In Every Heartbeat is about three friends, Libby Conley, Pete Leidig and Bennett Martin. They grew up in an orphanage. When they became adults, they went their separate ways. Bennett Martin pledges into a fraternity and just wants to have fun. Pete wants to become a minister, and Libby wants to be a famous journalist.

Libby finds it hard to be a writer in the early 1900s. Editors keep telling her to write romance stories and leave the news journalists to the men.

Pete decides to track down his birth parents and learns that his younger brother has been charged with murder. With the help of Libby, they try to set his brother free.

I have read several novels by Kim Vogel Sawyer and found this novel to be different from the others. I liked that the book was set in my home state, Missouri. I enjoyed the character Libby the most, since she is a struggling writer. There is a little mystery plot thrown into the story, and a little romance. It is a good read.

*I would like to thank Bethany House for sending me a copy to review.
