For Annie Harlowe, her husband Andre's death was more than just the loss of her mate. Along with Andre, Annie lost her very foundation-her best friend, her lover, the father of her children. The spontaneous man who would take the kids off on "adventures", the man who let her work through the night on art projects that kept her sane, disappeared into the untamable waters of the Atlantic Ocean, taking with him the imperfect "perfect" life that was Annie's rock.

So Annie muddles through the days, a...more
Felt like the resolution was stretched out a bit...but really enjoyed this story. A fun read.

This book was a surprisingly enjoyable read. Normally I would pick a book based on the cover but I am glad I took a chance on this one. What happens when you meet your soul mate, fall in love and marry. You have the perfect life, two great kids and a dream of the future. What happens when your soul mate dies? This is what happens to the Annie who is suddenly left alone to raise two children on a limited income. As with anyone dealing with grief she has refused to let go. She keeps his clothes, h...more

2.5 stars. The story had charm and potential, but too much pondering and inaccurate second guessing by the h/h muddled it.

Story Brief:
Annie and Andre are married with two kids. Andre dies. Annie periodically calls Andre’s cell phone so she can hear his voice message. A year later she calls; and instead of hearing his voice message, she hears him saying different words among a lot of static. This happens a few times during the story. Annie makes a living baking cookies for a caterer and selling a...more
The book was intense and bittersweet. I also thought that it was realistic in its portrayal of Annie who lost her husband a year ago, is struggling to raise her 2 small children and finds herself unable to move on after his death. So many times in romances, death and grief are glossed over and people get over it way too quickly. That was not the case in this book. Annie's doubts and struggle with overwhelming grief rang true to me. It was such a change to read a romance that dealt with this subj...more
Annie is a woman who has to come to terms with widowhood before she can possibly allow a new love into her life. Thom is a man who has conformed to this societal Mother's demands and must learn to become the man he wishes to be. I really enjoyed reading about these two growing and eventually finding the happiness they deserve.
I wanted to like this; I love supernatural romances. But this just wasn't good. The author writes in present tense which is jarring. Beyond that, while I'm good at suspending disbelief - you have to be for these books to work - this book pushed me too far. Example: the main character, a widow, is able to contact her dead husband by way of his cell phone, but she doesn't believe her children who say that Daddy has visited them. Please. I can imagine circumstances under which the protagonist would...more

Annie Harlowe is a widowed mother trying to survive. Thom Brannock is a millionaire stuck in a world of social snobs. An unlikely pair , but; when they meet the attraction is mutual. But, Annie made a promise to her husband that she'd never find anyone else and now he seems to be trying to contact her. This was a great, quick read. I like the way the author switches viewpoints so you know what both Annie and Thom are thinking. Both characters are appealing and you're really routing for them to...more
This book was what I wanted to read. I needed something light and sweet and this one hit the spot. It has just the right amount of romance and the right amount of cutely paranormal activity to keep me happy. I'll read more by Wendy Markham.
Having everything in the present tense is kind of annoying. I prefer 'She picked up her keys' to 'She picks up her keys.' I don't know why this bugs me, but it does. The story was cute.

Sweet, heartwarming story that hooks you right from the start. I was emotionally invested by page ten, and couldn't stop reading after that. Wonderful.
Nancy Luebke
It was funny, it was sad and it was so hard to put down, it almost got me into trouble with my husband.
This was a very quick read, similar to the great Nicholas Sparks' stories.
Enjoyed this book. Would like read this author again.
It was a good quick read but not suspenseful.
This book was cute -- predictable but cute!
Great book! Loved it, so super cute.
