Cross My Heart – Carly Phillips


Cross My Heart by Carly Phillips
Genre: Chick Lit
Form: Audio Book

Lacey Kincaid is a classic New York success story. As the owner of Odd Jobs, she’s gone from rags to riches…sort of. Because Lacey’s harboring a secret – she was born Lillian Dumont, and spent her childhood with a silver spoon in her mouth, until the deaths of her wealthy parents and the evil schemes of an abusive uncle forced her to take drastic measures. She’d never planned to return to her former life or her abandoned identity – but when her childhood sweetheart, Ty, resurfaces and urges her to claim her rightful inheritance, she decides that maybe being the Dumont heiress wouldn’t be so bad. Lacey’s uncle doesn’t see it that way, though – and he’s willing to do anything to stop her.

Now, it’s up to Ty to protect Lacey before that silver spoon becomes a silver bullet. But if they live through this, the future’s looking bright for this downtown guy and his brand-new uptown girl!

Another fun book that kept me company while I worked. Cross My Heart was a predictable book, but entertaining enough to fulfill it’s purpose. I do enjoy a good book that isn’t to heavy. I like heavy books too – don’t get me wrong, but this is one of those “feel good” books that doesn’t keep you up all night with details and drama. I like that. I’ve obviously been reading and listening to a love of that lately.

I think my favorite part was Lacey’s “I love you” – when she was like..”what, you didn’t know??” But really, I have to give the narrator, Marie Caliendo, props. She did an awesome job in my opinion. The voices were nice and mellow, she adapted the male characters to have a nice, not too deep, husky voices. It really made this audio book worth hearing!
