Hearts Through Time by Marie Higgins

Hearts Through TimeHearts Through Time by Marie Higgins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A love story that transcends time . . .

When a woman claiming to be a ghost from 1912 appears in Nick Marshal¹s 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 doesn¹t need any more fireworks as he rebuilds his life. Still, he is intrigued by Abigail Carlisle¹s plea, and he needs clients, even if this one insists she¹s dead. The more secrets Nick uncovers, the deeper he falls for the beautiful ghost.

Abigail believes Nick is her heart¹s true desire, but how can happily-ever-after happen when she¹s 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 Abby¹s murder, but she doesn¹t 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 favorite genre is "time travel" and this novel didn't disappoint. It is the story of a twentieth century lawyer, Nick Marshall, who meets the love of his life -- but she's a ghost. She was told by her grandmother in 1912 that she would meet a man with the initials "N.M." who would help her. Nick investigates her case in the twentieth century and as he is doing so, he falls in love with her. After he returns a vital piece of evidence to her, she disappears and he travels back to 1912. Believe me, the things I've told you won't give the plot away. There are plenty of things to discover in this case. Some of them you can figure out, some are unexpected twists. The novel moved along very easily. Although I am very happy in the present, this novel made it seem possible to travel between times. It was a very clean romance, a little sappy at times, but not too much. There were plenty of characters to think about and they all had their little quirks and unique personalities. I won this book on the Leprechaun Hop & Giveaway Tour and I'm really glad I did.
