At eighteen, Sera Moore chose to go to culinary school while a higher power selected her to become an angel, specifically, an angel of death.
Now, twelve years later, Sera’s a successful baker during the day and performs her angelic duties at night. The only thing missing in her life is a man, but the last thing she wants is to fall head over wings in love. It seems her relationships are unable to survive once she reveals her nighttime activities, so it’s easier to not even bother.
But when a tenacious food critic won’t take a hint, can Sera lower her wings long enough to risk her heart one more time?
This was one great book! I haven’t really read any books that deal with earthbound angels and I really enjoyed this one. It’s a sweet and emotional journey and I could see everything play out in my mind as I read this book. I could hear the characters speak in my head and that too me is one factor if I like the author’s writing. This author has a way with words.
Sera and her best friend Cheryl are what you call earthbound Angels but each of them have a different purpose. It’s not easy being an Angel on earth and following the rules that you have to follow because if you break the rules, it’s not pretty. Sera is a baker and runs a bakery and when a food critic calls her food “banal” and all bets are off!
Destin is a food critic and he is good at what he does. When he reviews a local bakery, he doesn’t expect the repercussions of his review. Destin is in for the surprise of his life.
I laughed and cried all throughout this book! I loved the story between Destin and Sera. The author made me feel the emotions that both of these characters felt. If an author can evoke emotions from me while I am reading, then that is a really good author who knows how to write. I will be a fan of this particular author for a very long time.
Randi has spent her entire life writing in one form or another. In fact, if she wasn’t writing, she’d likely go completely and utterly insane. Her husband has learned to recognize when the voices are talking in her head and she needs some quality time with an empty Word file (the key to a successful marriage with a writer).
She lives with her husband, daughter, and four-legged children—all of which think they are people too.
A pop-culture junkie, she has been known to have entire conversations in movie quotes and/or song lyrics.
