Today, Tomorrow, Always, is an emotional romance with two extremely wondrous main characters. This story takes place in Heaven, New Hampshire, where the winter is frightfully cold and the O'Dowd women are remarkably valiant. This is the second book from the A Match Made in Heaven series, and it can be enjoyed as a standalone. However, book one, Dearly Beloved, is really good as well. Cathleen O'Dowd truly loves being a lawyer in the small town she grew up in. She is surrounded by her thoughtful sisters and her spry, 93-year-old grandmother. Cathy's love life is non-existent, thanks to a tragic romantic past and a very busy schedule. When author Mac Frayne comes into her life, she is able to find love once again. Mac has come to Heaven to write a biography about its founder, Josiah Heaven. Cathy is overjoyed to meet him, since he authored one of her favorite books. Mac's research requires access to the historical society's archives, and it so happens that Cathy is temporarily in charge of the precious documents. Due to a horrific tragedy, Mac has been alone for a while. So spending time with Cathy brings about a new friendship, which evolves into a raging passion. I truly liked this meaningful romance. Cathy and Mac are a hot couple, and their sexy times are steamy. The author, Peggy Jaeger, has created a unique balance of plot, passion, and personality. Overall, this is a romantic read with exciting and interesting characters. Although the ending was terrific, the omitted epilogue was a disappointment.

Cathy and Mac were an older couple, she almost 40 and he in his 40s and they weren’t looking for a serious relationship when they acted on their attraction to each other. They both had cheating lying spouses who were killed. He is bitter about lawyers after the teen who killed his wife and daughter texting while driving got off free and she is lawyer. I felt for her when her elderly dog died because I’m dealing with the end of life with mine right now too and trying to decide what’s best. This was a sexy romance with several sad and funny moments. Cathy’s matchmaking grandmother is a riot and I can’t wait to see what she does with her last single granddaughter Maureen.
