Will an unplanned detour finally guide Grant home and find love with an honest, funny, and undeniably appealing reporter named Jami? Find out in a heartwarming romance by Carol J. Post, Trust My Heart. Grant McAllister arrives in Murphy, North Carolina, with one aim: to sell his inherited property and leave as quickly as possible. After breaking up with her safe-but-smothering boyfriend, Jami is determined to ace her first big assignment. A story about the McAllister estate is too intriguing to ignore—but as the two draw closer as they share their dreams, misread signals and misunderstandings begin to test their trust.
Trust My Heart is the story of Jami Carlisle, a new college graduate and a “wet-behind-the-ears” journalist, trying to interview Grant McAllister. Grant is a big-city lawyer who has recently inherited a grand estate in Murphy, North Carolina. He’s broken and divorced and has lots of hurts in his past.
The book opens with Jami seeking advice from God to determine whether she should marry Robert. He is a good Christian man who is kind and responsible and the town is basically expecting a wedding announcement at any time. Not trying to post a spoiler, but the story wouldn’t be the same if you didn’t know – she doesn’t marry Robert and they break up.
Neither Jami nor Grant are looking for a relationship, but it seems that Jami’s boss is trying to be a matchmaker. Jami uncovers secrets which may cause Grant to look at his family in a different light.
The two begin to draw closer as they share their dreams, but then there are misunderstandings that unravel and test them.
I felt that Jami’s and Grant’s characters both were well written. Ms. Post makes them “regular people” by showing them as damaged and flawed. The pace of the book was great too – a nice mix of events that keep the story moving while building the slower story behind the scenes. She provides a beautifully described setting of the Smoky Mountains that made me feel like I was there.
I read over half of this book in one sitting too – fast paced but easy to read. That doesn’t mean it’s shallow though – we are faced with issues of forgiveness, love and faith.

From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special-events decorating company, Carol J. Post’s résumé reads as if she hasn’t yet decided what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love of writing. She started as a child composing poetry for family and friends, then graduated to articles for religious and children’s publications. Now she pens fun, fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book award and selected as an RT Top Pick. When Carol isn’t writing, she enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. She also plays the piano and sings with her music-minister husband. Their two grown daughters and their grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all her nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.
