Heaven Beside You by Christa Maurice is a fun read. It’s the story of a rock star who turns up on a fan's doorstep after a failed affair. It’s a "What would happen if..." story. This title kept my interest and I liked the characters. The plot was also well thought out. I enjoyed the humor that wasn't overdone and the romance that was just steamy enough. Maurice’s style reminds me of Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I found Heaven Beside You to be an engrossing read and I'll give it a 5. I'd definitely read more from Christa Maurice.

Cassandra Geoffrey runs In The Pines Campground six months of the year and spends the other six alone on the West Virginia mountain. She isn't completely happy with the situation, but she loves her wacky, close-knit hometown, and the man of her dreams doesn't seem to be appearing.
Until he does.
Jason Callisto is the lead guitarist from Touchstone. Two years ago his supermodel girlfriend dumped him in People - in a side bar. Since then he's been impossible to live with. So much so that his manager exiles him to West Virginia before he breaks up the band on the eve of the Grammys.
Cass sees Jason as the adventure of a lifetime. Jason sees Cass as an ego boost.
Can they accept the risk to reach for more?
