Overview

In Heather B. Moore's enthralling 1840s 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 name.

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.

After 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.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Maureen Timerman
A riveting read of 1830's in New England. We live among the early Puritan settlers, and experience some of what it was like to come on the Mayflower! Somehow they had managed to keep a lot of their ways of life, while some of the country has been prospering and changing. Eliza Robinson has grown up in a privileged life in NYC. Once you start on this book, you will not be able to put it down...you need to know the ending. I so enjoyed this!!
Goodreads - Mindy Holt
Very well written, of course, it's by Heather! But I really enjoyed the mix of romance, a ghost story, heart pounding suspense, with very strong characters.
Amazon - Cami Checketts
Heart of the Ocean is exactly the kind of book I love to read: romance, suspense, family drama, just a touch of paranormal. It is a very enjoyable clean romance. My only gripe: I wanted more of Jonathon and Eliza together. Loved, loved, loved their interactions. Oh, and twist at the end was completely unexpected. Love that too!

I would recommend this book to all who enjoy clean historical romance.
Amazon - Nancy Wudel
I am NOT into paranormal books, but this isn't what it seems! Not at all. LOVED THIS BOOK! Heather Moore's writing style is terrific - intelligent, descriptive, and captivating. This book has it all - romance, mystery, intrigue, humor, and the perfect, relaxing escape. Loved the descriptions of Eliza's travels and the touches of historical fiction.
Amazon - Jewel Adams
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:-)
