Book Review-A Wandering Heart by Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer

All the stars come out in Cape Light...

New York Times bestselling authors Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer continue their Angel Island series with a sparkling new tale set in Cape Light. Celebrity has landed on Angel Island, but it's new love that steals the show.

Welcome to Angel Island. . . .Its captivating spirit can be felt from the shores of its windswept beaches to the heights of its spectacular Angel Wings Cliffs. The island is said to harbor angels who help guide the lost, delivering them from despair and darkness into the golden light of love and faith.

A movie crew arrives to shoot a film in Cape Light and Angel Island provides a perfect backdrop. Offering good food and a place to rest, Liza's Inn welcomes the cast and crew, including the famous actress Charlotte Miller. Charlotte is surprisingly down to earth and is totally charmed by the island, especially the Inn, where she chooses to stay instead of more lavish accommodations. But one day, along the water's edge, Charlotte is swept into the sea, only to have her life saved by local fisherman, Colin Doyle. Their attraction is instant and undeniable-even though they come from completely different worlds.

As Charlotte spends more time on the island, the relationship seems meant to be. They keep meeting up, by accident at first, then on purpose. But Colin believes he has little to offer this celebrated beauty. He doesn't realize that Charlotte would give up her glamorous life, for him and Angel Island, if only she knew his true feelings. For he alone knows her secret and accepts her completely. It seems only a miracle could bring them together. Then again, with faith and love on their side, Angel Island is just the sort of place where miracles can happen...

Thomas Kinkade is America’s most collected living artist, a painter-communicator whose tranquil, light infused paintings bring hope and joy to millions each year. Each painting Thomas Kinkade creates is a quiet messenger in the home, affirming the basic values of family and home, faith in God, and the luminous beauty of nature.
Kinkade is a devout Christian and credits the Lord for both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings. His goal as an artist is to touch people of all faiths, to bring peace and joy into their lives through the images he creates. The letters he receives every day testify to the fact that he is achieving this goal. Thomas Kinkade passed away recently and  I'm very saddened by this

Anne Canadeo lives and knits in Northport, New York. She is the author of the Black Sheep knitting mystery series, and she has also authored the popular Thomas Kinkade series writing as Katherine Spencer.
Katherine Spencer was a fiction editor before turning to a full-time career as a writer. The author of over twenty books for both children and adults, she lives with her husband and daughter in a small village on the Long Island Sound, very much like Cape Light

  A Wandering Heart is such a tender, compassionate story. Full  of love, romance, heart ache and hope that it is one of my favorite books. Writing this review is sweet and hard for me at the same time. I just love this style of writing, but am saddened that Thomas Kinkade won’t be writing anymore since he is now gone from us, but I’m hoping Katherine Spencer will continue to write more in this series, because I’ve come to love the characters and places so much.
When I read a book and wish I could live in that place it is hard when the book ends.
  Charlotte is a famous movie star and her and her cast come to Angel Island to film some of her newest movie. She falls into the sea and fisherman Colin rescues her. Their love story is so tender, but will it last, because their lives are so different. Will love reign in the end or is this just a summer romance?
 We hear about the wonderful Inn on Angel Island with Liza, Claire and Daniel and the neighbors that run the goat farm. How the neighbors - Audrey and Rob want to start a family so badly, but are having all kinds of trouble.
  This book A Wandering Heart turned out great and I will be satisfied if Katherine Spencer doesn’t write anymore to the series, but would love if she did.
 A Wandering Heart is such a fantastic book and one I highly recommend. You will love it as I did.
