Between Heaven and Earth (Power of the Matchmaker) by Michele Paige Holmes

Cassandra Webb’s every waking minute is devoted to being a great mother and wife. She takes five-year-old Noah to the library each week, volunteers in his kindergarten class, and even coaches his soccer team. She makes sure her husband’s uniforms are always laundered—even though he hasn’t worn them the last six years—always has his game day snacks on hand, and meets him for date night every Friday—which consists of one sided conversations at his bedside and watching his favorite take out remain untouched.

Pearl, a mysterious visitor at the care center, suggests that it is only Cassie’s love still tying Devon to Earth when he has been ready to move onto Heaven for quite some time. If Cassie will but open her eyes and heart, she will discover the path she should travel, one that will bring relief to Devon and much joy to her own life. But Cassie vowed never to give up on him. She never has and she can’t now, even after meeting hapless, single soccer-dad Matt.

Who thought up the idea of this Power of the Matchmaker series?!  Seriously? Brilliant idea.  I love this series.  Each month is a new book by a different author.  All with one minor character included- the matchmaker.  You can read these books in any order- they are meant to stand alone.  I would recommend that you read the prequel novella, Power of the Matchmaker, first though.  It will help you know the history behind the matchmaker, Pearl.

This book.  This one has a different kind of love story.  It's really not like any of the others so far.  I loved the growing friendship between Matt and Cassie.  They help and support each other.  It fills a void for both of them, especially since they both have young boys who need a lot of care and attention.  I loved the sense of family.

There is so much emotion in this book.  I felt Cassie's struggle and heartache and Matt's desperation and floundering.  As a reader, I wanted the best things to happen for them.  I was drawn into this book from the very beginning and it was hard to put it down.  I really liked it!  It is a fantastic addition to this series.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
