Too short and flimsy to carry the weight of everything the author threw into the book. This romance could've done without all the drama, and I think the relationship between Laura and Bradley was hurried and under-developed, as a result.

In order to properly address the serious issues of substance abuse and recovery, post war stress and the emotional/psychological problems very young, orphaned children face, the book needed to be twice the length, at least.

I'm no expert but would've t

Mona Ingram is in my woman's group on Goodreads. This is the first book I've read by her.

I'm in 'aw' at the talent we have in our woman's group. (many great writers). All the books I've read have been enjoyable to say the least. Each different --each worth my time.

"Fallen Angel" was a 'feel-good' book!!!! [VERY SATISFYING] I read this book yesterday -- a chilly-windy day -- here in Northern California...(in one sitting). I was swept away into my little world with this wondrous little novel.

This story revolves around a nurse just recently discharged from rehab and a war veteran without a voice. Both have baggage and are determined to NOT get involved. Well,you know how long that lasts.There are some bumps and twists along the way of course.
Set in the wine country of Canada(I didn't know there was wine country in Canada) this was an engaging and very quick read. I enjoyed all the characters and plot moved right along.If you are in the mood for a light read, this is it.

But when tragedy touches her personally, she falls apart and accepts help in the form of pain killers. She becomes rapidly addicted, and her downward spiral is humiliating as well as life-changing.

F-18 fighter pilot Bradley
In this story Laura is approached by her family and friends about her prescription drug addiction and agrees to go to rehab. The rehab part of the books is very quick and it seems as if the author just didn't bother doing research so she didn't write about it. While in rehab, Laura meets Faith and after they are released from rehab they decide to go to a program that helps recovering addicts with a job and a stable and peaceful environment. This program is a winery and the girls jobs are to be c ...more

Addiction, divorce, trauma self discovery and just when it starts to come together the world explodes. A true vision through the eyes of people torn in different directions torn in pieces some lives seemingly destroyed while others thrive with the battle. A story of self discovery and a story of love a story of hope and triumph over demons and new beginnings. A terrific book very well written. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a heartwarming and uplifting read

Laura is an oncology pediatric nurse who succumbs to the grief of the job and becomes a prescription drug addict. Bradley is a fighter pilot who loses his voice due to the pyschological trauma he suffers after his accidental killings during friendly fire. Both arrive at the winery to heal and find that in the arms of each other. I loved the basic plotline but , with this being a mere 150 pages, I would have preferred more character and plot development. The ending seemed awfully rushed.

The development of the characters and storyline was so good that I did not question anything along this journey. Laura and Bradley have both gone through a lot, and they are cautious but they are drawn together. They seem to understand each other's pain. Halfway through the story it was obvious that they are kindred spirits. A very tender romance. I like the blue lagoon effect. This is the second book of the author that I have read and there is no doubt that I will read the rest of them.

Okay I was the director of admissions at a substance abuse facility so I am slanted in my view but I want to bang my head against the wall. Yes let's have a BARELY CLEAN ADDICT WORK AT A WINERY. I honestly don't think the author did her homework on this or she would have NEVER had that as a premise. I honestly couldn't get passed that ineptitude of the author for this book.

This was a good book. Short easy read. I liked how it portrayed two people who had difficult situations; however, I wish it was longer. I wanted more info from these characters and how their lives had evolved to the present. We had glimpses, but I would've liked more from them. Overall a good book

An okay book, though the plot felt quite unlikely - not to mention rushed -at times. I would have liked the story, as well as the characters, to have been more fleshed out.

The Kindle edition could do with some editing; there are some annoying typos.

All in all, a short, okay read.

A little too forced and a small partially descriptive sex scene.

This is a romance about a drug addicted nurse. A pretty good read. I like it when things work out in the end.

Romance between a recovering addict and literally dumbstruck fighter pilot--doesn't quite come together in the end, seems like it's trying to do too much in too short a book. 2.5 stars.

This was a great book. The characters were interesting and seemed to be real. The author did a magnificent job with the plot. I would recommend this book.
Cute storyline with a sad twist but a bit too graphic for my liking.
Enjoyed this romance story. Love the sexy hero Bradley. Full of emotions from the start to the end. Love the ending too.

Book actually surprised me kind of a bit unrealistic but then again that's why it's fictionlol

This was a freebie thru Amazon, so I figured, what the heck! I was enjoying the story, and then it was suddenly over! I expected a lot more story yet to come! Short but sweet.

This story started out well. I felt that once Bradley and Laura came together the story became rushed and then ended.
