Skye Sebring is a hospitality greeter inside the pearly gates of an unorthodox Heaven, where carefree and lusty angels get tipsy in the Live A Little Lounge, practice cloud art, and are guided by a brassy female deity who sounds and looks like Bette Midler. During the course of her duties, Skye meets lawyer Ryan Blaine, who has a brush with death due to a motorcycle accident.
It’s not Ryan’s time to die yet, so he returns back to Earth, but Skye can’t get him out of her mind. Why does Ryan seem so familiar to her and why does she feel an unexplainable attraction to him? She begins spying on Ryan’s life from her perch in heaven and even manages to follow him down to Earth. There she finds a world very different than Heaven, where drinking too much champagne results in hangovers, roses can prick fingers, and hearts are capable of being broken. All seems lost until she remembers that most of life’s lessons can be learned from the lyrics of five Beatles songs and one of the Fab Four’s songs might actually help win her the love of a lifetime.
Divinely Yours is a celestial romantic comedy about a love that crosses all dimensions.
Welcome to heaven! Skye Sebring is here to greet you to a heaven like you have probably never imagined. Where God looks like Bette Midler and her heaven seems more like Disney World than the great beyond. Skye has only been a greeter a short time. When one of her “clients” is pulled back to Earth because it wasn’t his time she just can’t forget him. “It happens” She has the ability to watch his movements down here and she feels remarkably drawn to him. I don’t want to say anymore because you have to read to book.
If you know me at all you know I lost my son to suicide in 2015 and heaven is on my mind every day. I had a little bit of trepidation about reading this story but by the end of chapter 1 I was all in. A romantic comedy that takes place in heaven and on Earth. I laughed, I cried, I got very upset at one character, and I was entirely entertained from start to finish. While heaven will always be a mystery to us still living, if heaven could really be like this I would know my son is well taken care of and happy.
The premise is fun, the characters are perfect and the setting is divinely celestial. A story of love that knows no bounds. An imaginative tale you will easily escape right into. Thank you Ms. Gillespie your story is a delightful read.

This book is the literary equivalent of an ensemble film like “Love Actually.” I really liked the story overall – it was a joy to see how each of the characters fit together as the full narrative unfolded.
