    One thought on “Almost Heaven”

    1. I absolutely LOVE this book! This is what I posted at the RF () when I read it for the 1st time, and I'm simply copying my post here on GR because I'm lazy and don't feel like writing a full reviewWell, I've just finished reading Almost Heaven and I'm glad to say that I'm in love with Ian, Elizabeth, and everyone and everything else in the book. :) I especially loved Ian for having no fear admitting to himself he was in love with Elizabeth without knowing if she felt the same, and I adored Eliza [...]

    2. 5 SOLID STARS ★★★★★[image error]“Because,” he said quietly as she stood up, “until you walked into it, this was an ordinary garden.”Puzzled, Elizabeth tipped her head. “What is it now?” “Heaven.” And… once again, I am SPEECHLESS!!! Words just can not express the love I have for Judith McNaught and her incredible books. And with such appropriate titles. Every time I finish one, I want to flip back to the beginning and read it all over again. I am convinced that NO ONE [...]

    3. Another re-read. Another hit. Seriously, Ms McNaught is the Queen of Historical fiction well in this series anyway. I do think she left the best 'til last, even though I did love the first two in the series also. Ian. Ian, Ian, Ian I think I loved Ian more than Jordon and Jason (although while I was reading about them, I was totally in love with them) - maybe it is because Ian is a Commoner and he is Scottish, well, half-Scottish. I do love Scotland. I have already reviewed the book on first [...]

    4. There’s been many books I can say I couldn’t put down, but I can truly say there’s also been just a handful of books where it was sometimes physical impossible to stop reading, and putting the book away. Almost Heaven by Judith McNaught was one of those books. Through the hardships,tears and yes, misunderstandings I couldn’t put this book down, I wanted, no needed to keep reading to find out what happen next to these two amazing leads. Elizabeth Cameron was one of those heroine’s you l [...]

    5. I'm pretty sure - but not positive - that Judith McNaught is actually a god-like being who writes romance from the sky, just for me. Now, maybe that's a little presumptuous of me, but eh, how else could she know how to make me love every one of her books? You have another idea? Didn't think so. Just like Whitney, My Love or A Kingdom of Dreams, Almost Heaven is deeply developed, with dimensional characters full of sizzling chemistry - whose romance grows on you until it burns into your heart. Th [...]

    6. Going back to other books I've read from this author I feel like I'm still holding grudges against Clayton, Jason, and Jordan. Their actions against their partners were horrible. I found them way too ruthless but their stories were compelling enough to enthrall me to the very end. Almost Heaven is a long book, 475 pages long, and I stopped reading it at page 370. The writing, as always with McNaught, was brilliant, and even though I found Elizabeth's character (unlike other McNaught's more inter [...]

    7. It's very typical Judith McNaught, still very different from the rest of her books. Ian for instance isn't English, but 'brutal Scot' and just because he's Scot seemed like McNaught saved all of her best words and emotions for this man. But like in most of her books, her dialogues are so beautifully written that are you pulled into her world, with this book even more because English ton doesn't approve showing public emotions, Ian approves them very much. Dialogues between him and Elisabeth who [...]

    8. I needed an escape read/ go-to the other week, so I went straight to Dame McNaught. I’m sad that she doesn’t write any more, but her oldies still do it for me. (although rumor has it… 2017?) It’s been awhile since I read Ian and Elizabeth’s story, but the first sentence reeled me back in. There is something to be said about that. Elizabeth, The Countess of Havenhurst, is practically destitute, despite her title. But she’s okay with that. She loves managing the estate, which she’s h [...]

    9. Absolutely one of the most emotionally satisfying endings and epilogue in a historical romance (for me anyway).I wish there where more books/authors that gave as much detail, closure, emotion to the ending of a love story's like JM. Loved Ian and Elizabeth and their love story, so touching, moving, sad, affecting and poignant!!!!

    10. The story immediately sucked me in. It was intriguing and interesting and it got me curious about her and about him, and why her uncle was sending out letters to all 15 men who had offered for her. That part was well told and hooked me, and 1st pages rarely interest me as much. Then we get to the men themselves, and 1 is aging and has nvr ben married but is with his whore, and details like that just go hand in hand with Judith McNaught. This is why I didn’t want to read her novels, bcuz of the [...]

    11. GREAT BOOK!I got so caught up in this book! I couldn't put it down! My husband even made the comment, "You're gonna be reading that one all day, I can tell." lolIt was a wonderful story. My heart was hurting, beating, crying, and shouting for joy! hahahaThanks Judith McNaught for creating another 5 star story.

    12. Judith McNaught is an excellent writer and one of my favourites. No one writes romance like she does but. I decided to stop being biased and vent a little. After reading four Judith McNaught books I'm quite tired of the similar plots and characters she has in every book. It's the same characters with the same misunderstandings and same stupidity and the same sex scenes. The simiar sex scenes are a little creepy sometimes. For example, everytime the hero's fingers go near the 'triangle' every her [...]

    13. I loved the heroine so much I actually cried when Ian told her why he wanted a solicitor.I got sniffy about a book.I really did.Weird!I can not write a rew without it having spoils because i just want to rant on and on about all the things that happened.II'm so in love with this book it hurts me that i finished it.GodJustad it,ok?One word about the plot and it would be one word too many.Soad it.:snif:

    14. The scene in the courtroom is a classic. McNaught is one of my favorite historical authors because she combines heart-wrenching emotion and subtle humor in all her books. This also contains one of my long-time favorite themes: the misunderstood heroine before whom the hero has to grovel when he realizes how badly he misjudged her.

    15. I'm not keen on romance novels. They are more of a filler to me when I'm too preoccupied to commit to reading. Maybe it's the repetitive plots or the all too familiar faces and personalities, they all seem to blend together and numb me. Well, not this book. It's not the first Judith McNaught book I read, but it's the first that had me glued to the pages. After reading it all night and finishing it, I started to re-read it the next day, and that had not been my expectation at all.What really hook [...]

    16. This is my all time favorite Judith McNaught novel! It is about two characters that are initially very attracted to one another, but make some serious mistakes. Elizabeth is set up by her friends and ends up being outcast from society. Ian believes she purposely tries to trap him into marriage so he leaves her in ruin. Years later, Elizabeth is forced to pick a suitor by her uncle. She believes that Ian has offered for her, so she ends up at his residence in Scotland. It is during that trip that [...]

    17. gamzeninkitapdunyasi.Yazarın öyle harika bir kalemi var ki Yarattığı karakterlere hayat dokunuşu yaparken öyle etkileyici şeyler ortaya çıkarıyor kiKitabı okuyalı uzun zaman oldu. Maalesef eskisi gibi okuduğum andan sonra yorum giremiyorum. Ancak kitabı sanki daha dün okumuşum gibi hatırlıyorum. Beni çok etkilemişti.Zaten dönem kitaplarını acayip seviyorum. Özellikle de beni zamanda yolculuğa çıkarabilecek, o dönemde yaşıyormuşum hissini yansıtan kalemleri daha d [...]

    18. I have too many feelings after reading this book which is a wonderful thing but my review will be all over the place as a result. I pulled an all nighter and almost missed my flight because I didn't want to put this down to pack my bag. I really loved Elizabeth's character innocent and strong, forgiving but not a push overher character showed true growthd although there were a few moments when I wanted to shake her for her gullibility.I realized I can't dislike her for the very traits that make [...]

    19. Hmmmm.It was very well written book, but even this could not stop me from feeling displeasure.I had so much dislike for the "Hero"he was cold, cruel and dispassionate for the majority of the book and his own hypocrisy got on my nerves!!!He was accusing her for being a woman of ill repute and a whore, but himself was indulging in debouchery sexual escapades with questionable womeneven his friend pointed that out“Can’t say as I ever noticed you took the petticoat set in aversion,” he remarke [...]

    20. I am hopelessly in love with Ian! Elizabeth was amazing too, although what she did was horrible. To put my poor Ian through all that! Anyway you could feel their love, and they did make a great couple. I liked seeing Alexandra, Jordan and the Dowager again too. It was nice knowing how they were fairing. Seriously these HR's are so good! I want to read all of them now lol. Any suggestions which one I should read next?

    21. The heady story of Elizabeth Cameron and Ian Thornton which captivates you from the very beginning.An absolute favorite of my sister's this is a historical that is very much worth your time - if you haven't already read it.

    22. My pet peeve with Judith McNaught has been the overuse of The Great Big Misunderstandings that drive her lovers apart for no apparent reason other than a sudden complete breakdown of communication and actions completely contradictory to their characterizations up to that point in the story. Yet I have gritted my teeth and read through it to the inevitable HEA ending because she always put those obstacles towards the end, after I had already fallen in love with het characters, laughed and cried w [...]

    23. Judith McNaught's books were finally made available in digital format so I snapped up a few of my favorites. I have frequently reread her stories, but they're now packed away in a box in the garage, so it's been a while. I was thrilled to get them on my Kindle. I started my McNaught-a-thon with Something Wonderful. I noticed some weird conversion typos. Then I moved on to this one. Goodness! The conversion typos were all over the place! Very sloppy of the publisher. Shoddy work.Some of them incl [...]

    24. I'm not very fond of big misunderstandings, or of keeping information to him/herself, but here it was really, really very well done!This book make me like things that usually I hate! :DEverything that has been happening to Ian and Elizabeth was so well described and explained that I was in awe! I loved Ian with his inflexibility, with his brilliant mind, with his ability to put himself into his adversary's mind. I loved him for his passionate, sweet, total love for Elizabeth. For only love like [...]

    25. Almost Heaven.Just as for me this story turn out to be something beyond my expectation. I felt in love with both Ian and Elizabeth the love chemistry between them, really light up this story. I must said this the misunderstanding issued between them in a few first chapter is really frustrating and I almost give up. I’m we’re about to put this book down and I’ll talk to Ririn, this story is not as simple as A Kingdom of Dreams (my JM most favorite book so far).She told me to keep on reading [...]

    26. I'm not keen on romance novels Now, that was a lie!!! I am total sucker on historical romance.Almost Heaven. This novel was completely Almost Heaven!!! I adore Ian and his love toward Elizabeth - and she completely drown me crazy sometimes. How could she be so smart, and yet so stupid?But, all was well - let just say that I loved this story most of all "Sequels" books.Too many sighs, and well everything ;)Great recommendations :D

    27. E cresceu em mim um desejo insaciável de terminar esta história E depois de terminar ficou o vazio . Este terceiro livro lido desta autora só demonstra que a escrita dela tem evoluído . Livro muito bom . Já anseio pelo próximo desta escritora fantástica
