Review of Heartwood (Carved Hearts #3) by L.G. Pace III & Michelle Pace

"When we were kids, my cousins planned for their weddings like they were coronations. Sleepovers revolved around notebooks stuffed with clippings from bridal magazines and elaborate plans scrawled in purple ink. Horse drawn carriages, twenty tiered cakes, groomsmen in tails, and scads of bridesmaids, none of whom were nearly as pretty as the bride. Me? I'd just yawn and wander off to the backyard and play fetch with their dog. I never cared about any of that crap, at least not until I met Joe."

With her wedding rapidly approaching, Molly's days consist of herding Joe off to tux fittings and diaper changings times two. She misses life on the food truck, but she isn't quite ready to leave the twins. Planning for every detail to be as perfect as her groom, she hopes her instincts are wrong that it's all too good to be true.

Knowing Molly like he does, Joe can plainly see that his girl needs to decompress. She's as stubborn as always, and talking her into a honeymoon without the babies proves easier said than done. Molly's on edge about every little thing, from the nosey next door neighbor to cars speeding down their quiet street. While Joe revels in their otherwise blissful existence, he worries that Molly's paranoia may be a symptom of something bigger.

Come back to Austin one last time for the wedding of Molly Elizabeth Hildebrandt and Joseph Samuel Jensen. Raise a glass in celebration alongside their family and closest friends. Wave goodbye as they ride off into the sunset toward a dark fork in the road that could destroy their happily ever after. Will they finally get their fairytale ending? Find out in Heartwood, the explosive conclusion to the Carved Hearts series.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
This is the perfect conclusion to the Carved Heats series by authors L. C. Pace III and Michelle Pace.  In Heartwood our two main characters from the first two books in this series, Molly and Joe are finally finding their happily ever after. If you loved getting to know Molly and Joe in Good Wood and Mollywood, you will not want to miss this finale. 

The twins are safe and healthy, the wedding is in its final stages of planning and life is looking really good for Molly and Joe. What is that old saying about too good to be true…or waiting for the other shoe to drop?  Of course like all couples they do have their ups and downs, but the love and commitment is strong and steady.  So what if they are both exhausted with caring for the twins or not having alone time for each other they still have each other, the twins and their families.

With the wedding date fast approaching, Molly wants everything to be perfect. She is working so hard at making everything perfect that she is at a breaking point. The food trucks are doing well without her, yet Molly feels a yearning for something else.  While at the back of her mind Molly cannot help but think that something is about to happen and it doesn’t feel like a good something. Joe can see that Molly is struggling to keep her head above water with all of the self-induced worries.   He has a few ideas of how he can get her mind off of all the pressures she is feeling but the only problem is getting Molly to let go and enjoy them with him!
