I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.

Please make sure to read the Acknowledgements.  I was one of those readers that always went right to the story and skipped anything that came before.  But once I became a blogger/reviewer, I found that it’s important to read everything that the author has written.  Sometimes you learn something you never knew about the author.  But in this case, you learn a little bit about how this book came about.

Elijah Smith is a man with a heavy heart.  You will see how much his pain consumes him.  Naomi Evans works at the town bakery and she has some scars of her own.  Michael Smith comes to town and he’s a man that knows about Elijah’s background.

 have to apologize to Shauna – when Naomi meets Eli for the first time, an M & M commercial immediately popped into my head:

The minute you read the scene you will understand.  And the scene gets even better – would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for that one.

As I read about Michael, I find that I want to know more about him.  This goes to show you that in this case, you need to read the first two books.  You don’t need to read the first two to understand this story but Michael is the connecting factor and he’s why I plan to go back and get the first two read before Shauna’s novella comes out on Valentine’s Day.

One good thing about this book is it’s about Elijah’s journey as a human.  Nothing in real life always runs smoothly so we shouldn’t expect all our heroes to not go through what we mere mortals go through.  And whose to say that a little competition can’t bring people closer together.  Sometimes people just need a little push.  And outward appearances aren’t always important.

Our author makes us believe that anything is possible.  Where is it written in stone what cupid is to look like or even how they are supposed to act?  This was one of those books that once I started to read; I just couldn’t put it down.  First it was one more sentence, then it was one more paragraph and then it was one more chapter.  Because of work, I was able to get this book read in just a couple of days.  This is an author I will continue to read what she puts out.  And I recommend that if you are someone that likes fantasies or love stories about angels, make sure to read this book.
