Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington
Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington was an emotional and romantic read. I loved following Colbie and literally cried following her short time in the between. Michael was wonderful. I loved the amazing character development and scenery in this novel. The story easily flowed and kept my attention. At no point was I bored with this story and literally could not put it down. It was definitely an emotional rollercoaster of a read but I highly recommend it.
Emotional Mess is what I was after reading this book. Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington was a little different than my normal romances but the great way to see how music impacts some peoples life. But I was stuck to my kindle what to know what was going to happen to Colbie. The mother/daughter relationship between Colbie and Lyric was an amazing part of the story; reminds me too much of my own relationship with my mother. This quote “It’s not what you look at, it’s what you see” is something that will stay with me. Highly recommend this story to every woman who loves to read.
Michaels Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington
Another great new author and book. I was really hooked from the first page. I found that the author had quite a unique concept for the story. I found myself getting lost in the story. The author has a way of bringing the supernatural into the real life that blends the story and really creates it.
I really found Colbie’s character to be endearing and I found myself having a bit of a tug at my heartstrings as the story unfolded. I found that her whole life was shaped by her new zest for life. Her goal to really e is just a great story line. I really enjoyed this book and I found that the author draws you in and keeps you hooked. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
Michael’s Heart grabbed my attention from the synopsis. As an amateur musician, I’ve always associated music with emotion and often judge a piece on what emotions and how intense those emotions are. While Colbie, Lyric, and other characters are all important, it seemed like there were too many aspects to the plot right off the bat. You’ve got the competition, the song with missing lyrics, and Colbie’s accident all within the first chapter. As you read on, things don’t get crazy tangled or too much more complicated but the structuring put me off.
That being said, I enjoyed Colbie’s desperate search for what holds her soul together while also threatening to tear her apart at the seams. If you get confused at the beginning, don’t give up. The wrap up is worth it.
Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington is an emotional contemporary romance read. The author uses music perfectly to tell Colbie’s traumatic yet hopeful story and share her life with us. I really liked this read and have already recommended it to a friend!
This is one of those ‘journey’ books. We follow Colbie through so many significant events in her life that you’re really able to connect with her. After a tragic accident leaves her fighting for her life, Colbie learns that there is more to death than so many people believe. While I know many people fell for Michael as soon as we are introduced to him, I’ll admit it took me a little longer; he just seemed too perfect! Their instant connection was fun to read and when Colbie was miraculously brought back to the real world, I could feel her pain at losing Michael so quickly. So when she meets Will and his daughter, things get complicated. And oh man, did I love this! This is not you typical romance read and I think that’s what made it so refreshing and addictive. I ended up reading this in one sitting, as I just couldn’t bear to leave Colbie and her struggles alone!
Music plays a huge part in this story. If that’s your kind of thing, this is a must read. I love a music-based romance, but this exceeded all my expectations. Colbie is linked to music so deeply and this connection is really what drives this book. There is so much emotion packed into such a short read that you need to be prepared for some ups and downs. When the truth is finally realised at the end of the book prepare yourself; I was a real mix of emotions! I loved the author’s writing style and will definitely be looking at more of her work. If you like your romance with added music and hope, this is for you!

I give Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington, 4 stars.
Music is Colbie’s life. She feels so much from it. Besides her daughter, it is the love of her life. But she still feels like a part of her is missing. Then her heart stops after a tragic accident and she meets the man she never realized she needed. She wants to stay with him, but he tells her she has much more to do, she has to go back. Can she thrive with her music and family and friends or is she just waiting for the end?
This was an interesting story. It is very moving, you may be teary-eyed at least a few times. It is also very well written. It is obvious the author poured her heart into this story. You will definitely see things differently once reading this. There is usually a reason people act as they do. You may even learn something you never knew. Colbie is a very strong lead character. She has had much happen to her, but she has survived. As much as I like Colbie, I would love to see more of the other characters that interested me so much in a possible series.
If you like moving books about life and love, this book is for you! But don’t forget the tissues!

Michael’s Heart is an emotional story. You are going to cry at least once so have the tissues nearby. There isn’t too much to say regarding story line or it will ruin the outcome for you. I will say that the pertinent characters are memorable and are drawn together by the common thread of music as a soul language. I wasn’t really sure what to feel when I finished the book. Part of me recognizes the bright part of the ending, but it has an overtone of sadness as well. I suppose that makes the story more like real life when it comes down to it. Regardless, if you are in the mood to feel a myriad of emotions in a short period of time, check out this story.
Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington is a beautifully written story that had me hooked from chapter one until the end. Colbie is compassionate, strong, and very smart. One thing that Colbie always loved was music and when her heart stopped on the operating table she entered a new world. Colbie meets Michael. Here she hears the music loud and clear. When she awakened in the recovery room, she needs to gain her life back and once again her the music that always filled her.
This book was beautiful and grabbed at my heart strings. I felt like I could close my eyes and see two characters that will stay inside my heart for a long time. The author has given us a simply beautiful, emotional, journey about life and love. I give this book 5 stars and highly recommend this book!
Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington is a romance for the ages. Colbie is an amazing character who goes through some life-changing events. Will she still hear the music in her heart? I was taken in by her story and didn’t want to put this down. I was really blown away by the amount of attention and detail the author put into this story and think many will enjoy and appreciate the work she has done. What has come out of it is a beautiful story which shows the challenges that can be thrown at us and how Colbie overcomes her fears and insecurities to find her happy. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
