Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Edie Claire, a 4.5-star Romantic Times Top Pick and winner of the Romance Reviews Today Perfect Ten Award!

When nothing is as it seems, all you can do is trust your heart....

On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, Meara O'Rourke can't help but feel alone. With her last remaining relative newly buried and her potentially disastrous engagement freshly broken, she makes a resolution to begin her life anew - only to have an unexpected phone call turn her whole world upside down. Her biological mother, Sheila, whom she met only once six years before, lies in critical condition in a nearby hospital. And though the woman once refused to see her daughter ever again - her last wish is just the opposite.

A few whispered words, and Sheila is gone. But the questions she has put into her daughter's head, and the historic stone inn she has unknowingly bequeathed, sweep Meara up into the whirlwind of another life - and a legacy of deception. When Meara begins to have memories of a place she's never been, she realizes that while finding out the truth about her birth and adoption could answer all her questions - it could also tear her apart.

Critic Reviews

"A marvelous story that skillfully interweaves romance with the mystery.... Claire makes each element of this terrific tale count." (Romantic Times Bookclub Magazine)
"An absorbing family mystery...there's no denying that this story is suspenseful." (Publisher's Weekly)
"One of the best books I have read this year... An element of suspense runs through the pages, and the endearing tale builds to a crescendo of excitement and thrill while warming the heart. Meant to Be is a powerful story of love, healing, discovery and truth.... I closed the covers wishing I could stay inside the green world of Meara and Fletcher's mountain. Ms. Claire has woven a tale that touched my soul and will live as a cherished keeper to read again and again. I am pleased to award Meant to Be our finest honor, RRT's Perfect 10" Perfect 10 Award."

Great story

I really enjoyed this audio book. Vanessa did a great job narrating, just the right touch of enthusiasim and seriousness at the right time. Very clear enunciations. I had read this in ebook format years ago and enjoyed hearing it again on a cross country trip. The storyline is a very good one. Edie is a great author and I have enjoyed many of her books.
