Well done Amy, in any event! Joe Reply Amy Foreman January 14, 2017 😉 Reply simone January 15, 2017 Answer to riddle is ‘heart’ Reply Michelle T Simon January 15, 2017 Yes, the answer is a heart. More precisely, it refers to the human heart. As to clues… I thought “palpitations” gave it away and almost changed/left out those last two lines. In any case, I hope it was a fun tease. Reply Michelle T Simon January 15, 2017 BTW the title of my book is Heart of Malice. Oh, the difference one letter can make, huh? Reply Connie Cherish January 18, 2017 I thought of the heart the first time I read the riddle.
