Review: Heart on a Shoestring by Marilyn Grey

Heart on a Shoestring
by Marilyn Grey

Pages: 158
Format: ARC
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Rebelling against a life of black and white, Miranda Ryan paints the world in a technicolor fever. She spends her free time on park benches, analyzing people from the outside in and creating whimsical stories about their lives. Unbridled and full of life, her ever-changing heart is a revolving door no man can figure out. And she likes it that way. But when Derek Rhodes enters her life, he stubbornly challenges her every move. As she unsuccessfully avoids this opinionated prankster her colors fade to gray and she is forced into a choice . . . to lose the self she knows or the self she has never been.

Derek Rhodes wears the same shade of brown every day and avoids eye contact with strangers, until Miranda walks into his life and splashes his world with streaks of colors he swore he’d never touch. Drawn to her imaginative personality, he finds himself questioning his own cynical nature and flat-lined ideals, only to fall in love and realize the only woman he’s ever let into his heart has no plans of letting a man into hers. Follow them both as they poke and prod and test each others limits on a journey of discovery.

Kritters Thoughts:  The fourth book in the series and maybe my least favorite, but I won't abandon the series since each book is based on different characters.  

For me, I didn't enjoy this book because I didn't enjoy the characters that it was based on and I was missing the updates from the other characters in the group.  The book centered around two very very quirky characters Miranda and Derek and both have some huge issues that they are keeping secret and still haven't overcome.  Through encouragement by each other they are able to help the other through their issues and may even fall in love.

I may be a little too square to enjoy their quirkiness and their very quick love story.  I missed them interacting with characters from previous books, but I am not willing to give up on this series just yet. 

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
