    1. Have you ever discovered that you were dating someone you had strong feelings for and they just didn't reciprocate those intense emotions, only to discover that you were more in love with the idea of being in love than with the person you thought you were in love with? If this rings true to you, then you'll want to read Blue Heart Blessed. Susan Meissner has done it again with this book and created a masterful tale of love and loss, healing and hope, and what to do with the hole in our hearts th [...]



    2. This author has a very interesting and entertaining writing style. However, I don't think she did a great job with her character development on this book. So while it's entertaining, it's not super deep or thought provoking. So if you're looking for an easy, interesting read, I recommend it. If you want something deeper, skip this one. By the way, it's about a girl turning 30 who is trying to find the guy of her dreams. The main theme is not of interest ot me, so I almost didn't read it. The aut [...]


    3. Blue Heart Blessed is an emotional love story of two people who have been hurt by others, only to come together and discover how great love can be the second time around. I enjoyed reading this book.There was one thing that I started skipping in this book, that was when the main character started writing in a note book to her self, and would send messages back to her self. I would still recomend this book to be read.


    4. This book was a real tear-jerker for me. But sometimes a good cry is not a bad thing, so I loved the book. The relationships that you watch the main character form and strengthen are really touching. I love the reason for the book's name, which is of course discovered as you read. Susan Meissner is a great writer.


    5. After being Jilted at the altar Daisy struggles to "get over it". I really like Susan Meissner. Engaging plot without any questionable content. I don't read much in the adult fiction arena for that reason but with Susan Meissner it isn't a concern.


    6. 4.75 starsThis book blessed my heart. The characters became real as the story unfolded. The struggles of the people in the book to grow and change were interesting. I smiled, I cried, I was happy when things worked out.


    7. Well-written, interesting enough to keep me engagedbut why must a girl's broken heart always be fixed by the love of a man? That's not entirely fair, as in this book Daisy does seek healing in God's love, but for once I'd like there to be a happy ending without a romance. Call me crazy.


    8. Not sure I'll be finishing this one. Picked it up by mistake at the library.Well, I did finish it, and that is all I have to say.



    9. 2.5 starsUnlike Meissner's other books I have read, this book was very specific in its references to God, prayer, Christian spiritual influences in the protagonist's life, etc. All of her books have been very clean and I have felt comfortable recommending her writing, however this book may not be for everyone. Very clean, sweet love story but of all the Susan Meissner books I've read (nine total), this was my least favorite story line. I do look forward to reading her new book, "A Bridge Across [...]


    10. This story will stir your heartWow! To think I almost stopped reading this story. A refreshing romance written with a unique voice that I admit took a bit to get used to, and I am glad I did. This book sends a message of God's love that resonates with the climax of the story; few authors can do that with success and that's why I'm giving this book an exceptional rating.


    11. Cute little story with a happy ending. I liked the characters, even Harriet. But it seemed that the letters to Harriet were repetitious of the previous narrative. And that got a little monotonous for me.That said, this is the 3rd book I've read of Susan Meissner and I will be starting Secrets of a Charmed Life this afternoon. I like her style and stories, and the absence of vulgarity.


    12. Such a funny, clean romance. My only critique is that the author just ends the book. Something feels like it's missing at the end. Everything is resolved in the story, but it doesn't feel that way.


    13. This is not the one of Meissner's to read. Secrets of a Charmed Life and Fall of Magnolias are both so much better. As a writer myself, I understand you have works that serve to develop you as a writer. This was one for Susan. Move on to her better works.



    14. Quick romance style beachy read. Didn't really think it was that interesting. Disappointing, considering I enjoyed "Secrets of a Charmed Life" and "A Fall of Marigolds"


    15. I picked up this book expecting it to be the same old repeated theme: jilted bride gets jilted by groom and suddenly find love after a couple months of therapy. Well, believe me, it's not that kind of theme.Daisy is a 29-year old woman, who one year ago ten days before her wedding, her fiancé Daniel told her that he couldn't go through with the wedding. Daisy then opens a shop call Something Blue to try to sell her dress and is still in the process of self-healing and understanding what happen [...]


    16. This was not one of my favorite Meissner books, though it was an enjoyable read. I think I was put off by the degree of repetitiveness in the story, as the main character, Daisy, keeps a journal, which she writes in fairly religiously, so the reader watches her behaviors as they unfold, then reads her journal entries chronicling those very same behaviors, followed by the response of her personified journal, "Harriet", who discusses Daisy's behavior as the voice of reason. (I hope I am not confus [...]


    17. Daisy's finance walked away from her ten days before the wedding. Daisy is constantly questioning herself. She worries about her behaivor and other people's reactions to her all the time. She even writes to a secret non existent advisor she calls Harriet. Then she writes Harriet's answers. she also has a mother who is always trying to fix her up with dates she doesn't want to date.Part comedy, part romance, the characterization in this book is very good. Daisy has many friends, runs a used dress [...]


    18. I thought I would like this book more than I did. I fell in love with the premise right away. What a great idea to open a bridal shop in Uptown Minneapolis that sells used (or sometimes unused) wedding dresses, with a little blue silk heart blessed by Daisy's friend Father Laurent, sewn inside. I'm not sure when it all started to feel wrong. How did this smart, business-savvy woman turn into a hopeless mess that thinks she can't find happiness until she falls in love with the right man? I really [...]


    19. A very sweet story, one that seems to slowly wrap itself around the reader. It flirts with the formulaic, but the flawed heroine sometimes rises above the usual. Even the letters she writes to her alter-ego (and answers) manage to endear her as the story develops. I liked it much more as a "personal journey" than as a romance, though the premise of the second-hand bridal shop was hopeful.Again, though, the inclusion of an epilogue in which ALL the characters are too-neatly disposed of into coupl [...]


    20. A good book. Before the story opens, a young woman, Daisy, was jilted by her finance so she opens a second-hand boutique that sells bridal gowns. However, she cannot bring herself to sell her own gown. Her shop is on the main floor of a small apt. building, which she also manages. She keeps a history on every dress she sells and she sews a blue satin heart into each one, which has been blessed by a priest. Daisy keeps a journal where she "talks out" all her choices and decisions. The characters [...]


    21. I read this book because one of my favorite books recently was another book by this author, Shape of Mercy. This one wasn't quite on par with that one, but still very enjoyable. I was looking for a very easy read, and I do enjoy how Meissner mixes Christian themes that keep the book clean. My favorite parts were when the main character wrote "letters" to Harriet and Harriet's advice column back. They were very clever. Though you kind of know the end from the beginning, that Ramsey will end up ge [...]


    22. I loved this book. Loved it. This is the second book by Susan Meissner that I have read and I think she is a wonderful story teller. Her characters have depth, I get pulled into the story and don't want to put the book down. Blue Heart Blessed was wonderful and speaks of Gods' love for us in a way that isn't preachy but very real. Daisy's journey to finding love once again is captivating from beginning to end. This is a book that I borrowed from the library but I now want to buy so I can read it [...]


    23. What's a girl to do with her wedding dress when she gets jilted 10 days before her wedding? She starts a new life by opening a consignment shop for used wedding dresses. Add "something blue" by having your neighbor, a retired Episcopal priest bless a little blue heart to put in each dress. Such is the case with Daisy, who we get to know layer by layer through Susan Meissner's beautiful writing. Great Book. My favorite part is that Daisy has a journal named Harriet, that writes back to her sort o [...]


    24. A romance, but not just another romance. It tells of hurt, dissappointment and the struggle to get back on your feet and be able to let a new relationship find you. I have to admit I appreciate Christian authors who allow relationships with God to be part of their character's lives. I think since those relationships are such a big part of my life I feel like something is missing when the topic is avoided in most novels. Good, safe read where I learned something about appreciating the people arou [...]


    25. In the year after her fiance calls off the wedding ten days before the ceremony, Daisy opens a secondhand bridal shop. In addition to the bridal shop, she manages the building where the shop is located, including the 10 apartments. The title Blue Heart Blessed refers to the little blue hearts Daisy has sewn into each of the gowns she sells. Each heart is blessed by a retired Episcopalian priest, Father Laurent.


    26. This book was written by the same gal who wrote "The Shape of Mercy", which I highly recommend and totally loved. Blue Heart Blessed was an enjoyable read, with a very sweet ending. It wasn't as captivating, however as The Shape of Mercy. But I like this author. She is always adding little religious messages throughout the story. Little snippets of truth, all along the way, about God and the love He allows us to feel while here on the earth. I'm sure I will read all of her books eventually!


    27. Another good early novel by my new favorite fiction author, Susan Meissner. Her books get even better as she writes more. This novel about loss and finding hope and perhaps healing again is more overtly "Christian fiction" than her later books (I seem to be reading them backwards, like a literary Merlin), but does not get preachy or doctrinal except in ways that doctrine applies to everyone. I looked forward to reading more of this book each night and was sorry to see it end.
