Feels Like Heaven

Solomon Harris, a Los Angeles attorney frustrated with a lying client, is summoned to Charlotte, NC, to meet with David Davidson, his biological father. Davidson, a megachurch preacher with a congregation 10,000 strong, is recovering from a heart attack and wants to make right with his illegitimate son. Solomon couldn't care less about this preacher man who was absent while Solomon was growing up. Miller (Could This be Love; His Love Walk) is adept at setting the stage for romance draped with strong Christian themes. When Solomon arrives at his father's bedside, he's immediately smitten with Davidson's goddaughter Dr. Larissa Wilkinson. Old timers would say Solomon and Larissa are sparkin' but before their love can blossom, Solomon has to dig into who is extorting his father's fortune. There's a touch of mystery as lots of shady folks—including family members—would love to have their grubby hands on Davidson's $20 million. Can love emerge from this betrayal? If it's up to Larissa it will. She thinks Solomon is dreamy and gorgeous but also spiteful and mean, which are all traditional touchstones for a fine romance.
VERDICT Miller's slim volume is a charming tale with a fine mix of villains and heroes. Fans of inspirational romance will thrill at strong themes of forgiveness and love for family as this story is so sweet it should come with a cherry on top. Recommended for all romance collections.
