Product Description

About the Author

Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California). Her writing career began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightening bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn't stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm. When she's not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. She currently (still) resides in the big shake (although her southern roots are calling her home) with her husband, daughter, and their two peculiar dogs, Boudreaux and Tabasco (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent). For lagniappe (a little extra), a virtual cup of café au lait and beignets, please visit Annie's website: www.annierosewelch.com She can also be found on Facebook & Twitter.

HASH(0x96c9a00c) out of 5 stars Another Beautiful Story!! 2 Sept. 2014
By Stephanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Well, Annie Rose Welch does it again! Every book in this series just gets better and better! This book ties everything up with a wonderful big bow! Raphael and Catalina's story is both beautiful and heart-breaking.

I've fallen in love, Mama. Her name is Catalina and she runs through my veins just as the salty seawater. If the ship was my home all those years, she is my forever shore to drop my anchor.

And OMG, Ms. Welch, you made me laugh so hard, I cried!

"Now, let's just wait a minute. Let's just wait one grape pickin' minute," he gravels. "We have no smoke, no burning bread, no profanities in Italian, no pizza pelting, no flies crapping on the food, no potatoes --" He scrunches his nose, almost like a rabbit. "What's going on here?"

And FINALLY!! Eva and Gabriel meet!

"The story is --" she pauses again, this time longer "--it's my own story. It's part of yours. It's partially ours. I've had dreams of you....all of my life. I always knew you would be with me someday, somehow. I guess fate chose today. The good that came from my bad was you, Gabriel."

I loved this book!! And I cannot wait to see what the final book in this wonderful series brings! These characters are so full of life and the writing is descriptively beautiful! I cannot recommend this series enough. You will not be disappointed!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0x95709ccc) out of 5 stars Finally!!!! 28 Aug. 2014
By Samantha LaFantasie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have waited for a VERY long time for this book! I love how we see from two different perspectives and what's even more different is they are both from men! Miss Welch has outdone herself in this wonderful book that finally brings Gabrielle and Eva together for realsies! I love how this story starts off as a sad love story and shows just how much love can accomplish! I love how all the lose ends are tied together and everything---all of the stories in the SAVING ANGELS series---make a complete picture that is beautiful and wonderful. Six degrees of separation meets The Notebook with a dash of paranormal. I guarantee you will love this book (and series) from the first word.

I was honored to beta read this. I've been extremely humbled by this wonderfully talented author to give me a chance to be one of the first that have read this book and series. I'm in love with the stories and this author's writing styles. I guarantee you will too!
HASH(0x959d04f8) out of 5 stars thoughts on the crossroads 21 Oct. 2014
By hello-booklover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
bloody brilliant book. We have two sets of love stories at a crossroads converging with similar backgrounds meeting up in a hospital during a hurricane. The tie in to all the previous books is so subtle and wonderfully done that you feel at home with these characters. I love how we got a snippet of the future of Michael and Lotus. Here we see the power of love can heal broken souls, lost souls and keep us going. Our story revolves around Raphael and Catalina and finally Gabriel and Evangeline. Gabriel and Evangeline was the first book in the series and it ended sadly with Gabriel being set off to find himself and lost in love. He knows he has a great love out there but cannot find her and only gets snippets of her. It isn’t until they see each other in the hospital that all the memories come back. These memories though have him fear the love and Evangeline because in each one he is set loose by her only to be continually lost in the world trying to find out who he is. Evangeline waits so patiently for him and this is a coming of terms for her. Gabriel must figure out if he will chance love or be continuously a broken soul wandering aimlessly in finding peace and happiness. They are given hope and perspective to their love by listening to the tale of Raphael and Catalina. Two lovers whose love is so great it spans decades. Each of them are ill and wanting to tell of the love that was so great in their lives but also hurt them. Raphael never gave up hope on Catalina and having her see he is the only one for her. Never gave up hope that Catalina would forgive herself and see that love is forgiving and supportive. their sad tale helps Evangeline and Gabriel see how fleeting and precious love is. The writing is amazing. Annie Welch has created a emotionally beautiful story that draws you in and keeps you invested in these two love stories. The way the characters are all intertwined and somehow related into Gabriel’s and Evangeline’s lives and love is precious and wonderful. The story truly does show what pure love is. Gabriel in the end is such a romantic and lovingly beautiful character who has flaws that we all can relate to. A must read and I do wonder what the future in a few years will be for these two sets of lovers.
HASH(0x9564ac2c) out of 5 stars After reading about the books in the series and the author I decided that this looked like a series that I would enjoy 16 Oct. 2014
By Mychele - Published on Amazon.com

Recently I was asked to read and do a review on The Crossroads by Annie Rose Welch, the 4th book in the Saving Angels series. After reading about the books in the series and the author I decided that this looked like a series that I would enjoy. I began with book one, Marigny Street, expecting a regular, formulaic romance book. Boy was I in for a surprise and a wild, but entertaining ride, around the world and back reading all these books.

This review is specific to the 4th book in the series, The Crossroads. You will want to read the first 3 before reading The Crossroads. They are heavily interconnected by this book.

I received copies of all four books in the Saving Angels series by Annie Rose Welch in exchange for my review on The Crossroads book. All views in this reviews are my honest, personal opinion.

Annie Rose Welch has a lovely, almost poetic way of describing the places in her books. It is one of the aspects of her books that I most enjoyed. I could feel the rain on my face, taste the chicory coffee and beignets, and hear the soul filled music walking through New Orleans. In Ireland I could hear the waves crashing on the rocky shores and feel the coolness of the air seep into my skin. In Italy the saltiness of the air, the passion of the people, and the warmth of the italian sun came shining through. And there was so much more. Whether someone's house, the land, the food, drink and merriment- all of it comes to life through all of her books. They are a treat for the senses! In The Crossroads what stood forth most prevalently for me was the italian village that Catalina is from, Paris while Catalina and Raphael are visiting, and the french winery. They all come to life dancing through the pages.

"Looking past the openings in the trees, I watch the sun flow golden, honey-like through the leaves. It glazes me in warmth, and the cold I was feeling melts away, just as it does with the thought of her."

Although I have never been I feel as if I have visited all of them. And lived the stories myself. It is a remarkable writer who can paint into life the essence of places and people using only words. Annie Rose Welch does this expertly in her descriptions throughout.

I have also enjoyed the minor characters that she brings to life in all of these books. Many like Maloney, Madam Catalina, Camille, and Rose make another appearance in The Crossroads much to my delight. They had captured my heart and imaginations making it fun to visit with them once again in another unfolding of this long tale of Fate and Choice. I was especially giddy to find that Madam Catalina's story was told in full finally. I was intrigued by her the first time we met. Fascinating woman.

The Crossroads tells the stories of Raphael, Catalina, and Eva and Gabriel whose initial story we hear in Marigny Street. This book also expertly weaves together the lives of all of the characters that were encountered in all of the first three books of this series. I was actually quite surprised how well she intertwined and brought them all together. It was an unexpected treat! I thought I was going to be most excited about Eva and Gabriel's story line in this book because I enjoyed Marigny Street so much. I was not expecting to be swept away by Raphael's and then Madam Catalina's story so completely. Their's were stories full of passion, love, commitment, sacrifice, and lose beyond what I anticipated feeling.

When I read romance type novels the ones that appeal to me most have strong, independent, intelligent women. The Crossroads was filled with women like this. From Eva who just totally tells it like it is, Madam who has survived more than any one should ever have to, Camille who is strong willed and knows how to pull everyone together when chaos is in the air, to Layla who has a small but strong role in this book. They are all women to be reckoned with, to respect, and that I'd personally want to know in real life! I actually found most of the women throughout this series to be significantly more level headed and intelligent then the men. And the men, to be clear, were fairly impressive! Well done, Annie Rose Welch, for writing strong, capable, inspiring women.

The Crossroads was a romance novel, but so much more. What I was most taken with was the concepts of Fate and Choice and what roles they play in our lives. This book is liberally sprinkled with snippets about the interconnectedness of lives, choices, and fate. By the last page we are able to very clearly see how all of these stories and people unfolded to be where they were on that specific day and time, through decades and generations of friends and family. We see what can only be detected when all is said and done.

"Fred and Maloney look at each for a moment and then laugh. 'We don't believe in accidents, Ralph. Everything happens for a reason. One life direction leads you to another, until eventually you end up where you're supposed to be. Years from now, when you're a hundred years old, you'll remember this day and you'll realize, where you are now is exactly where you were meant to be.'"

My one complaint of this book, along with the others in the Saving Angels series, is that I would have liked to have seen the organization of the Saving Angels in action more. To really see what they did and experience some of their adventures and battles. I love the idea of them, but felt it was a bit vague and glossed over throughout all the books. I wanted more details, more action, more adventure with them. The love stories were epic, but could have been enhanced with more details of the Saving Angels and who they really were.

All in all I enjoyed Raphael and Madam's stories in The Crossroads and thought it was a good read. Annie Rose Welch is a skilled writer who brings solid characters to life in settings worth exploring.

This review is on my website and Goodreads.
HASH(0x9567c360) out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing!!! 15 Sept. 2014

The Saving Angels series by Annie Rose Welch is turning into my all time favorite series. We first met Gabriel and Evangeline in Marigny Street. By the end of Marigny Street I didn’t know whether to throw my iPad across the room or lovingly stroke it as it had lovingly given me this beautiful story. The Crossroads continues on with their story and with that merges Raphael Rose’s and Madame Catalina’s story.

When I was reading along and first realized that the woman Raphael was so taken with was Madame Catalina, tears started forming in my eyes. If you have read the rest of the series, you know who Madame Catalina is and you know how important she is to Layla, to all of us as we have come to love her.

I cried no less than three times while I was reading it. Some were happy tears, some were tears of heartache, The Crossroads was just such an emotional journey for me.

We get to know Gabriel more in The Crossroads, more as a person, as someone who has flaws and isn’t this perfect heartthrob that we knew him as in Marigny Street. I loved that. Seeing him get angry and seeing how stubborn he could be just made him more real in my eyes.

Evangeline. I adore her. I would almost say that Gabriel is my latest book boyfriend, but it this series, this book, is so beautiful, it almost trivializes it to say that about him, plus in my eyes, there is no one meant for Gabriel more than Evangeline. Even just saying book boyfriend about him takes something away from them for me. Oh how I want these two to have their happily ever after. I’m almost scared to read the final book because Annie Rose Welch has a way of pulling the rug out from underneath me right when I think she is going in one direction. Maybe I should blame her, I shall lay it on the characters as they whisper to her which way they want their story to go.

I don’t want to just gloss over Raphael and Catalina’s relationship with the one sentence above. Their relationship is central to this book. It is beautiful and heart wrenching at the same time. Somehow as you read, both you and the characters are having these “aha” moments. These moments where you to start to understand the role fate plays in our lives, even from before the time we were born. Events that line up, people that cross the paths of other people, all of these are integral to the story that is our lives now.

I absolutely adored The Crossroads. If you had asked me to pick a book from the series that was my favorite up until this point it would have been Marigny Street. Even though I love all of the other books and the characters so much, that book, the beginning of Gabriel and Evangeline, has been my favorite. Now, The Crossroads is. I loved reading about Raphael and Madame Catalina. I loved seeing this human side to Gabriel, and I loved to see how the stars started to align. Amazing. Just an amazingly beautiful novel that I think everyone should read.

Thank you so much for my copy of The Crossroads. I will cherish it like I do the other books in the series!
