    6. Der Klappentext hatte mich sehr angesprochen, aber irgendwie wollten das Buch und ich nicht so ganz warm werden.Der Einstieg hat es mir bereits sehr schwer gemacht, da ich die Protagonistin sehr unsympathisch fand und ich leider nicht so ganz mit ihr mitf hlen konnte Dadurch konnte mich auch der weitere Verlauf der Geschichte nicht so richtig begeistern, auch wenn Maggie s Verhalten irgendwann angenehmer wurde.Ich mag B cher, die sich an einer bucket list orientieren, aber hier war das irgendwie [...]

    19. Maggie O Hara lives thanks to a heart donated by Lucy Harte But Maggie isn t living life to the full.The Legacy of Lucy Harte is a lovely book Well written and with naturalistic dialogue I found it sucked me in to Maggie s life I didn t much like Maggie to begin with and I think this is a strength of the book Emma Heatherington creates a character in free fall following the break up of Maggie s marriage Maggie is drowning in self pity metaphorically and in alcohol literally and she s not a pleas [...]

    20.

    21. Starts out promising, ends up far too maudlin for my tastes.Entertaining in a beach read kind of way, with an interesting premise and a positive message However, the writing quality declines as the book progresses, and it turns from a novel of self discovery into a sappy romance, complete with the type of men who don t let being a very hot catch get in the way of of their deep sensitivity always saying things like, You look pale, are you sure you re all right and undying devotion to the amazing [...]
