This Old Heart
Precious Gems #157 9/98
Tom Lewis is absolutely no Bob Villa, he isn't even Tim "The Toolman" Taylor. While he's a great cop, he's a flop at the renovating business. Lucky for him BJ, Bobbi Jo, Henley knows her way around tools. And even luckier yet, she's willing to help him with his little "fix-me-upper."
Bobbi Henley knows more about the scent of polyurethane than she does about perfume. She's not looking for a relationship, but then, neither is he. Can Bobbi keep Tom from killing himself while they work, and though it's even a more difficult task, can she keep from breaking her own heart when the job is over?
Holly "… has written a spellbinding story of the love that can grow in the most unexpected places, between the most unlikely lovers." ~Karen Steele, WCRG on AOL Review Board
"Holly said in her interview, "Being in love is being vulnerable and allowing yourself that vulnerability takes a great deal of strength and faith." Truer words were never spoken. [Jacobs’] THIS OLD HEART, works so effectively because she has tapped into two people's specific human needs. She allows her characters to discover that the right relationship solves more problems than it creates."- B. Lynn Goodwin, Interviewer for HavenList
