I enjoyed this more than I wanted to, but too many things irritated me. This book was free, also, on Amazon, so I don't feel as let down by it.
The Bad: •Repetitive sentences. Sometimes in the same paragraph. It seemed Taylor (author) wanted to get across an idea, but forgot she said it the same way just 2 seconds ago. Happened often. •"Oh, look! This thing just happened! How strange!!! I bet this isn't important, I will brush it off," thing. This is one of my peeves when reading. It's like the author thinks they're tricking us into a twist that we can't see coming...when in actuality it's like seeing the plot device in the distance on the 15 fwy from L.A. to Las Vegas.
The Good: •Overall story was fun. Angels are a different topic for me to read about so it hasn't been overdone yet for me. •Liked Alex despite me hating when fictional men have "rippling abs" (oh, please) ;) •Enjoyed some of the descriptive writing....more

It is obvious what kind of story this is, and on that point, it delivered; however, I was slightly disappointed in the story because of its aforementioned coincidences that happened.
I would, however, recommend this book to those who enjoy this particular genre, because that was very good and well written. The story was simply fine; not amazing, but it did get you to care somewhat. ...more
Just as the stars say; it was okay. And I was glad I finished it.

It kept me interested enough to keep going, but I wouldn't have been upset if I lost the book mid-way.
It may be because these aren't my kind of books. I'm more into made-up fantasy or historical novels....which, speaking of the latter; I was more interested in that storyline in this book.
I liked the overall plot: The history was cool, the basic mystery was okay, and the ending was...ehh. I kind of guessed part of it, however, the last twist she pulls you through was so irritating because it was almost unguessable. I like it much more when authors give you subtle clues throughout, and when you finally figure out "whodunnit" you have that squinty-eyes-at-the-ceiling "Ahhhh!" moment.
Also, I liked how the romance wasn't in-your-face too much, however the dialogue was. Very one-liner-ish as well as too-romantic things a man would never say to a woman. I almost started laughing at some serious romantic parts because if I was told some of those things I would just laugh. Of course, it IS romantic, but if men say that stuff out loud it becomes silly and boyish.
