Présentation de l'éditeur

4.5 STAR, ROMANTIC TIMES TOP PICK and Winner of the Romance Reviews Today PERFECT TEN Award!!!

Originally published in 2004 by Warner Books (Warner Forever).

When nothing is as it seems,
all you can do is trust your heart...

On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, Meara O’Rourke can’t help but feel alone. With her last remaining relative newly buried and her potentially disastrous engagement freshly broken, she makes a resolution to begin her life anew--only to have an unexpected phone call turn her whole world upside down. Her biological mother Sheila, whom she met only once six years before, lies in critical condition in a nearby hospital. And though the woman once refused to see her daughter ever again--her last wish is just the opposite.

A few whispered words, and Sheila is gone. But the questions she has put into her daughter’s head, and the historic stone inn she has unknowingly bequeathed, sweep Meara up into the whirlwind of another life--and a legacy of deception. When Meara begins to have memories of a place she's never been, she realizes that while finding out the truth about her birth and adoption could answer all her questions--it could also tear her apart.

“A marvelous story that skillfully interweaves romance with the mystery...Claire makes each element of this terrific tale count.” June 2004 Top Pick -- Romantic Times Bookclub Magazine

“An absorbing family mystery…there's no denying that this story is suspenseful.”-- Publisher’s Weekly

"One of the best books I have read this year...An element of suspense runs through the pages, and the endearing tale builds to a crescendo of excitement and thrill while warming the heart. Meant To Be is a powerful story of love, healing, discovery and truth...I closed the covers wishing I could stay inside the green world of Meara and Fletcher's mountain. Ms. Claire has woven a tale that touched my soul and will live as a cherished keeper to read again and again. I am pleased to award MEANT TO BE our finest honor, RRT's Perfect 10" Perfect 10 Award -- Romance Reviews Today

"Intriguing and thought provoking...don't be surprised if you need a tissue or two along the way. Edie Claire has written another keeper." Rating: 9/10 -- Contemporary Romance Writers

“Edie Claire has a flair for creating a strong and suspenseful narrative that still contains satisfying elements of love and romance... the suspense which continues unabated through the length of the novel holds readers utterly captivated while the compelling story and growing romance tug at their heartstrings...richly imagined and very insightful, Meant To Be is destined for the keeper shelf." -- Road to Romance

“This very involving novel combines the best of suspense and romance...The revelations continue almost until the final pages, and will keep the reader thoroughly engrossed.” -- Romance Reader's Connection

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I couldn't put it down 11 mars 2007
Par K.Wagner - Publié sur
It took me about 5 short minutes to realize that this was going to be a terrific read. Not only did it tale place in a beautiful setting, but there was a warmth that suffused not only the characters, but the story itself.

Expect a surprise near the end, and expect to be disappointed that its over.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting premise.. 14 septembre 2004
Par skisno - Publié sur
This was a different, kind of creepy story. I was interested in the idea of looking for your birth parents and the possibility of encountering unsavory information. This was a satisfying book for that premise.

The story revolves around an inheritance shared with a man who turns out to be a love interest and a possible connection to the heroine's life before adoption.

I think the story and writing are good. Claire ties the story threads together quite capably for a mostly satisfying ending. Some threads are left hanging but I think that is due to some weakness in her character development. The characters were a little stiff and one-dimensional. I liked the Meara character but she didn't read like a real person. The inheritance that she shares with a brother and sister was a little implausible as was her immediate (like within 24 hours) friendship with the sister and love interest with the brother. Claire delved slighly into their characters but not enough for them to be more interesting. Although the brother was the love interest, he just comes across as a nice guy, almost too nice and too sensitive to be real.

All in all, with the main premise of seeking out your birth parents after adoption, the book succeeds. What Meara finds is interesting enough to hold your interest and keep you in suspense to the very end.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 engaging romantic with some suspense 26 mai 2004
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur
Just north of Pittsburgh, thirty year old schoolteacher Meara O'Rourke receives a phone call from a Laurel Mountain hospital stating that her mom was near death from a car accident. Meara informs the caller that her mom died a month ago after suffering from a long term illness. When the hospital administrator mentions Sheila Black, Meara realizes that the woman in the trauma center is her biological mother, whom she met once.
She arrives at the hospital where her mother warns her that Rosemary died before Sheila also passes away. Attorney David Falcon informs Meara that Sheila was married to Mitchell Black who died in the crash and that Rosemary was Mitchell's deceased first wife. She also learns that she inherited part ownership of an estate including the nineteenth century Sheepsworth Inn. Mitchell's angry son Fletcher displays hostility towards Meara. He wants her to leave and will buy her out. Instead a stubborn Meara who does not want any part of the estate refuses to sell because she believes he plans to destroy this pristine land. Meara learns more about her biological mother and Mitchell to the point that she loves him, but he remains nasty towards her, making her wonder if its time to leave while her heart still beats.
This is an engaging romantic with some suspense that occurs late in the novel. For the most part, the tale is more of a character study as Meara tries to understand her mother and Fletcher, which in turn enables the audience to better understand the lead female protagonist. Fans will appreciate this insightful tale though the intrigue comes towards the second half.

Buy it, download it, & enjoy every minute on the edge of your seat. I haven't read such a good book in a long time & I loved every minute of this book. it's an awesome story line, definitely had characters that you can rela r email with no matter what background you come from, & the way she writes puts you in the mindset that you feel that you are in the story with every page. I couldn't put this book down & am excited to continue reading more from her! she has quickly became my favorite author & this book will not disappoint. it's full of drama & heart stopping twists that have you guessing until the very last page. I was sad when the story ended because I wanted to continue reading more from her every day! I have downloaded more from her & I'm sure you will too after reading this amazing book! I can't give it enough stars to satisfy my recommendation for this book. Edit Claire has a pure & true talent & I can't wait for more!!
