Overview

Because love can happen anywhere . . .
Even in New Jersey!

A beautiful morning in early spring. What could possibly go wrong?

Just returned from a buying trip in England, Kate French was jet-lagged and exhausted and running on fumes. She was already running late for an appointment but a wave of dizziness forced her to pull into the shopping mall parking lot in search of a quick fix of caffeine and protein.

When the pain first hit, she ignored it and continued racing across the parking lot toward the food court. But within moments she realized something was terribly wrong as her wobbly legs gave out and she dropped to the ground. The last thing she remembered as she started to fade away was the guy in the Grateful Dead T-shirt who held her in his arms and promised he'd never let her go.

Mark Kerry didn't think of himself as a hero but the story of a Good Samaritan who had saved a woman's life in the parking lot of the Princeton Promenade was attaining the status of suburban legend. Determined to return a stack of documents that had been left behind when the ambulance swept her away, he called in some favors and tracked her down at home one week later.

The moment Kate saw him, the world and everyone in it disappeared. She knew his voice, the smell of his skin, the way his hands felt against her skin, the taste of his mouth, everything that mattered. All the things she would ever need to know about him.

And then she took another look . . .

PRAISE FOR JUST LIKE HEAVEN

*TOP PICK!* Bretton's lyrical writing enthralls from the first page as she immerses readers in a tale of romance and new beginnings.
--Romantic Times

Bretton has few peers among contemporary romance novelists when it comes to combining escapist romance with everyday, messy reality. She’ll make you believe that love can happen anywhere – or make you grateful that you’ve been fortunate enough to find it.
--Susan Scribner, The Romance Reader

This one will keep you reading past your bedtime.
--Elizabeth Darrach, BellaOnline

*STARRED REVIEW* Very few romance writers create characters as well developed and realistic as Bretton's. Her books pull you in and don't let you leave until the last word is read.

Amazon - Tracy Vest
Bretton's latest is a great romantic comedy, which refreshingly features mature protagonists. The story is breezy, funny, and charming -- a real surprise.

Meet the Author

From Barbara Bretton:

Readers are everything.

Seeing your name in print is terrific. Good reviews put a smile on an author's face.

But the absolute best thing about being a writer is being read. Knowing that your words are making someone you're not even related to happy. Knowing that your story is helping to make a bad day better for a stranger who needed to escape for a few hours. Knowing that the imaginary friends you've spent the last few months with are out there in the world becoming just as real to a reader you'll never meet, but know and love just the same.

See what I mean?

Readers are everything.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there. And, if you're new to my work, welcome. I hope you'll read a few of my other titles and let me know what you think. You can always reach me on Facebook or Twitter as barbarabretton or directly through my website www.barbarabretton.com
Happy reading!

    Loved it!

    I always know that when I open a Barbara Bretton book, I'm in for a great read. She never disappoints. Her books are fun and funny and touching and real. Her characters are smart and sassy and vulnerable and prone to the life crises we all experience. It doesn't get any better than that.

    exhilarating contemporary romance

    In Princeton, New Jersey fortyish antiques store owner Kate French suddenly feels immense chest pains and collapses in a parking lot. She lies on the ground where any passerby can see her red thong underwear, an item that the normally straight-laced single mom of an adult daughter would never be caught dead wearing. A Deadhead wearing a Grateful Dead T-shirt administers CPR saving her life until the ambulance arrives to take her to the hospital. Kate wants to thank her hero while her hero Mark Kerry wants to insure she is okay especially since his thoughts linger on the red thong though he knows how inappropriate that is. When Mark and Kate meet sparks fly although neither of the forty something pair expected to fall in love. --- This is an exhilarating contemporary romance that is much deeper than the brief description above as Barbara Bretton explores multiple relationships, besides that of the lead couple. The cast drives the terrific story line as the protagonists and the secondary players seem so filled with life. Subgenre fans will want to read this delightful Jersey romance enhanced by Kate¿s daughter who wants the best for her mom, but fears being left out in the cold if that becomes Mark. --- Harriet Klausner

    I love Barbara Bretton's way of looking at life, always a happy ending and not too far a road to get there. Her latest 'Just LIke Heavan' is no exception. This book has it all from belly laughing to tears. I loved it.
