Hott Review:

Reading Just Like Heaven really is just like heaven.

I loved every moment of reading this book! I laughed. I cried. And I was frightened half to death.

To me, one of the most romantic things is when people who’ve known each other their lives fall in love. Something extra wonderful about having that history together and then Falling in Love after all those experiences and memories. Marcus and Honoria (how on earth do you pronounce that anyway?) Are really great people! I couldn’t help but think what it would be like to have them in my life.

The most special thing about Just Like Heaven is how the Smythe-Smith family took him in and treated him like one of their own. It was very heartbreaking when Daniel left and left Marcus alone the Redemption came and the sweet romance blossom.

I’ll be keeping a copy of this on my shelf! I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

Author Bio:

Julia Quinn#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don’t read (or write) romance, and in 2001 she did so in grand style, competing on the game show The Weakest Link and walking away with the $79,000 jackpot. She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a Da Vinci long before there was a code.

In 2010, Ms Quinn won her third RITA Award in four years and was the thirteenth author to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. Her books have been translated into twenty-eight languages, and she has been profiled in USA Today and TIME Magazine. Her twenty-third novel, The Sum of All Kisses, was released in late 2013.
