Sequel doesn't quite pack the punch of original, still a solid story

The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love by Angela Hunt is the novelized version of the Hallmark movie. Peyton MacGruder's career as the Heart Healer is taking off at the newspaper, as is her relationship with fellow reporter Kingston Danville. The new bond with the daughter she gave up for adoption 18 years ago is a little shaky, but Peyton is loving every moment of getting to know Christine. After writing a column about the value of choosing caution over passion, she receives a letter from a reader, Eve, who scolds her for being shortsighted and maybe missing out on something wonderful. As the two women get to know each other, they are both forced to confront choices and rethink their lives. Hunt is one of my favorite writers, and while it can be difficult to make novelizations as enthralling as their movie counterparts, she brings each character to life. Being a long time fan of Genie Francis, Hunt perfectly captured the actress' nuances and mannerisms making each scene vivid. The plot, though a bit fluffy, is rendered with care and depth, and the lesson about learning to trust your heart is a good one. It's a perfect, quick beach read for summer.
