I have come to enjoy Dual Timeline books. Hearts Under Fire by Cori Lynn is the debut novel and a dual timeline book. I was excited to read a book by a Debut Author. The book is set in 1941 and the Present day. 

Laura is an antique expert and she is excited when she comes across a old Steamer Trunk. Upon examining the Trunk further, she discovers an old journal from 1941. Laura dives into the journal and discovers the LOVE story of High School Sweethearts of Ava and Dean. Ava and Dean were happily in LOVE when Dean gets sent out to fight on the frontlines during WWII. Ava journals about her being home and the struggles she endures with Dean fighting in War. Laura is encouraged by Ava's journal, when the Journal abruptly ends. Laura is determined  to find out what became of Ava and Dean, especially Ava. Will Laura find out the ending to the Journal and LOVE Story? Will Laura be able to be encouraged to find love again after a devasting loss? 

I was hooked into this book from the very beginning. Cori Lynn has a GREAT Writing style and for her debut novel, a VERY interesting Storyline!! I absolutely adore Laura and how she loves to discover new things and uncover treasures. Her interest in Ava and Dean's love story was just so heartwarming. Ava is a strong woman who seems to be waiting for love during Wartime, as Dean is on the frontlines of the War. The Author, Cori Lynn, really researched the time period and grabs the reader in with the Historical facts of WWII. I really enjoy the comparison between Laura and the loss of her fiancé to Ava waiting for Dean to come back from war. 2 woman who experienced LOVE and heartache. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Romance books! FANTASTIC BOOK!

More from Cori

Hearts Under Fire is a historical romance with a contemporary twist. The historical plotline was inspired by the first-hand accounts provided by my grandparents on both sides of the family. Hearts Under Fire differs in that it brings in a contemporary twist and it explores the idea of the parallels between the love story in 1941 and the contemporary love story from present day.
