Overview

From the bestselling author of They Did It with Love, a chance meeting ignites romance and results in murder

Nora and Timothy have lives that are worlds apart. Nora lives in a small Kansas town, living paycheck to paycheck, working in a coffee shop. Timothy lives in Manhattan, responsible to no one and nothing except managing his family’s millions. When these two meet, it seems like the beginning of a fairy tale. Except Nora is not your typical damsel in distress, Timothy does not quite fit the role of a gallant prince, and fairy tales don’t include a dead body.

As Nora and Timothy take turns telling their sides of the story, the reader is caught in the net of their love, and the chilling murder that results. With big questions of love, fidelity, filial responsibility and the role of fate, Through the Heart is a page-turning love story with a jaw dropping twist readers won’t soon forget.

Praise

“Morgenroth’s full bodied characterizations, even of minor figures, plus the powerful forward motion of her narrative make this unusual mystery absolutely compelling. Quite possibly a breakthrough by the author They Did It with Love.”
-Booklist

“With character studies, a deep love story, challenging yet wildly differing filial duties, and a murder mystery, the only disappointment is that this beautifully gripping novel ends. Highly recommended.”
-Library Journal

“Morgenroth’s devilishly sly approach to this story is uniquely unnerving for what it doesn’t make obvious, providing a great deal of unexpected suspense without a single drop of blood falling for the most part of the read…An excellent character study, an astounding mystery; this read reinforces the idea that literate fiction and mystery can coexist in one book.”
-New Mystery Reader

“If you like a sexy mystery, Morgenroth keeps the finger of suspicion rotating faster than a game of Spin the Bottle.” –Marie Claire

“Morgenroth’s greatest accomplishment is the ease with which she describes a certain kind of ennui and aimlessness-and the kind of fatal betrayals that can lurk beneath all that suburban gloss.” –The Washington Post

“The character development and local color are so strong that this would be a hit even without the dazzling surprise ending.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
