Format: Paperback
The Angelic Council has made a slight miscalculation. Lieutenant Danvers was supposed to die that day in Vietnam. They did not anticipate Daphne to interfere and end up dying in his place. On these very rare instances the newly deceased simply enters heaven early; however, Daphne insists that Leonard (the angel informing her of the Council’s error) go tell the Council to fix the problem and send her back. Returning to her past life is already impossible, but the Council does decide to allow Daphne to return and take over the life and body of another female due to arrive shortly. They only ask that Daphne do them one small favor.

Nathaniel Danvers is CEO of Danvers and Son, a leading department store chain in sixteen states and three countries. He has no idea how the beautiful lady managed to enter his office, much less the building, but he wants her gone. He does not believe in the guardian angel she claims is with her invisibly or anything else that he cannot see, feel, taste, or hear. Yet somehow the silent alarm does not summon help, the doors refuse to open, and he is being forced to watch his life story.

Daphne returns on Christmas Eve, several years after her early death. She has until the end of the night to help the son of Lieutenant Danvers change his ways or he will not make it to heaven. (It had been Nat’s mother who had asked the Heavenly Council for help.) So here Daphne is, paying an after-hours visit to Nat’s office. With Leonard giving flashes of Nat’s past, present, and future on various gadgets she has never seen before, Daphne is about to play Ghost to his Scrooge.

**** FOUR STARS! You do not have to be a fan of the classic tale A Christmas Story to enjoy this delightful romp (but it sure helps.

This has been done before, however it's a nice take on an old theme. Enjoyable read for those who can suspend cynicism.

HASH(0x91cc1ee8) out of 5 stars From "Red Adept Reviews" 23 Jan. 2011
By Lynn McNamee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Plot/Storyline: 5 Stars

If you enjoy romance along with a twist on a classic tale, you won't go wrong with this modern-day interpretation of Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Daphne, a young woman who has lost her life before her time, must help Nathaniel, a Scrooge-like businessman, find his Christmas spirit.

Most of the story takes place in Nathaniel's office. Daphne uses various accoutrements to play the parts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. In between these visions, Nathaniel and Daphne fall in love. However, they can't be together because Daphne only has a few hours in her current body, then must choose another.

There was a relative of Nathaniel who is the "Tiny Tim" of this story, but I can't tell more so that it can remain a surprise. The Bob Cratchitt of this story is a humorous revelation.

My only complaint about the book was the rather long, detailed sex scene in the middle. The story was too cute and family friendly to contain it. There was a lot of innuendo leading up to it, so it wasn't the act that surprised so much as the several pages of detail in which it was described. However, I do know that it is expected in a lot of romances, so I won't take any points off for it.

Whenever I read Dickens' A Christmas Carol, or see a movie based on it, I always, always cry at the end when Scrooge goes around giving everyone presents. This novel had the same effect on me. I think, in some ways, it tugged even harder on the heart strings because of some complete strangers that Nathaniel finds out about.

The ending? Well, all I can say is, "God bless us, every one."

Characters: 5 Stars

Nathaniel was a great Scrooge. He reminded me more of Bill Murray in Scrooged than the one created by Dickens. All of the scenes from Christmases past and present provided plenty of insight to give his character depth and understanding from the reader.

Daphne was less well developed, but equally interesting. Most important, the two characters played well off of each other. There was a good mix of chemistry for a believable love affair.

Writing Style: 5 Stars

The writing style was pretty straightforward without a lot of bells and whistles, i.e. long, drawn-out descriptions. It made for a fun, easy read, which is just what I want in a holiday novel. The dialogue was exceptionally well done, especially for a romance. One of my turn-offs in romance novels is the cheesy things the characters say to each other. That wasn't found here. Sure, there was some lovey-dovey stuff said, but it didn't go off the deep end into abject corniness.

HASH(0x9fd03af8) out of 5 stars Just a bit too absurd 1 July 2011
By Too Critical? - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
**Possible Spoiler Alert**

I'm as big a fan of paranormal romance or fantasy as anyone else out there, but this book just didn't cut it for me. I'm quite used to suspending disbelief for the sake of a good story, but Angel Be Good just asked too much of me. I love a good bit of fluff, but was exasperated by this one. How many times can someone say they have "just a few hours left" in one night? And there is something just creepy about having a sex scene in the same book that has an Angelic Council in heaven. The part about the female protagonist having been returned to earth 30 years in the future and not understanding modern technology also seemed like it was thrown in just for the sake of a twist. I'd like to be able to comment additionally on some parts of the book I did like, but honestly, I just can't think of any.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

HASH(0x919a4180) out of 5 stars Miracles Happen--Especially When You're Not Expecting Them 8 Dec. 2010
By Picky Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you need a reminder that miracles happen and divine intervention is actually at work in everyday average lives, read Angel Be Good. I read it in one sitting. Expect the unexpected, and believe in the power of love. This author also wrote Hot Flash, awarded as one of the top 10 romances of the year, and Diary of a Confessions Queen.

HASH(0x919a4318) out of 5 stars Angel Be Not So Good 29 Dec. 2011
By bibliophile2011 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I realize that when downloading this novella it was going to be...fluffy, so I don't want to knock it down in points for not being intellectually stimulating however I do expect decent plot development and believable chemistry. Nathanial Danvers is a modern day Scrooge and Daphne is the (reluctant and recently dead) Angel sent to make him see the error in his ways. Daphne is expected to do this in 24 hours just like the Charles Dickens tale, however none of the three ghosts had sex with Scrooge within the first 24 hours so I guess the timeframe and the bah-humbug attitude are the only similarities. Not once in the entire story did I feel that there was any real chemistry. I pictured Daphne snapping gum and saying groovy the whole time while crusty Nat just leeringly undressed her with his eyes...this somehow was to build up to a kind of love ever-after that would allow second chances for Daphne and Nat. Really? The unnecessary sex scene was also stale and blah and did not fit into the story at all, very...random...Is she an Angel or a succubus? Not buying it. Found the dialog trite, the plot stale and underdeveloped. However I gave it a two star- I did not hate it but I would not recommend it.

HASH(0x9224d4f8) out of 5 stars Corny retelling of a traditional Chistmas Story 21 Aug. 2011
By familyfirst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I went into this book without high expectations and without reading any preview. All I knew is that is was a Christmas story.

It is basically a re-telling/re-forming of It's a Wonderful Life with a large splash of the Scrooge story like. As such it was rather predictable and you knew exactly where the character would end up, sadly without any twist or turns. The romance (if you want to call it that) between the two main characters, while predictable, it was not believable as a life altering finding of True Love. It was more a young teen mistaking lust as true love.

If you want a quick, light, fluffy read that is set in the Christmas season, this book will do the trick.

I received a copy of this book in return for my review.
