Skye Sebring is a hospitality greeter inside the pearly gates of an unorthodox Heaven, where carefree and lusty angels get tipsy in the Live A Little Lounge, practice cloud art, and are guided by a brassy female deity who sounds and looks like Bette Midler.

During the course of her duties, Skye meets lawyer Ryan Blaine, who has a brush with death due to a motorcycle accident.

It's not Ryan's time to die yet, so he returns back to Earth, but Skye can't get him out of her mind. Why does Ryan seem so familiar to her and why does she feel an unexplainable attraction to him?

She begins spying on Ryan's life from her perch in heaven and even manages to follow him down to Earth. There she finds a world very different than Heaven, where drinking too much champagne results in hangovers, roses can prick fingers, and hearts are capable of being broken.

All seems lost until she remembers that most of life's lessons can be learned from the lyrics of five Beatles songs and one of the Fab Four's songs might actually help win her the love of a lifetime.

Pick up Divinely Yours. You'll adore this celestial romantic comedy about a love that crosses all dimensions.

Divinely Yours is such a unique idea for a book and unlike any I have read before. Most of this book takes place in Heaven, a place imagined by Gillespie that you have to experience to believe. You laugh, you cry, you sing Beatles songs, and your heartstrings definitely get a tug. The story is about Skye Sebring, whose heavenly job is to be a greeter to the newly dead, for, as you will see, Heaven is a very organized place. Her heavenly friends are wonderful, and Skye is especially compassionate with a young girl who died in a skateboard accident at age 13. Then she has a brief encounter with Ryan Blaine, who is suddenly whisked away from her greeting cubicle during orientation, and consequently turns her life upside down. Not all of the drama is happening on earth. With Ryan Blaine, just returned from his near-death experience, a Jane Doe in a coma in a nursing home and other people grieving the loss of loved ones, Heaven has its hands full. Thank goodness for guardian angels. I recommend this book as a touching read with very believable characters who take care of each other. I liked Karin Gillespie's take on Heaven as a pretty cool place to be and think you will too. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are solely my own.

Divinely Yours wasn’t what I was expecting at first, but what a fun quick read. Fans of tv’s The Good Place (before the twist!) will enjoy Skye Sebring’s job as greeter in heaven. You can even take monorail tour of the Supreme Being’s sector. What I really found interesting is how the story was woven together with Ryan, Susan and Emily’s lives on Earth. With a little help from a radio call in show hosted by Minerva and and old hits by the Beatles, Skye’s fascination with Ryan is fully explained in this charming story.

I found this book to be a nice, lighthearted read. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's images of Heaven. It was definitely a unique idea. A quick read which I really enjoyed. Thanks to Henery Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Dollycas’s Thoughts Welcome to heaven! Skye Sebring is here to greet you to a heaven like you have probably never imagined. Where God looks like Bette Midler and her heaven seems more like Disney World than the great beyond. Skye has only been a greeter a short time. When one of her “clients” is pulled back to Earth because it wasn’t his time she just can’t forget him. “It happens” She has the ability to watch his movements down here and she feels remarkably drawn to him. I don’t want to say anymore because you have to read to book. If you know me at all you know I lost my son to suicide in 2015 and heaven is on my mind every day. I had a little bit of trepidation about reading this story but by the end of chapter 1 I was all in. A romantic comedy that takes place in heaven and on Earth. I laughed, I cried, I got very upset at one character, and I was entirely entertained from start to finish. While heaven will always be a mystery to us still living, if heaven could really be like this I would know my son is well taken care of and happy. The premise is fun, the characters are perfect and the setting is divinely celestial. A story of love that knows no bounds. An imaginative tale you will easily escape right into. Thank you Ms. Gillespie your story is a delightful read.

This is a fun read, with a lot of emotional scenes. It seems a pretty straightforward story in the beginning, of a greeter in Heaven who meets someone in her office who then gets returned to Earth as it is not his time. Skye, the greeter, then gets a little obsessed with Ryan and watches him on Earthly Pleasures TV at every opportunity. At the same time, she is helping a teen girl, Chelsea, get acclimated to Heaven after her skateboarding accident. We also meet Ryan's wife, Susan, as well as several residents of a nursing home, including Emily, who has been in a coma for over a year and is beginning to wake up. I love the way Ms. Gillespie ties all of these stories together for us and makes us care about so many of the characters. There are humorous exchanges between the characters in Heaven and heartbreaking ones between the characters on Earth. There is also a character or two that you will love to hate! If you enjoy love stories with a touch of the paranormal, this is a definite must read!

LIVES are intertwined and LOVE is everlasting! Heaven according to Karin Gillespie is just another plane that is a celestial wonderland of peace, getting everything you want when you want it, and just everyday joy. Heaven dwellers are able to voyeur Earth happening, find out about future and past lives, and usher newly deceased into their flock. At first there seemed to be a group of characters that were introduced in the book in a random and unrelated way. But eventually Gillespie made clear how life paths intersect and affect each others destiny. Instead of bible verses and stringent advise; guide lines were suggested through the use of song lyrics from well known groups like the Beatles. Readers with an interest or who lived though the 70's will enjoy this aspect of the book. Teens and Adults will enjoy this. "A copy of this book was provided by Henery Press via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

Skye is a greeter inside the pearly gates, it's her job to introduce you to heaven and help you acclimate. While doing her duties she briefly meets Ryan Blaine, to whom she can't seem to get off of her mind. What is so special about this man and why does he continue to invade her thoughts. When she learns that she is about to be sent to earth for the first time she doesn't think she is ready and wonders why she was chosen. This book touched my heart from the beginning and had me believing in miracles by the end. It was truly a heavenly read and I'm glad I was given the opportunity to read it. I look forward to picking up more books from this author, if they are anything like this one I'm sure to fall in love.
