Review of A Walk in Heaven By Marie Higgins

A Walk in Heaven
By Marie Higgins
Joshua Grayson is not happy about his new sister-in-law’s visit and he uses the term ‘sister-in-law’ loosely as Careen Kennedy Grayson was a complete stranger. Joshua’s brother, Matthew, left the family ranch in the dead of night to run away and wed a woman he’d never met. The fact Matthew was killed moments after walking out of the church with his new bride merely adds insult to injury. Joshua struggles with resentment and trying not to blame Careen for his brother’s death. But it is difficult not to harbor ill feelings when he knows she’s keeping secrets. Despite his suspicions, Joshua slowly grows attracted to Careen and even starts to like her. Unfortunately, Joshua knows all too well the folly of loving a woman he cannot trust.
Careen Kennedy Grayson was married and widowed within minutes of the other. When her obsessive cousin, Luther, arrives minutes after Matthew’s death, she knows deep down he’s the one who killed Matthew. Luther is arrested and held for trial while Careen takes her husband’s body back to his family. Soon after arriving at the loving Grayson ranch, Careen learns of her mother-in-law’s heart condition. Unwilling to cause undue stress, Careen decides to wait until after Luther’s trial to speak the full truth of their son’s death. Soon Careen grows embedded in family and ranch life, getting closer to the Grayson’s with each passing day. She finds herself unnaturally drawn to Joshua and she knows their budding attraction will only complicate matters… Especially when the family discovers her cousin did indeed kill Matthew.

My Review:
As all of you know, I do not like to give anything away, which is why I post the blurb. This was a wonderful book. It could have just as easily have been called Brothers. Ms. Higgins has written something for everyone, it doesn't matter what genre you read, this is a must read. Joshua and Careen are destined to be together, anyway they were for me. And when you read it, just an FYI have a box of tissues handy. The story is complicated with twists and turns and even satisfies my thirst for suspense, but in the end... Ms. Higgins, well done, again!
5 out 5 rating - MUST READ

Thank you, Mary! I especially feel honored that you reviewed this book because I realize how historial romance is not your favorite genre. So THANK YOU for reading - and enjoying my story!

Hey I wouldn't say that. One of my all time actually two of my all time favorite authors are historical romance. Make that three...
Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
Johanna Lindsey
Heather Graham (who now she's one of my favorite contemporary authors)
So... There are just some that, well you know what and why.
Very good book!
