Waiting Hearts by Beth Ann Stifflemire
The story is about Kayla Parker, 26 year old 2nd grade teacher. Because of a heart condition, she tends to avoid the night scene and prefers to lead a quiet school teacher life style. Her heart condition, having been apparently genetic as her father had died of it, causes her to have regular doctor's appointments, and medical regimens to abide by.
One evening she accidentally bumps into musician, Gabe Sanderson. As the days go on, the run into each other as if by fate. As they come to know each other, Gabe appears to accept all about Kayla, including her dog, Deke and especially her health concerns.
There are several twists and turns in the story. It's happy. It's sad. It's all the emotions that are found in love stories. I enjoyed this story very much and am happy to have had the chance to become acquainted with this author's writing style.
