Can a person find their true love at sixteen?
Hardin Ambrose knew he had found his soulmate when he was a high school soccer phenom. McKenna (Mac) Vesley was sunshine to his soul.
The girl he never dreamed existed. The person he didn’t know he needed.
Mac has never forgotten the boy she gave her heart to. The boy who changed her life forever. Hardin was all her dreams come true.
Twelve years ago, under the steamy Illinois night sky, they planned their forever together. But forever never came.
Twelve years later, Hardin still searches for his Mac—the girl who slipped away. Twelve years later he has the chance to grasp forever,
for hearts don’t lie. But after all this time, does Mac want the same?

“You’re a day early,” she returned icily without facing him, remaining slouched in the chair, wishing she could disappear completely.
“No. I’m twelve years late,” he said softly.
Doesn’t that just melt your heart? If so, then prepare to melt even more as author Sutton Bishop tells her story about second chance love between two people who planned forever as teenagers only to be torn apart by time and circumstances. As Hearts Don’t Lie opens, McKenna Vesley has moved on with her life because she has a son and a thriving business for which she’s responsible. Hardin Ambrose hasn’t moved on, however. Despite achieving his dream of fame and fortune as a professional soccer player, he has never given up searching for the girl who mysteriously disappeared from his life 12 years earlier leaving a hole which he can’t quite fill. As fate would have it, his bulldog of a private detective, who also hasn’t given up, locates Mac – now Kenna Eliot – running a successful tour guide business in the mountain town of Piñon Ridge, Colorado. From that point forward, readers will have a front-row seat as Hardin plays to win the biggest challenge of his life – to convince Mac that her future is with him.
Through the effective use of flashbacks to their high school years, the author tells us Mac and Hardin’s backstory from their first meeting to the life-changing night that sets them on different paths. Your heart will break for these two young people whose only mistake is thinking the road to forever is always paved with love.
If you are looking for a sweet romance, this is your book. If you are looking for characters who engage you from the opening paragraphs, you’ll find them in Hearts Don’t Lie. If you like a bit of rockiness to the road traveled as you move toward the HEA, look no further. The author has created a beautiful setting populated with people you will like with a few exceptions. I see so many possibilities for developing this series and I hope you’ll agree with me that a book starring Hardin’s friend Arlo and Mac’s friend Emory would make a great sequel.
