Birdie h Finding a home and love at Birdie's Nest for one little chick and an old rooster If I could give this book 10 Stars I would! Once again Daisy Gold has blown me away with just how much emotion she can pack into a novella. The Heart Thief is the fifth book in the Real Good Men of Arkansas series and is the story of Emmet "Emmie" Behr and Katrina "Kat" Novak. Emmet is in his forties and works with his older brother Oscar "Ozzie" and his wife Birdie at Birdie's Nest, a camp in the mountains. Birdie has turned it into "the most popular, redneck-elite campground in three states." They have a campground, cabins, horses, hiking, a restaurant and more. Emmet built a cabin on the property and is good there as he can work out his own demons in peace. Kat is twenty-three years old and the last several years have been hard. Her father had served with Oscar and had also had a few encounters with Emmet while they were all overseas in combat. Kat had lived with her father in Florida for a few years until one day she came home to find him dead by suicide when she was seventeen. After that instead of going to live with her mother in NYC she got involved with a man who taught her how to steal, grift and con. A couple of years ago Oscar went to Florida to find her as she had disappeared. When he found her in Miami she tried to run a con on him but he was not having it and instead gave her two choices - leave with him or leave with the cops, that is after he kicked the stuffing out of her boyfriend and a couple other guys that were in the apartment. She took the right one and left with Oscar. He took her up to Pensacola where he got her set up in an apartment and helped her access her Dad's survivor benefits. Then a deal was made between them so that she would get her education and he would pay for tuition and rent, plus she had to stay away from her old friends. Now she is on her way to Birdie's Nest because there is a job waiting for her as a cook in the restaurant. Emmet and Kat have an "interesting" first encounter at a truck stop. When she bumps into him inside the store all he can say is "Snow White" because she is like magic with her read tank top, full lips, dark eye and darker hair. But this is no fairy tale which Emmet is about to find out. But like in fairy tales our Snow White slips away without a trace but he does find her a bit later, or really she drives up the next morning. I loved this story and it gave me all the feels that I could handle, and then some. The characters, both Kat and Emmie and all the supporting characters also, are wonderfully written with expansive histories that intertwine in ways that you don't expect but that just make sense organically. There is a family at Birdie's Nest that rally around and look after each other. Well there is one who is not nice at all that I wanted to boot up the backside more than a few times but her ending was good, no she does not die but she does get the boot. A definite Recommend Read!!!

While in there he feels like something is coming he just doesn't know what. He soon finds out and the only thought is Snow White. He later finds out this is the daughter of a man both he and his brother served with. No what his brother might say to him he knows this woman has to be his. Kat has had nothing but trouble in her life. She has gone through the separation and later divorce of her parents, neither really wanting to be there for her it feels like. To finding her father dead in his bedroom and becoming homeless. To meeting up with the wrong guy and having Oscar have to come save her. So when she comes to be the new chef in the campgrounds it is a whole new world of trouble. She really hopes that she can have something with Emmet though since he's the first good thing she's felt like she could have in a long time. Will these two get there HEA or will outside forces make sure that never happens? This is another amazing story in this series. It does have its ups and downs I really want to tell you about. However I don't want to ruin the story for any other readers. I will say this book will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    The best book ever!. Kat needed space. She’s had a rough life. And she doesn’t know how to ask for help unless her back is up against the wall and even then she doesn’t ask. But she’s willing to help everyone else if need be. Polar opposite of what you would expect. So when she pickpockets Emmett at the truckstop and only gets $14 which is enough to get her to her Destination. she swears it’s the last time it’ll happen again.

But the problem is is that she watched Emmett in the parking lot when he realize he’s been pickpocketed to see if he can catcher. He’s instantly attracted to her when she “bumped into him “. He is only says snow white. From there she hast to come to terms with her past her present and her unknown future. Love the characters and it is definitely the blatant night in shining armor but I have to take a pause for the cause to be asked to help for Denzel the damsel in distress. But the meantime there attraction for each other is worth the wait. No cliffhanger. There’s actually a true villain in the story. can’t wait to see if this one has an extended epilogue in another book!

The next day when Kat arrived at the ranch, she thought Emmet was going to fire her, but he told her he would keep it a secret. Emmet's brother Oscar thought Kat should be treated like family because her father was a good friend to him, so he wanted Kat to stay in Emmet's cabin instead of the bunkhouse with the other staff. Emmet was having a hard time controlling his feelings for Kat while living with her. I really loved this story. I loved Emmet, i thought he really cared for Kat and it was love at first sight. Kat felt safe with Emmet, and i think she knew hen would be there for her. This was another good one in this good series.

    Okay THIS is what I'm talking about !!! When I "discovered" this author last year, I immediately fell in love with her writing style and her first few books in the Real Good Men of Oklahoma series were just phenomenal. But suddenly something happened and they started to leave a kind of rotten taste in my mouth. I thought "Darn, maybe Daisy burned out? Ran out of ideas? Lost her mojo? Who knows. . ." I kept reading even though I continued to be somewhat disappointed with every other story . . .but Okay THIS is what I'm talking about !!!

The writing was poetic and beautiful, painting the perfect picture I could see in my head of Birdie's Nest Campground and the romance between Emmet and Kat was hot, sweet, and genuine without being too OTT. Loved it!

    Lovely book about redemption. Emmet does what he has to heal from the war. Kat needs it from mistakes she made while young – and who hasn’t? We have another woman who thinks she knows better than anyone and keeps sticking her nose into Kat’s business. One of those you just want to… slap. Hard. The way that Emmet respects Kat and her independence makes me go all gooey inside. The way the characters interact really adds to the depth of the story.

    I have really enjoyed this quick read, I felt a connection to both Kat and Emmet. Kat had been dealt a bad hand in life but I admired her for her inner strength and courage to make a change and go for the kind of life she wanted. Emmet was such a good character; the things he said, the things he did, the secrets he kept and the values and beliefs he lived by, what a man *sigh*. I thought it was a good story which flowed well, it held my interest and I liked the characters.

    Kat and Emmet have an interesting first meeting and I thought it was a great start to their story. I felt for Kat because she had been through a lot but still wanted to be better and make things work. I also loved that Emmet spent time writing in his hammock. Emmet and Kat were great together and I am glad they got their happy ending. I received an ARC and am leaving my honest and voluntary review.
