Love is calling.... Wait for the beep! A widowed mother of two, Annie Harlowe has a secret: She likes to call her late husband's cell phone just to hear his voice, even if it is only a recording. Then one night she dials - and something extraordinary happens....
Thomas Brannock IV has had his life mapped out since he was a kid, but a free-spirited woman with flowing hair and sun-kissed cheeks is about to change all that. Still reeling from her heart-to-heart with the other side - and wondering if she's so lonely she's gone off her rocker - Annie literally bumps into Thom at the posh soiree she's catering at his family's Southampton mansion. From the moment she looks into his eyes she feels like she's experiencing a true heavenly intervention - as two people from totally different worlds begin to make the most passionate connection of all...with a little help from above!
First, the narrator sounded way too young for such a serious story. And it was definitely a serious story.
My main complaint with this book is unfair to the author - it just isn't the type of romance I prefer to read.
The story will appeal to those who enjoy a teeny bit of the supernatural with their romances. Those who enjoy super-rich heroes with snobby mothers will probably like it, too.
It wasn't badly written, the characters are fairly well fleshed out and the back stories are engaging, but it's just so sad it depressed me.
My personal benchmark - Will I read this book again? No, I don't think so.
