    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    This was a cute, romance story that was a light read for me. Touching a bit on the religion side, I thought the novel main emphasis was that even though Grace wished to move on, her childhood home would always be a part of her. Living in Iowa my entire life, there were parts of this...

    ????? / 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    I loved the characters. Their story was classic but genuine. What I didn?t love was the forced religious undertones. It felt out of place. The story would have been 4 stars if it just stuck to the characters and the celebration of them. ...

    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...

    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....

    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...

    Rom-com gold. ?. Love that Stuart puts her characters in a made up Iowa town, but makes it every bit as real as the Iowa towns I grew up by. And despite her publisher?s fears, I think the cover is adorable. It?s not ?ominous? and the stars don?t ?look like an alien invas...
