Book Review

This Wandering Heart by Janine Rosche

Just so you know, I’ve been wanting to read this book for months. I finally got the chance.


I have had the Madison River Romance books (the first two) on my TBR wishlist for a while so I was SO excited to get them both to read. Janine Rosche’s debut, This Wandering Heart is a triumph and gave me all the feels. It’s a 5 start debut in my book, (excuse the pun) which set me up to immediately start reading book 2. I look forward to book 3 coming out in Jan 2021. Rosche deals with the messy issues of life and hope, healing, and forgiveness. This is a second-chances story that truly warmed my heart, had me in tears, and turning the last page with a sigh of satisfaction.

Robbie and Kiera’s story quickly drew me in and I fell hard and fast for these characters. They are complex and flawed and real and are struggling to find their place. Robbie and Kiera were relatable and the romance was spot on, only making this even more unputdownable.

Janine Rosche is a bright new voice to watch.

His Wandering Heart by Janine Rosche


In the first entry in the Madison River Romance series, Keira Knudsen gets the traveling opportunity of a lifetime, but when she reunites with her first love, Robbie, she learns that even a wandering heart needs a home….

No one in the quaint town of West Yellowstone, Montana knows that unassuming geography teacher Keira Knudsen moonlights as sensational travel blogger Kat Wanderfull. No one, that is, except for her first love, Robbie Matthews, who has just discovered the woman he is falling for online is the same one that broke his heart five years ago.

But Robbie has another problem: the mother of his daughter, Anabelle, has resurfaced after a three-year absence determined to rip Anabelle away from him. Robbie needs a steady paycheck for a chance at custody, and now, on the eve of a grand adventure that could give Keira a chance to flee her old, troubled life once and for all, she is in need of assistance.

With so much broken trust between them, Keira and Robbie must keep an arms-length away to make this partnership work. But the more time they spend together, exploring majestic places and sharing new experiences, the closer they get–until their secrets and dreams threaten to cost them everything.

Author Janine Rosche
