The Artisan Heart by Dean Mayes (Book Review #475)


The Artisan Heart is a fictional story about Hayden Luschcombe. He is a married doctor who is not as happy as he should be. His wife, Adelaide is a party planner, and they both struggle to really connect just making it by. An incident separates them and causes Hayden to move. He decides, to go to Walhalla, situated in the south of Australia and introduces us to an exciting cast of characters.

Hayden meets a wonderful mother who happens to be deaf. She is a baker but struggling to succeed. The relationship between the two is what makes this story different from other fictional romance books.


As you enter this charmingly described world, you also experience the sense of connectivity between the characters. Each to its own was developed well. The pace was slow, but I think that added to the dynamic and intensity of the storyline.


Adelaide comes back to cause a stir, but her character wasn’t as strong as needed to really make her a villain. I am not sure if that was intentional, however, all together, this made the story sweet and simple.


I recommend this book to fiction readers, romance lovers and people who enjoy a well-written novel.
