Thought for Today
Tell the readers a story! Because without a story, you are merely using
words to prove you can string them together in logical sentences.

I've always been a fan of Heather Moore's writing and her newest book, Heart of the Ocean has added another notch in favorites tally:-)
About the book
A dark secret . . . a grieving ghost . . . a handsome stranger . . .
What more could Eliza Robinson want? Except for maybe her life.
Heather B. Moore’s enthralling 1840’s historical romance, Heart of the
Ocean, Eliza Robinson has turned down the very pretentious Mr. Thomas
Beesley’s marriage proposal. As a business partner of Eliza’s father,
Thomas quickly discredits the family and brings disgrace to the Robinson
While her father scrambles to restore his good name in New
York City, Eliza flees to the remote Puritan town of Maybrook to stay
with her Aunt Maeve. Although relieved to be away from all- things-male
and unforgiving gossip columns, odd things start to happen to Eliza, and
she is plagued by a ghostly voice. Her aunt’s explanation? That Eliza
is being haunted by a woman who died of a broken heart twenty years ago.
Aunt Maeve is tragically killed, Eliza's life is put in danger as she
tries to uncover the mystery of her aunt's death. She encounters
Jonathan Porter in Maybrook, whose presence in the town seems
suspicious, yet she finds herself drawn to him. When she discovers that
Jonathan’s dark secrets may be the link between the dead woman who
haunts her and her aunt’s murderer, Eliza realizes that Jonathan is the
one man she should never trust.
This book has it all - romance, mystery and paranormal. I was drawn into the story from the beginning and found myself pressing a hand to my heart a few times, feeling a gamut of emotions for Eliza and constantly hoping for her resolutions and happily ever after with Jon. And I really loved that guy:-)
I have read a few historical novels here and there and usually enjoy them, but Heather's stories are always so well-written and the story lines so good, it usually isn't long before I read them again:-)
