Litfuse Blog Tour: Song of My Heart by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Buy At Amazon
"Sadie Wagner has always been devoted to her family. So when her stepfather is injured and can't work, she decides to leave home and accept a position as a clerk at the mercantile in Goldtree, Kansas. Goldtree also offers the opportunity to use her God-given singing talent--though the promised opera house is far different from what she imagined. With her family needing every cent she can provide, Sadie will do anything to keep her job.

McKane comes to Goldtree at the request of the town council. The town has been plagued by bootlegging operations, and Thad believes he can find the culprit.

After he earns enough money doing sheriff work, he wants to use it to pay for his training to become a minister.

Thad is immediately attracted to the beautiful singer who performs in Asa Baxter's unusual opera house, but when he hears her practicing bawdy tunes, he begins to wonder if she's far less innocent than she seems. And when Sadie appears to be part of the very crimes he's come to investigate, is there any hope the love blossoming between them will survive?
"

My Review
Song of My Heart was a gem. It's beautiful surface (the cover) enticed me and was a foretelling of the treasure that lay within its depths. Kim immediately immersed me in the characters lives. Sadie's innocence and hard-working spirit drew me to her at once. And Thad was everything one would want in a hero. The twin sisters (Melva and Shelva) contributed their fair amount of humor to the story... and a story won't be complete without a villain, right. Well, Kim included that too. In the character of Asa Baxter.

The pace of the story was a steady and comfortable one. Just enough to keep me interested- and it was completely clean. A necessary plus. I enjoyed the romantic tension throughout the book, certain twists that I was not expecting, and the increased pace at the end of the story. The faith elements that were a vital part in the main characters lives was another huge plus. I would have enjoyed a bit more suspense... and a more wicked villain;-) But, all-in-all, this was an enjoyable and worthwhile read. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. It can be bought at Amazon.
