A Heart This Big by Cheyenne Blue



⭐⭐☆


Rich girl-poor girl, city-country, high-intensity lawyer – deeply committed farmer, not-much-to-do-with-kids – devoted mom running programs for kids on her farm – the number of opposite characteristics that the author has woven in are a lot, but all done in a non-obtrusive way simply as a part of characterisations.

Nina Pellegrini owns a huge plot of land left to her by her grandmother on the outskirts of Sydney. The city has expanded and a heap of suburban housing units have sprung up around Nina’s Banksia Farm. An opportunistic builder is trying to buy the land from Nina at a cost much lower than the market rate. In any case, Nina is not interested in selling because though she is cash-strapped, she runs a number of programs for children on the farm and knows that the exposure that the farm gives the children are important living skills. There is an unfortunate riding accident with one of the kids and Nina is slapped with an insurance case. She approaches Leigh Willoughby reputed to be the best in these kind of lawsuits. Nina doesn’t have the money and Leigh doesn’t have the time.

The initial part of the book where Nina slowly convinces Leigh to take her on as a pro bono case and their growing attraction is excellently written. It falters in the middle when Leigh doesn’t seem to be really doing anything at all about Nina’s case. It would’ve been stronger if we could have seen Leigh’s commitment and effort in handling the legalities just so that Nina’s gratitude later would seem justified. The chemistry between the MCs is really good and there is rather believable backing-and-forthing too.

We absolutely adored Leigh’s paralegal, Grizz.

On the whole, a great first-half and an okay later part.
