JUST LIKE HEAVEN
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
Bretton's lyrical writing enthralls from the first page as she immerses readers in a tale of romance and new beginnings. Focusing on relationships between mothers and daughters and friends and lovers, the author expertly draws characters that are completely realistic.
Forty-one-year-old Kate French, the successful owner of a New Jersey antique store, is content with her life as the single mother of Gwynn, a twentysomething woman unsure of her career path. When Kate is stricken by a sudden heart attack, the man who saves her is wearing a Grateful Dead T-shirt and driving a battered blue Honda.
As she recovers from her brush with death, Kate can't get the mysterious stranger out of her mind. Unbeknownst to her, Mark Kerry, her rescuer, doesn't know which hospital admitted Kate and is searching for her. When they finally meet, they aren't prepared for the sparks that ignite between them as they seek to forge a new relationship unencumbered by the baggage of their pasts. (JOVE, Mar., 320 pp., $7.99)
