Highly Caffeinated Rating: ☕ ☕ ☕ ☕


EVERY WILD HEART is one of those books that balances the emotion and family dynamics along with a hint of mystery that is threaded throughout. What I loved the most about this story is the evolution of Gail (the mother) and Nic (the daughter). Their relationship with each other and those around them was the element of the book that grabbed me the most. Through an honest and expressive voice, Donohue gives her readers a glimpse that the wonderfully imperfect relationship that mothers and daughters have all the while showing the love that always remains.

This is my first novel by the author and I can tell you all that it will not be my last.

Plot Summary:

From USA Today bestselling author Meg Donohue comes a mystery, a love story, and a mother-daughter tale about two women on a precarious journey to uncover their true selves.

Passionate and funny, radio personality Gail Gideon is a true original. Nine years ago when Gail’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce, her ensuing on-air rant propelled her local radio show into the national spotlight. Now, “The Gail Gideon Show” is beloved by millions of single women who tune-in for her advice on the power of self-reinvention. But fame comes at a price. After all, what does a woman who has staked her career on being single do when she finds herself falling in love? And is the person who is harassing her in increasingly troubling ways a misguided fan or a true danger to Gail and her daughter, Nic? 

Fourteen-year-old Nic has always felt that she pales in comparison to her vibrant, outgoing mother. Plagued by a fear of social situations, she is most comfortable at the stable where she spends her afternoons. But when a riding accident lands Nic in the hospital, she awakens from her coma changed. Suddenly, she has no fear at all and her disconcerting behavior lands her in one risky situation after another. And no one, least of all her mother, can guess what she will do next…
