I had more than a little problem with Jonah so willingly taking in a woman he doesn't know and allowing her to believe that they are husband and wife and that Jonah's infant daughter is her own. Being someone who has lost his wife in roughly the same time period as Jonah (she passed away four months ago, so the book's timeline encompasses this past month so to speak) I find his rebounding with another woman so soon to be an incredible stretch of human emotion (whether the marriage was troubled or not is irrelevant), but the fantasy aspect helped it go down a bit easier. If those elements had not been in the book I would not have been able to read it.
But as the story progressed it quickly drew me in. I found myself both wanting to know who Angel was and dreading the moment when she discovered the good intentioned lie she has been allowed to live. When the inevitable moment happens, it is nicely handled. I stayed up late to finish it and, when it was over, I didn't want it to be. Recommended.
Jonah wonders why his life is collapsing. His restaurant the BLUE MOON is failing and his infant is ailing. Now he finds sleeping in his restaurant's bathroom is a woman, who when he wakes her up claims amnesia. When "Angel" begins helping Katie, he does not throw her out. When she claims he is her spouse, he goes along for the ride for now. Soon he enlists the town to join in on his charade that he quickly wants to make real and permanent. However, what will happen to the growing love that they share when his Earth Angel regains her memory or someone recognizes her?
Though readers will just have to accept Jonah's illogical decision to not tell the truth to Angel, the story line is an amusing heavenly romantic suspense. The cast makes the plot hum, as readers will appreciate the lead couple, the caring townsfolk, the child, and the second chance at Angel wings for Geneva. Though the suspense subplot adds action and intrigue, it takes away from a fine matchmaking tale that fans of angelic romances will enjoy
