she didn’t exist. Not bothering with the series after Leah being so ov ...more

Sweet and heart-warming!

I want to live in this town! The characters were so real! If you are looking for a book to make you feel good and remember that love is the answer, well, here you go! This book has it all, scenery, characters, friendships, and of course the romance! What else could you want, except maybe your own adventure!

Christine Depetrillo is a new author to me, and I am hooked!

One Kind Heart is the perfect romance story. It took me a little bit to get into it, but once I was hooked I was hooked.

If you are looking for story that is a slow burn, but so worth the slow burn look no further.

I will absolutely be reading the rest of this series.

One Kind Heart

My first Christine DePetrillo story. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, it had me laughing at the banter between the characters, shedding a tear during the drama and at the end, I wasn't ready for it to finish. I'm looking forward to reading more from Christine.

Christine DePetrillo can often be found hugging trees, conversing with dragonflies, and walking barefoot through sun-warmed soil. She finds joy in listening to the wind, bathing in moonlight, and breathing in the fragrances of things that bloom. If she had her way, the sky would be the only roof over her head.

Her love of nature seeps into every story she tells. As does her obsession with bearded m
