From rising star Amy Hatvany, an engrossing new novel about a woman whose life is turned upside down when the man she's engaged to suddenly becomes a full-time father to the children from his previous marriage.

Thirty-six-year-old Grace McAllister never longed for children. But when she meets Victor Hansen, a handsome, charismatic divorced restaurateur who is father to Max and Ava, Grace decides that, for the right man, she could learn to be an excellent part-time stepmom. After all, the kids live with their mother, Kelli. How hard could it be?

At thirteen, Ava Hansen is mature beyond her years. Since her parents' divorce, she has been taking care of her emotionally unstable mother and her little brother--she pays the bills, does the laundry, and never complains because she loves her mama more than anyone. And while her father's new girlfriend is nice enough, Ava still holds out hope that her parents will get back together and that they'll be a family again. But only days after Victor and Grace get engaged, Kelli dies suddenly under mysterious circumstances--and soon, Grace and Ava discover that there was much more to Kelli's life than either ever knew.

Narrated by Grace and Ava in the present with flashbacks into Kelli's troubled past, Heart Like Mine is a poignant, hopeful portrait of womanhood, love, and the challenges and joys of family life.

Review:

"Like a gorgeous dark jewel, Hatvany's novel explores the tragedy of a mind gone awry, a tangled bond of father and daughter, and the way hope and love sustain us. It does what the best fiction does: it makes us see and experience the world differently."--Caroline Leavitt "New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You "

"I was transfixed by Cadence and her heart-wrenching dilemma. The writing is visceral, the problems are real, and there are no clear solutions. You won't want to put it down."--Emily Giffin "New York Times bestselling author of Where We Belong "

"Beautiful and deeply moving, Amy Hatvany writes about the tangled web of family in a way that makes you laugh, cry, cheer and ache. This book has so much heart."--Sarah Jio "New York Times bestselling author of Blackberry Winter "

"Heart Like Mine fearlessly explores men and women desperate to measure up to the rigors of parenthood, but still failing their children. Hatvany bring sympathy and compassion to the page, while never losing sight of the damage children suffer when their parents make bad decisions."--Randy Susan Meyers "bestselling author of The Murderer's Daughters "

"I'm telling everyone about Best Kept Secret. It's the realistic and ultimately hopeful story of Cadence, whose glass of wine at the end of the day becomes two...then...three...then a bottle. I love that Cadence feels so familiar, she could be my neighbor, my friend, or even my sister."--Jennifer Weiner "#1 New York Times bestselling author "

"By turns gripping and revelatory, Heart Like Mine is a sympathetic exploration of blended family dynamics. In her affecting new novel, Amy Hatvany pulls no punches; her characters grapple with life's big moments--marriage, parenthood, death--but she renders each of them with compassion and understanding. Heart Like Mine tells an honest, hopeful story that resonates in all the best ways."--Jillian Medoff "bestselling auhtor of I Couldn't Love You More "

"A heartfelt, moving story about the lasting effects of grief amidst family bonds and breakups, and the healing powers of love, honesty, and acceptance. Hatvany writes with such wise compassion for every one of her characters."--Seré Prince Halverson "author of The Underside of Joy "

"A palpable love story, emotional search for and acceptance of a lost parent, and a bittersweet ending make for an enveloping, heartfelt read."--Publishers Weekly

"Will delight readers...vivid and written with a depth of feeling."--Library Journal

"The voices are so down-to-earth and familiar and the events so much like real life that readers will feel like they know the characters...An uplifting and heartwarming experience."
--Kirkus Reviews
