Racing Heart review



Desiree Hart in desperate search for her kidnapped son, does everything in her power possible to find him.   
Due to a letter she receives after official search was closed, 
she changes everything;   
her appearance, her hometown and even her name.

When she meets Lorcan Shore, the Five Times F1 World Campion, their encounter is everything but ordinary. 
Out of pure fear for her life, she loses her temper and spits over everything he is absolutely certain he can do the best; how to drive.

Leaving him alone on Grand Corniche she is certain she would never see him again. But the next morning proves her being totally wrong. He was no quitter and no matter how she tries 
to run and hide, her heart desires at the end come back to the surface…

Will the man of her dreams be able to fulfil them all? Including the most important will he help her find her missing son?



The premise of this story is that a wealthy young woman is searching for her son who was stolen from her almost six years ago. Because she believes she is too obvious and visible, she changes her name, her looks and her country while she hires a private investigator to keep searching after the police give up. 

She is quite successful as a perfume designer, with the advantage of her perfumery being situated on the course used for Monte Carlos' famous Formula 1 races. Desiree is a diehard race fan.
When a near fatal crash, NOT on the race course, introduces her to F1's "Golden Boy," her reserved, private life is totally reconfigured.

This is a story about friendship, conflict, acceptance and consequences.
Strong women who do what they must to protect their loved ones, a romance that has deep rooted obstacles to overcome, secrets that harm as they hide, and discovering how to make life's toughest choices.  Is a happy ending ever possible?

Being a race fan myself, I enjoyed the trackside and garage shop talk.
I really did not know how the secrets would play out. I might have liked more explanation about some.
The storyline did twist and turn, adding to the tension.  The characters were both liked and annoying at times. Desiree sometimes could not get out of her own way!

If you enjoy a complicated love story with elements of the rich and famous lifestyle, you will enjoy this interesting debut novel.
I did receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

About June Moonbridge

The person behind the name of June Moonbridge, has many names and many faces too. Although living in the same area, she was born and raised in one country  and now living in another.

She studied economics, and quickly realised she hated it. Afterwards, she found herself working in mainly male businesses; at first in automotive and later - steel 

products productions. She can choose for you the best steel you need, but don't, please don't, ask her which lipstick to use.

She started to write in her high school and was negatively criticised by her teacher. Stubborn as she is that didn't stop her. Under different pen names for her stories she tried to get some independent opinions, which came back as good reviews 

in magazines and later she published three books.

Giving birth to two children, and learning that her second child has Autism, she married the father of them and continued to work. All that together took all of her free time. But the desire to write didn't die. When life somehow sorted itself out, she 

decided to write her novel in English and her first submission to Safkhet was rejected… 

For what happened later… read third paragraph, second sentence.
