M here. Mario was kind enough to let me post this book review in his blog today as he has so many more readers than I have on my blog. It's true when we say "cats rule." They really do.
Heart For Rent, With An Option
by Karla Brandenburg
Michelle, a ghost writer, decides to return from Europe ahead of schedule, which presents a problem for the man she rented her house to. Keith’s mother is in a nursing home and not expected to live much longer. Michelle's house is very close to the nursing home where his mother is. Michelle has never met Keith, as his housing arrangements were handled by their mutual publicist. The publicist talks Michelle into letting Keith stay for a couple of weeks until his mother passes away. Michelle does not know that she has been ghost writing for Keith and Keith does not know Michelle is his ghost writer. Keith had made a couple of derogatory comments that he was not happy with the way his ghost writer had handled a couple of publications. Michelle relents and agrees they can share the house if it is temporary, assuming each would be out of the house for major parts of the day at their respective jobs.
Both Michelle and Keith feel a strong attraction to each other but talk themselves out of getting too close. Each has a sister with complicated problems. Neither sister is happy with Michelle and Keith's sharing a house. Family dynamics in this book run strong on each side.
While away on a book tour, Keith discovers secrets about Michelle that even she does not know, secrets that could put her life in jeopardy.
Keith's mother plays a strong role in Keith and Michelle's relationship, but you'll have to read the book to find out how.
This book is full of twists and turns to keep the reader interested. There were times I did not want to put the book down even tho I knew I had to.
I think you will enjoy the book. It is available for Kindles at Amazon.com and available for Nooks at Barnes and Noble and in paperback or hard cover at either store.
I hope you will give her book a try. i have read 4 of her books and enjoyed every one of them.
