Book Description

Fans of Nora Roberts, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Debbie Macomber will enjoy this romantic and emotional contemporary romance by award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author Barbara Freethy.

Joanna Wingate knows something is missing from her life, something she never dreamed she'd find in a handsome stranger's children -- mischievous six-year-old twin sisters who look up at her adoringly ... and call her "Mama."

Since his wife's accidental death, Michael Ashton has struggled with his many responsibilities as a single parent to twin daughters who, though they clearly love him, refuse to speak to him. Then he meets Rose and Lily's new teacher, and his emotions spin out of control. For Joanna Wingate is the mirror image of his late wife.

Bizarre coincidence, a strange destiny... or something altogether different has joined these four lives. The twins believe Mariah -- a magical fortune-teller in a crystal ball -- has the answers. But only Joanna and Michael's willingness to confront long-buried secrets can guide their families back to wholeness ... and unite them in a love that seems meant to be.

ASK MARIAH is a standalone full length novel of 100,000 words and was nominated for the RITA for BEST SINGLE TITLE CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE by Romance Writers of America!

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding story of family and love. 5 July 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a real big fan of lavyrle Spencer and Danielle Steele's writing styles, and it is rare that I find someone that compares to their talents. But this book is right up there with them!! I really enjoyed this story of family love and values. There were alot of things happening all of the way through the book to keep your curiosity peaked!! Ms. Freethy reels you into this story of family loyalty, betrayal, love and children. I love a book that can keep you turning pages even late at night!! I'm looking forward to reading her other two books, hoping that she brings another one out soon. A must read in my opinion!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 29 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a good idea it was offering one of Barbara Freethy`s books for free on Kindle. I enjoyed that one so much, I have bought more of her books.
"Ask Mariah" is a great story which I simply couldn`t put down. There are lots of charcters with storylines of their own which kept the story moving on nicely and there was romance and heartache galore before the final page.
I loved it and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys reading romances with a bit more substance than Mills and Boon.

As with every Barbara Freethy book I have read since I got a freebie of hers, this story keeps you enthralled from the first word to the last, You get drawn into the main characters' lives and spend time willing the two little girls to....... but you'll have to read it to find out! I would thoroughly recommend this book.

I have now read 7 of Barbara Freethy books and have found them all extremely good. She captures your imagination and you feel as if you are there with all the characters and places. I have enjoyed reading every one of her books which I have bought. If you want to loose yourself in a book then hers are the ones.

Another author who keeps you fully engrossed. You feel so sorry for the twins and wonder what the outcome will be for them. Also never quite the ending you expected.
I am reading more of this author`s books absolutely love them.
