    1. FULL REVIEW FOUND AT LITERARY CAFE literarycafe.weebly home aMelissa Jagears took a chance by writing on several sensitive subjects that most Christians don t even want to touch Christian neglect and hypocrisy, prostitution, tithing and helping the poor What a mouthful, and once you read it, a mindful A mind full of questions Do we still neglect the poor and needy Do we shun people for their pasts, even though Christ has already made a clean way for their future Do we give the bare minimum requi [...]


    2. 4.5 solid stars of excellent qualityTHIS BOOK IS AWESOME Y ALL I am so behind on reviews it s ridiculous, and I feel awful because this one was actually a review request, so, until I get all my wits together once again, I just wanted to say that I loved this book It was deep, intriguing and highly interesting, and I strongly recommend it This is not your typical light tea party romance, ooooohh noooooo It s way intricate, and superbly written If author Melissa Jagears isn t already on your rada [...]


    3. I ve been a fan of Melissa Jegears ever since I read the first book in her Unexpected Brides series While A Heart Most Certain tells a different type of story, it s no less poignant, gripping and a deep pleasure to read I was touched by the giving hearts of the characters, aghast at the injustices that they fought and captivated by the tender romance.Lydia King and Nicholas Lowe are engaging characters and utterly compelling They both have valuable things to teach one another, but it takes quite [...]


    4. When the author asked if I d be willing to be an influencer for her new book, I jumped at the chancee I d already loved the novella set in this town, and I really liked Lydia and her fascination for books It was a delightful moment to get this in the mail and realize what sort of enjoyment I was in for I d just gotten it started, though, when a sickness and death in the family brought my intelligent reader brain to a halt There was no way I could create a nice, reasoned review now, this is embar [...]


    5. First of all y all are going to LOVE Lydia Why Well, many reasons But specifically because she s a READER She can t help herself Waiting in Nicholas office for him to return, what does she do Pilfers a book off his desk and starts reading it Can anyone else relate to that or just me When she s struggling to find something in common with a woman she s just met a woman from a different socioeconomic background than her own it only takes discovering this woman s shared love of books for the walls t [...]


    6. This book has a wonderful message I really enjoyed reading it I m going to miss Lydia and Nicholas I really liked how the author told Lydia s story Some parts really stirred my heart It was a good reminder to me I would encourage readers to read this because it s a great entertaining novel More importantly, A Heart Most Certain will remind you not to judge but to reach out and love others, not only in word but in deed.


    7. In Melissa Jagears new series, Teaville Moral Society, readers get a good look at what life was like for prostitutes and their children in the early 1900s The church body didn t welcome them and created an environment of very limited options.Lydia and Nicholas both show character growth in the pages of A Heart Most Certain I especially enjoyed getting to know some of the minor characters such as Sadie and Robbie Most of all I appreciated the author s historical note following the epilogue.This n [...]


    8. I really appreciated the compassion of the main characters in this book Both Lydia and Nicholas have strong ideas of the most effective way to improve society and the circumstances of the poor, and their differences complement each other as they compromise a little and teach each other a lot The problem of prostitution is addressed head on, and many attitudes about it are represented in the various community members I appreciated that Lydia and Nicholas learned from each other s unique way of so [...]


    9. This book is fantastic It is a true historical fiction, and I love the undertones of forgiveness and hearts being changed.What I loved The character of Nicholas is priceless His concern for the down trodden and his love for the unlovely simply make his character shine The fact that he does his good deeds in secret makes him special And Lydia King even though her poor but aristocratic and almost haughty personality is evident in the beginning, the reader cannot help but like her because of her l [...]


    10. A Heart Most Certain is the first of the new Teaville Moral Society series I enjoyed this book It is a little deeper than the others by Melissa Jagears, but it still has those fun moments that made me giggle A wonderful story of redemption.Highly recommended 5 plus stars


    11. I have to say that I wasn t sure what to think of the first chapter of this book I was mistakenly thinking it was a rewrite of a Charles Dicken s novel and set it aside for awhile I am so glad I picked it back up, because after the first chapter, I was hooked This story took me on a journey I did not expect Nicholas Lowe, hard skin flint, widower and the Lydia, the daughter of a drunken gambler and dying mother were not that unusual of characters, but how Ms Jagears portrays them is what is uniq [...]


    12. I ve only read one other book by Melissa Jagears, and while it was really good, it was or less the average Christian historical romance novel Even so, I decided to review A Heart Most Certain and as I got into this book, I was blown away Book One in the TEAVILLE MORAL SOCIETY is a story about Lydia King and Nicholas Lowe It s a tale about a moral society gone wrong, and a rich man who refuses to give to his church for interesting reasons A story of redemption and forgiveness, of true charity it [...]


    13. Well, well, well, I am not exactly sure what I should say about this book I liked part of it, and I didn t like part of it.But First, I will start with the parts that I did like I really liked the fact that Lydia and Nicholas got off on the wrong foot I mean, at first, they both couldn t stand each other Well, at the beginning at least Anyway, Nicholas was pretty cool I liked him I mean, I didn t fall in love with him like I do with some main guy characters, but he still was nice As for Lydia, s [...]


    14. What I LovedNicholas Lowe, oh how I love thee Not because he s rich, heaven forbid, or because he is so handsome, but because of his deep seeded love for the Lord and ministry His genuine desire to help those who were deemed soiled and his ability to see through Christians, spoke to my heart.Although this is a historical romance, much of the behaviors of the Christians then still apply today I applaud Jagears for taking a road less often traveled in CF and not just writing about a typical villai [...]


    15. What is the difference between an upright moral woman who marries simply for financial gain and the prostitute who sells her body for money Melissa Jagear s A heart Most Certain tells the story of one such woman, Lydia King Lydia is almost engaged to Sebastian Little, the mayor s son Once married she will want for nothing, except love Nicholas Lowe is a miserly man who refuses to help fund the Moral Society It is up to Lydia to prove her worth to the Littles by getting a donation from Mr Lowe.Th [...]


    16. Nicholas Lowe is the big business owner in Teaville, who on the outside acts shrewd and harsh to those who ask him for charitable handouts The entire town assume every which way he should be spending his money and naturally each one believes it should be for their own cause Lydia King is the daughter of a terminally ill mother, and a father who has lost himself to gambling and drink Desperate to provide for her mother and herself she hopes to marry Sebastian Little, the Mayor s son She is a memb [...]


    17. My Thoughts As avid romance readers, a lot of us can attest to the fact that it is fairly easy to find a good swoon worthy book to cuddle up with And most of us could find a non fiction book to talk some sense into us But those precious gems that mix swoon worthy romance Kick in the gut Christian truthsose are the ones that are few and far between Guess what Melissa NAILS it Every Single Bit of it I started this book with the hope that it would at least be as good as books I had previously read [...]


    18. A Heart Most Certain was such a deep and moving story The author did an amazing job of filling the book with rich, historic details which made me feel that I had traveled back in time to the fictional town of Teaville, Kansas.This novel was truly a wonderful combination of history, romance, and social commentary While a piece of historical fiction, the behavior of the church members toward women and children whom society had thrown away, was clearly not in tune with the teachings of the Bible Th [...]


    19. First book in series Book is category called Redemptive Christian Fiction Have never heard of this.But really enjoyed On to book 2


    20. Yes, A Heart Most Certain shows Melissa Jagears to be a fresh voice in historical romance even if the title does sound Siri Mitchell Everything about A Heart Most Certain impressed me.The writing was excellent, there was a clear and challenging Christian message, the plot was solid with plenty of twists and turns, and just enough predictability hey, this is romance There are some aspects we want to be predictable And both lead characters were excellent an intelligent heroine who wasn t afraid t [...]


    21. Lydia knows what it is like to be poor and embarrassed by the actions of a family member So she joins the Moral Society of her church When the leader, her future mother in law, tasks her with getting money from the stingiest man in town If she can get the money than she ll be considered worthy and a the type of wife that Sebastian needs for his political career But Nicholas isn t really stingy He just prefers to do his charity work anonymously and under his own terms So he agrees to a wager of s [...]


    22. This book caught me completely by surprise I expected a light romance and an easy read.What it turned out to be was a book to challenge our beliefs and actions.When we preach forgiveness, grace and love do we truly believe it is for everyone Are we truly willing to go out to those in need without judging and insisting even when help might not be first welcomed Have we truly confessed to God our need for His help to love because we are very judgmental people In A Heart Most Certain we follow Lydi [...]


    23. Can I just say this is hands down my favorite of Melissa Jagears books I ve read And I ve read several I ll be honest, probably the thing I loved best about this book was the Pride and Prejudice vibe Wealthy man who has his opinions about the others in the church and a tenacious woman who is on the brink of poverty herself but refuses to back down from her mission.While they both have their flaws, Nicholas and Lydia are likable characters because Jagears isn t afraid to show their humanity to re [...]


    24. A Heart Most CertainLydia is a young lady from a family suffering financially due to her father s gambling and drinking She was raised like a lady, and is quite lovely, so she is acceptable in society and now in a relationship with the mayor s son.Jumping through hoops for her church s moral society her task is to get a donation from the richest man in the community for sewing machines to sew quilts for poor families before winter sets in Not an easy proposition Known as the equivalent of Ebenez [...]


    25. It is not often that I read a historical fiction novel where, not only do I enjoy being entertained, but I find myself to be utterly convicted by what I am reading at the same time Such is the case with A Heart Most Certain , a book where the characters take the expected dance towards affection and love, but in a utterly unique way Lydia and Nicholas are two strong willed characters who are stuck in their view of what life and God has to offer them until they meet each other that is The author d [...]


    26. Lydia King is practical and somewhat naive but she s also determined and courageous and has a tender heart While her practical side persuades her that, in order to not end up on the streets or in the poorhouse, she needs to marry the politician courting her, her tender heart is drawn to the needs of the people in the seedy side of town that Nicholas opens her eyes to I really enjoyed her character and the way that she matured and changed throughout the book.Nicholas is a good man with the heart [...]


    27. This book was so different than the others that this author has written, but still just as good For one thing, it was deeper than her others I ll admit that I didn t find it to be the fluffy read I expected, but that s a good thing I remember meeting Lydia in the novella, Engaging the Competition She was still in school in that novella In this book, Lydia is grown up She has a tender heart, but doesn t really understand being charitable until she meets Nicholas As they go about their missions, L [...]


    28. A Heart Most Certain is a Christian romance set in 1905 in Kansas The historical details were a vital part of the plot The author researched how the church at that time generally dealt with prostitutes Lydia initially shared this opinion because she needed to keep a respectable reputation it s all she has Due to events in his own life, God has opened Nicholas heart to helping ex prostitutes but he does so in secret.Nicholas teaches Lydia about creating relationships with those you re helping and [...]


    29. After reading and loving the prequel novella, Engaging the Competition earlier this year I was eagerly anticipating this new book And I am absolutely delighted to say that I was not disappointed, this is a fabulous book The message touched my heart in so many ways, this is one novel that I won t soon forget I have recently discovered that I tend to really enjoy stories of true love between a rich man and a poor girl, and Lydia and Nicholas story was a beautiful example of loving someone for who [...]


    30. What I Loved EVERYTHING I loved everything about A Heart Most Certain First of all, it s a lovely cover One of my favorites of the year But I guess it s time for me to dig a little deeper in this reviewFrom the very first scene, when Lydia compared Mr Lowe to Scrooge, Melissa stole my heart A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite stories and I thoroughly enjoyed the ongoing connection between the two men.A Heart Most Certain challenges the reader, as it did its characters, to consider how they t [...]
