What would it be like to have heaven enough?
For just a few, brief days on the Pacific Crest Trail, Matt Murphy knew. He fell in love, faced his true self, and came to understand what was really important in life – until the woman he fell in love with died and his life was cast into the chaotic emptiness of grief. Within that emptiness, Matt lost his wealth, his job, and everything that helped his life make sense.
Matt believed he could accept that if it really was the price of true love… Until he learned that the woman he loved had already been married.
Where that left him and what it meant for the love he thought they shared, Matt couldn’t know. His only recourse would be to meet the man who had married his love and understand what that love had meant to him. How could he have lost her? How could he have pushed her aside? How could he have given her up when losing her broke so much of what was left of Matt’s heart?
Matt is going to have to find out. Even if it means blundering through another relationship, driving into a lake, just a bit of kidnapping, and possibly facing the kind of man he really is, was, and always will be.
The results of which could change Matt’s life forever…

This is the 2nd book I've read written Ken La Salle; he has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of his books. The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book. I loved the characters. I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.
Matt's story is an emotional one as he deals with his grief and finding out about his wife's secret life before him. I felt for him and everything he's gone through and his need to know more. This book really took me on an emotional ride and pulled on my heartstrings. This well-written book really got me thinking about life, the journeys we all take, people we meet along the way and how their stories affect ours. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author in the future.
Matt has not lost one wife, but two, taken before their time. Heaven Denied is a look into his psyche to see how one person deals with grief, the desperation of loss and the need to know…. Ken La Salle has a way of digging deep into my mind, raising questions and making me wonder what I would do. How would I handle the loss of someone so important to me that I cannot let them go. He gets inside my head, scrambling all my perceptions to the point where I get Matt’s motivation, his need to do something. Matt needs…I don’t think he knows what he needs and I love that his mother is by his side as he searches. And Eric? Is he just along for the ride? Ken La Salle walks his own line, as do his characters, and that shines through in his writing. They muddle through life, like the rest of us, looking for love and happiness. I love that his books do more than entertain me, they make me think, to read between the lines, to look into myself and ask the hard questions. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Heaven Denied by Ken La Salle.
