    Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. This book wasn't terrible, but it was pretty boring and just not really want I expected it to be. Such a bummer because when I first put this on my TBR I assumed it was going to be the Sweet Home Alabama book of my dreams but that was so not the case, lol. Onto th...

    ????? / 5 rounded up I think that Heart Land by Kimberly Stuart is quite possibly one of the sweetest books I have ever read and I adored it! Heart Land is about Grace, a twentysomething from Iowa who has been working at a premier fashion house named Milano in NYC for...

    3.5 stars Heart Land is a sweet romance, a story of love given a second chance, the cost of following your dreams, and a touch of the glamour of high fashion. Grace Kleren has fought hard to follow her dreams of becoming a top fashion designer. After years of brutal, hard work o...

    This novel is the proof that simple is underrated. And I say this full of love, there was something about the story that reminded me of a favorite sweater - comfortable, cozy, enjoyable, the best place to be. If I don't sound convincing enough, let me say this, "Heart Land" reminds me...

    I read Heart Land in a single sitting. I had a five hour train journey ahead of me between two cities, and I tuned out to the person listening to music way too loudly next to me, and fell into the world where there is a small town girl who has big city dreams ? but a love interest wh...

    I love a small-town romance, and second-chance romances are also at the top of my favorite reads list (yeah, it?s a long list but there are certain tropes I don?t pass up). Kimberly Stuart delivers both of the above (and more) in her latest book. When Grace?s big plans for her...

    There was something sweet and warming about this small-town romance. A romance that takes you back to that first time you fell in love. Learning to see the past with the future and seeing your future in your present. Grace and Tucker was sweet and refreshing at the same time. Heat Land...

    Returning home to Iowa is not exactly what Grace Kleran had in mind. She never looked back after high school, only looking forward as she studied and realized her dream of living in New York City. The fashion industry is all Grace has ever wanted to be a part of and after six years of ...

    3.5 stars, review originally from my blog Katy's Library Blog Thank you so much Atria Books for sending my a copy of Heart Land in exchange for an honest review! I enjoyed this one so much it was a quick, easy, light hearted read perfect for summer! Full of southern charm and big NY...

    I made it close to the end of this book. Pretty pleasant reading for me most of the way, with some moments I found humorous. While I didn't dislike the story, though, it did lag at times. There wasn't much about the storyline or most of the characters that "popped" for me, that made...

    Oh my goodness, I loved this book so much! Knowing nothing about this author or this book, I honestly picked this read based on the cover alone. Grace, the main character in this book, grabs my heart and does not let go until the very end. This is her story of finding herself, finding ...

    Heart Land's description was accurate and misleading all at the same time. I won't go into details on what was misleading because that will probably be too much information/spoilers. But I will say that I hate when this happens--when I read a book and realize the description wasn't ent...

    Heart Land was a sweet and romantic story about second chances in life and in love. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I connected with the main character and I quickly came to love her personality as well as her grandmother's. The characters were well developed and the story was e...

    This book absolutely rocked. This is a simple novel and it is entirely underrated. I can say that it is full of love, there is this sense of familiarity with the story, it's like an old friend. I also can say that this book reminds me of the heartland and my home. It feels like home....

    Heart Land is a cute story that while has its predictable moments, there are good life lessons you can take from it. One thing I liked the most is how it emphasized that home is truly where the heart is, no matter where you go or how much you may feel like that place isn't for you and ...

    Heart Land is a delightful and sweet story of love and second chances-both of love and careers. Grace Kleren left her hometown in Iowa after high school for New York City and a career in the fashion world. After devoting her life and time in a fashion design company for several years, ...

    After a bit of a slow start, this book picked up some energy. This was a little of a roller coaster ride of emotional connection with Grace, the leading lady. There was times when I was routing so hard for her, to have me pull all sense of loyalty later on. Irritating you might say? No...

    I loved this story so much! It truly made my heart smile. I loved going through all the emotions with each character and I felt so connected to almost all of them. The heartbreak, losing faith, and love and the courage of finding it again. This story had so many special moments. I was ...

    Such a good book! Loved the story, though I felt it was a bit slow to start; it got really good! The end had me in tears, Happy tears ? Such a good book! Loved the story, though I felt it was a bit slow to start; it got really good! The end had me in tears, Happy tears ?? ...

    What a sweet book. Think Sweet Home Alabama with a Christian twist. It made me smile, laugh, dream, and cry. And although I?m reading this on a snowy Saturday it is a perfect summer read. ...

    A standalone novel of reconnection and rediscovering what's truly important in your life. This ARC was sent to me by NetGalley and Howard Books and Simon & Schuster for an honest review. My Take Oh, this was so, so lovely. I was riveted, especially with that opening hook, lo...

    Stuart beautifully weaves characters of substance into a plot that is light yet rich at the same time. Grace, a small town Iowa girl flies from home to spread her wings as a NYC fashionista, only to return home 10 years later. It is there, that she grows and matures into who she is mea...

    What an endearing story of learning where your heart really resides. Grace has spent ten years in New York City trying to make it as a fashion designer, only to find herself fired, in debt, and a one-way ticket home to Iowa. While trying to raise enough money to pay off her debt, bu...

    Sitting in my backyard after finishing Heart Land by Kimberly Stuart is a double dose of pure pleasure. The afternoon sun highlights just how my heart feels full of light and goodness as I shared the adventure of Grace Kleren's, the novel's creative protagonist, and the myriad people i...

    You know that old saying, life is what happens while you're busy making other plans? That's Grace's current situation. With her big dreams of a fashion career in NYC lying in tatters on the floor, she returns home to Iowa, and to a world she never thought she'd inhabit again. Between r...

    3.5 stars Heart Land is a sweet romance, a story of love given a second chance, the cost of following your dreams, and a touch of the glamour of high fashion. Grace Kleren has fought hard to follow her dreams of becoming a top fashion designer. After years of brutal, hard work o...

    This novel is the proof that simple is underrated. And I say this full of love, there was something about the story that reminded me of a favorite sweater - comfortable, cozy, enjoyable, the best place to be. If I don't sound convincing enough, let me say this, "Heart Land" reminds me...

    I read Heart Land in a single sitting. I had a five hour train journey ahead of me between two cities, and I tuned out to the person listening to music way too loudly next to me, and fell into the world where there is a small town girl who has big city dreams ? but a love interest wh...

    3.5 stars, review originally from my blog Katy's Library Blog Thank you so much Atria Books for sending my a copy of Heart Land in exchange for an honest review! I enjoyed this one so much it was a quick, easy, light hearted read perfect for summer! Full of southern charm and big NY...

    I made it close to the end of this book. Pretty pleasant reading for me most of the way, with some moments I found humorous. While I didn't dislike the story, though, it did lag at times. There wasn't much about the storyline or most of the characters that "popped" for me, that made...

    Oh my goodness, I loved this book so much! Knowing nothing about this author or this book, I honestly picked this read based on the cover alone. Grace, the main character in this book, grabs my heart and does not let go until the very end. This is her story of finding herself, finding ...

    Heart Land's description was accurate and misleading all at the same time. I won't go into details on what was misleading because that will probably be too much information/spoilers. But I will say that I hate when this happens--when I read a book and realize the description wasn't ent...

    Heart Land was a sweet and romantic story about second chances in life and in love. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I connected with the main character and I quickly came to love her personality as well as her grandmother's. The characters were well developed and the story was e...

    This book absolutely rocked. This is a simple novel and it is entirely underrated. I can say that it is full of love, there is this sense of familiarity with the story, it's like an old friend. I also can say that this book reminds me of the heartland and my home. It feels like home....

    Heart Land is a cute story that while has its predictable moments, there are good life lessons you can take from it. One thing I liked the most is how it emphasized that home is truly where the heart is, no matter where you go or how much you may feel like that place isn't for you and ...

    Heart Land is a delightful and sweet story of love and second chances-both of love and careers. Grace Kleren left her hometown in Iowa after high school for New York City and a career in the fashion world. After devoting her life and time in a fashion design company for several years, ...

    After a bit of a slow start, this book picked up some energy. This was a little of a roller coaster ride of emotional connection with Grace, the leading lady. There was times when I was routing so hard for her, to have me pull all sense of loyalty later on. Irritating you might say? No...

    I loved this story so much! It truly made my heart smile. I loved going through all the emotions with each character and I felt so connected to almost all of them. The heartbreak, losing faith, and love and the courage of finding it again. This story had so many special moments. I was ...

    Such a good book! Loved the story, though I felt it was a bit slow to start; it got really good! The end had me in tears, Happy tears ? Such a good book! Loved the story, though I felt it was a bit slow to start; it got really good! The end had me in tears, Happy tears ?? ...

    3.5 stars, review originally from my blog Katy's Library Blog Thank you so much Atria Books for sending my a copy of Heart Land in exchange for an honest review! I enjoyed this one so much it was a quick, easy, light hearted read perfect for summer! Full of southern charm and big NY...

    I made it close to the end of this book. Pretty pleasant reading for me most of the way, with some moments I found humorous. While I didn't dislike the story, though, it did lag at times. There wasn't much about the storyline or most of the characters that "popped" for me, that made...

    Oh my goodness, I loved this book so much! Knowing nothing about this author or this book, I honestly picked this read based on the cover alone. Grace, the main character in this book, grabs my heart and does not let go until the very end. This is her story of finding herself, finding ...

    Heart Land's description was accurate and misleading all at the same time. I won't go into details on what was misleading because that will probably be too much information/spoilers. But I will say that I hate when this happens--when I read a book and realize the description wasn't ent...

    3.5 stars Heart Land is a sweet romance, a story of love given a second chance, the cost of following your dreams, and a touch of the glamour of high fashion. Grace Kleren has fought hard to follow her dreams of becoming a top fashion designer. After years of brutal, hard work o...

    This novel is the proof that simple is underrated. And I say this full of love, there was something about the story that reminded me of a favorite sweater - comfortable, cozy, enjoyable, the best place to be. If I don't sound convincing enough, let me say this, "Heart Land" reminds me...

    This book absolutely rocked. This is a simple novel and it is entirely underrated. I can say that it is full of love, there is this sense of familiarity with the story, it's like an old friend. I also can say that this book reminds me of the heartland and my home. It feels like home....

    Heart Land is a cute story that while has its predictable moments, there are good life lessons you can take from it. One thing I liked the most is how it emphasized that home is truly where the heart is, no matter where you go or how much you may feel like that place isn't for you and ...

    This novel is the proof that simple is underrated. And I say this full of love, there was something about the story that reminded me of a favorite sweater - comfortable, cozy, enjoyable, the best place to be. If I don't sound convincing enough, let me say this, "Heart Land" reminds me...

    I read Heart Land in a single sitting. I had a five hour train journey ahead of me between two cities, and I tuned out to the person listening to music way too loudly next to me, and fell into the world where there is a small town girl who has big city dreams ? but a love interest wh...

    I have never read anything by this author and I love discovering new authors. This book was absolutely delightful. Everything about it was good. The characters were great, even secondary ones. I loved the grannies especially. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more by t...

    First off -- how on earth have I never read anything by this author before?! Once again my avid reader spidey senses failed me because I hadn't even heard of Kimberly Stuart until my library introduced us. Gotta love a public library that keeps you on your toes!!!!! So, Heart Land migh...

    I love a small-town romance, and second-chance romances are also at the top of my favorite reads list (yeah, it?s a long list but there are certain tropes I don?t pass up). Kimberly Stuart delivers both of the above (and more) in her latest book. When Grace?s big plans for her...

    There was something sweet and warming about this small-town romance. A romance that takes you back to that first time you fell in love. Learning to see the past with the future and seeing your future in your present. Grace and Tucker was sweet and refreshing at the same time. Heat Land...

    Returning home to Iowa is not exactly what Grace Kleran had in mind. She never looked back after high school, only looking forward as she studied and realized her dream of living in New York City. The fashion industry is all Grace has ever wanted to be a part of and after six years of ...

    3.5 stars, review originally from my blog Katy's Library Blog Thank you so much Atria Books for sending my a copy of Heart Land in exchange for an honest review! I enjoyed this one so much it was a quick, easy, light hearted read perfect for summer! Full of southern charm and big NY...

    I made it close to the end of this book. Pretty pleasant reading for me most of the way, with some moments I found humorous. While I didn't dislike the story, though, it did lag at times. There wasn't much about the storyline or most of the characters that "popped" for me, that made...

    Oh my goodness, I loved this book so much! Knowing nothing about this author or this book, I honestly picked this read based on the cover alone. Grace, the main character in this book, grabs my heart and does not let go until the very end. This is her story of finding herself, finding ...

    Heart Land's description was accurate and misleading all at the same time. I won't go into details on what was misleading because that will probably be too much information/spoilers. But I will say that I hate when this happens--when I read a book and realize the description wasn't ent...

    Heart Land was a sweet and romantic story about second chances in life and in love. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I connected with the main character and I quickly came to love her personality as well as her grandmother's. The characters were well developed and the story was e...

    Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. This book wasn't terrible, but it was pretty boring and just not really want I expected it to be. Such a bummer because when I first put this on my TBR I assumed it was going to be the Sweet Home Alabama book of my dreams but that was so not the case, lol. Onto th...

    This book absolutely rocked. This is a simple novel and it is entirely underrated. I can say that it is full of love, there is this sense of familiarity with the story, it's like an old friend. I also can say that this book reminds me of the heartland and my home. It feels like home....

    Heart Land is a cute story that while has its predictable moments, there are good life lessons you can take from it. One thing I liked the most is how it emphasized that home is truly where the heart is, no matter where you go or how much you may feel like that place isn't for you and ...

    Heart Land is a delightful and sweet story of love and second chances-both of love and careers. Grace Kleren left her hometown in Iowa after high school for New York City and a career in the fashion world. After devoting her life and time in a fashion design company for several years, ...

    After a bit of a slow start, this book picked up some energy. This was a little of a roller coaster ride of emotional connection with Grace, the leading lady. There was times when I was routing so hard for her, to have me pull all sense of loyalty later on. Irritating you might say? No...

    I loved this story so much! It truly made my heart smile. I loved going through all the emotions with each character and I felt so connected to almost all of them. The heartbreak, losing faith, and love and the courage of finding it again. This story had so many special moments. I was ...

    What a sweet book. Think Sweet Home Alabama with a Christian twist. It made me smile, laugh, dream, and cry. And although I?m reading this on a snowy Saturday it is a perfect summer read. ...

    A standalone novel of reconnection and rediscovering what's truly important in your life. This ARC was sent to me by NetGalley and Howard Books and Simon & Schuster for an honest review. My Take Oh, this was so, so lovely. I was riveted, especially with that opening hook, lo...

    Stuart beautifully weaves characters of substance into a plot that is light yet rich at the same time. Grace, a small town Iowa girl flies from home to spread her wings as a NYC fashionista, only to return home 10 years later. It is there, that she grows and matures into who she is mea...

    What an endearing story of learning where your heart really resides. Grace has spent ten years in New York City trying to make it as a fashion designer, only to find herself fired, in debt, and a one-way ticket home to Iowa. While trying to raise enough money to pay off her debt, bu...
