Book Review: Hearts Through Time by Marie Higgins

From the second I saw this cover, I knew I had to read this book. Seriously, have you ever seen such a gorgeous cover? It almost sent me out hat shopping. I say "almost" because I don't look very good in hats.

Hearts Through Time is a ghost story with a twist. Usually, ghost stories are freaky, but this one is romantic.

From the cover: A love story that transcends time . . .

When a woman claiming to be a ghost from 1912 appears in Nick Marshal's office and begs for help in solving her murder, he thinks he has lost his mind. A scandal that rocked Hollywood almost destroyed his law practice, so he doesn't need any more fireworks as he rebuilds his life. Still, he is intrigued by Abigail Carlisle's plea, and he needs clients, even if this one insists she's dead. The more secrets Nick uncovers, the deeper he falls for the beautiful ghost.

Abigail believes Nick is her heart's true desire, but how can happily-ever-after happen when she's already dead? The more time she spends with him, the more real she becomes, until Nick can finally touch her.

In a strange turn of events, Nick is suddenly whisked back to 1912, two weeks before Abby's murder, but she doesn't remember him. When he attempts to win her over so he can save her from a tragic destiny, Abby thinks Nick is courting her for her inheritance. But even if he can rescue her and make her trust him again, how can they be together forever?

My Review: I really enjoyed this love story. The characters have great chemistry, the premise is awesome (seriously, who thinks of having a murdered person and the detective who solves her murder fall in love?) and I really enjoyed the twists and turns throughout. If you in the mood for a fun romance that's definitely off the beaten path, Hearts Through Time just might be the one for you.

FTC: I was not haunted or murdered into giving this review. I did, however, receive a free copy.
