Hearts on Hold

 When Cate’s island home is threatened, what will she sacrifice to save it?

Hearts on Hold Cover

After searching for a place where nobody knows her name or asks why she’s alone, Cate Boyd has settled in the sleepy Gozo village of Xlendi. Here she has privacy, anonymity, the serene life she craves, far from her former world.

Her peace is shattered when monolithic development company Vena announces its plans to level her village, and threatens to expose Cate if she stands in its way. Can the arrival of seductive, nosy professor Brandon Blackshaw really be coincidental when Vena is his research partner? Will he keep his promise to help, or will he betray her too?

As the pressure mounts, Cate must decide which is more important: her hard-won privacy, or the future of her beloved Xlendi.

“…beautifully written, a story of love, grief and acceptance, and finding the one that can make you feel whole again. First time author Ms. MacGregor is a magical storyteller.” (See full review here.)

“Gracie Macgregor has written Hearts On Hold beautifully with good research and likable characters. Her description of the smallest detail and her insight does not fail to move you.” (See full review here.)

“This is a smart, sexy, funny and suspenseful tale. Oh, there’s romance alright – but it’s at the heart of a multi-layered story filled with mystery, foul play, heartache, history, art and humour.” (See full review here.)

“I really enjoyed Hearts On Hold and am kicking myself for waiting so long to read it. Not having read anything by Gracie Macgregor I wasn’t sure what to expect. All I can say is she has a fan in me now. This story just reached out and grabbed me. I loved the setting, the characters, the background, everything!” (See full review here.)
