Review: Waiting For You by Marie Higgins

Do you like ghost stories? How about time travel?

I'm a huge fan of time travel stories--two of my favorite books are The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares--add to that a non-scary ghost story? Why not, right? Just a couple of the reasons to check out this book by Marie Higgins.

After reading Waiting for You, I'd have to say it's more in the realm of the Hallmark movie, The Love Letter, my all-time favorite time travel romance movie. Higgins' book is a sweet, clean romance that will take you away from your troubles, at least for a little while.

Here's the back cover blurb:
"When a beautiful woman claiming to be a ghost from 1912 appears in Nick Marshal’s new office and begs for help in solving her murder, he’s intrigued enough to consider her plea. A scandal that rocked Hollywood almost destroyed his law practice, so taking on a client who insists she’s dead seems a good way to refresh his career. The more history he uncovers, the deeper he falls for the ghost. Abigail Carlisle believes Nick is her heart’s true desire, but how can happily ever after happen when she’s already dead?"
Marie Higgins is quite the prolific writer. I'm amazed by the amount of work she is able to accomplish! I checked out her website to give you an idea of just how many novels she's published (under this name--can't even begin to add to that any of her pen names....), but I lost track counting. She's got Christian romances, Regencies, Colonials, Victorians, Christmas, Suspense, and obviously, Time Traveling. If you like romance, her website is the one you need to check out--there's got to be something there to tempt you!

Here's a link if you'd like to order a paperback or read it on your Kindle: Waiting For You (Ghosts / Time-Travel romance).
