The Tell-Tale Heart by Jill Dawson is out!

After years of excessive drink and sex, Patrick has suffered a massive heart attack. Although he's only fifty, he's got just months to live. But a tragic accident involving a teenager and a motorcycle gives the university professor a second chance. He receives the boy's heart in a transplant, and by this miracle of science, two strangers are forever linked.

Though Patrick's body accepts his new heart, his old life seems to reject him. Bored by the things that once enticed him, he begins to look for meaning in his experience. Discovering that his donor was a local boy named Drew Beamish, he becomes intensely curious about Drew's life and the influences that shaped him--from the eighteenth-century ancestor involved in a labor riot to the bleak beauty of the Cambridgeshire countryside in which he was raised. Patrick longs to know the story of this heart that is now his own. (publisher)

This sounds like a really interesting book. When I was younger I read one about a girl who received a brain transplant and then she could share thoughts with the girl from whom she got the brain - sounds odd, but the book was great! It was by Meg Cabot, I think. Anyway, enough rambling. This book looks great and I'm definitely adding it to my reading list. Also, your blog looks really interesting, I'll try and visit some more. I've just recently starting blogging about books myself, so it'll be nice to read some others!
