Blurb from Goodreads:
Maggie Brock has everything under control. Even her divorce, though painful at the time, registers only as a minor blip in her carefully constructed universe. Her life in Prairie Oaks has once again returned to a smooth, predictable pace…until an angel shows up in her bedroom.
The angel is just as bewildered as Maggie about why he’s been sent to her, but their unsuccessful efforts to gain understanding of the mystery fade to the background as their relationship grows. Soon, Maggie’s biggest problem becomes the angel himself, as her feelings for him develop into something less than saintly.
While Maggie struggles to keep her desires pure, a nefarious being lurks in the shadows of Prairie Oaks, watching and waiting for the opportunity to fulfill his ambiguous purpose. Preying on her conflicted emotions, the demon manipulates her at every opportunity, but the one to deliver Maggie directly into his hands is the last person she’d expect.
All I can say is wow! What a great book. I loved the way it was about religion without being preachy and even had a little sex thrown in, which was kinky but still classy. What? People who go to church do have sex you know. The stork retired a loooong time ago 😉
Any way, that was the first thing I liked about it. But secondly, it’s also about relationships and marriage and even a little kids 101. All without being preachy. It was nice to have a normal woman (and thank God she was of normal age, did I tell you that? No teen superheroes here!) who had to deal with normal temptations. The story read very well to. Remember how the theme music from Jaws goes? Just a little stalkerish and then feeding frenzy!!! Well this was kind of how this story went. It was good from beginning to end. She was stalked and although you think you know who the good and bad guy is, you will still be surprised. I would totally recommend this read.
