    A Creative Romance Novel

    This book is extremely refreshing. Markham really knows how to make her romance novels stand out from the rest. 'Hello, It's Me' is not your usual boy-meets-girl, they fall in love and the rest is history book. It deals with trying to find oneself after the loss of a spouse, loving again after that loss and the supernatural. This book is a one-day read, you won't be able to put it down.

    really awful

    i couldn't make it past the first page of this book without thinking it was awful. no one should ever write fiction in present tense, nor should they constantly say the character's name- it is okay to use pronouns once in a while. annie says this and thomas thinks this. it was horrible. i skimmed through the rest of the pages and just put the book down, thankful i had only rented it from the library.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    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. <BR/><BR/>So Annie muddles through the days, attempting to get her daughter Trixie through the inexplicable night terrors that haunt her, trying her best to answer her son Milo's incessant questions of why daddy can't come home. And even though money is tight, the roof leaks, and her financial future is questionable, Annie spends money every month to keep Andre's cell phone in service-so that when she needs to, Annie can call the familiar number and hear her dead husband's voice, for what she always swears will be the last time. <BR/><BR/>Then the unimaginable happens, when during one phone call to listen to her husband's voice mail once again, he suddenly answers. "Hello." Just one word, but Annie knows immediately that it's Andre-that he's there, somewhere; that he loves her; that he misses his kids; that he's trying to tell her something about taking a catering job she has been offered. <BR/><BR/>So, she does it. Still reeling from what she knows wasn't a dream or a simple hallucination, Annie takes a job catering a party for Thomas Brannock IV, a wealthy man whose future has been mapped out by other people for as long as he can remember. But when emotions become involved, and Annie and Thomas seem to be heading toward a relationship beyond mere employer and employee, how will Annie handle that mystic phone connection with her dead husband, the love of her life? <BR/><BR/>HELLO, IT'S ME is a thought-provoking book about life and death-and how there are no boundaries when it comes to loving someone. Ms. Markham has done a wonderful job showing just how difficult it is to go from being part of a couple to a single parent, how death affects everyone it touches, and how, above all, there are miracles occurring every day-if we only know where to look.

    enjoyable paranormal contemporary romance

    Since Andre, her spouse of ten years passed away about a year ago, Annie Harlowe has hidden her need to grieve her loss because she knows she must remain strong for her two children six years old Milo and four years old Trixie. She brings in money by baking cookies for Merlin¿s Catering, but the bills are overwhelming. Her only self indulgence is keeping her husband¿s cell phone account so that she can hear his voice message and praying that one day he will come on with advice and encouragement, but that luxury will end shortly. Merlin offers Annie a chance to make some additional money by waitressing at the Braddock shindig. She was going to refuse until Andre tells her to go on the cell phone. At the gala she meets Thomas Brannock IV, who is very kind to her. Afterward he finds a wedding ring that he traces through Merlin to Annie. He begins seeing Annie although their class background makes a relationship seem impossible. However, neither expected a heavenly matchmaker to intercede as Andre wants the best for his beloved and that happens to be Thom. HELLO IT¿S ME is an enjoyable paranormal contemporary romance with the heavenly elements used to enhance a fine tale. The story line stars two likable adults from different walks of life falling in love. The secondary characters augment the lead couple by providing insight into their motives, especially families and friends or matchmakers. Though the kids seem too precocious readers will appreciate this matchmaking from beyond romance. Harriet Klausner
