Chris Zett has written another beautiful and heartwarming tale with her latest novel Heart Failure .
The story begins with Dr. Jess Riley giving birth to her daughter Ella. Not long after this blessed event, Jess suffers a rare and possibly dangerous form of heart failure, and is forced to move in with her mother as she tries to recover. There she meets her mother’s tenant, Lena Walker, and all kinds of sparks fly between them.There is a lot of angst in this story since both characters must deal with heartache from their pasts as well as fear of their present and future. Ms. Zett did an excellent job of creating these characters with their flaws and quirks. It was fun watching the two characters grow individually as people and grow together as a couple. Ms. Zett seems to have a knack for creating memorable characters that she then allows to grow and mature in her books. I noted the same skill in my review of her debut novel Irregular Heartbeat .
Heart Failure is a standalone novel, but the story is written in the same world as her first novel. You do not need to read the first book before this one. However, if you love a good, angsty medical romance, then you should try both of these books.
I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.
