This was my first read by Youngblood and Poole. It won't be my last.
I liked the premise of angels having to earn their "wings" so to speak. There are no wings actually involved. Maybe later? Instead there is hand waving without a magic wand. The afterlife rules are well thought out.
Gracie is a likable character and nicley contrasted by her stern mentor. Gracie makes mistakes in the afterlife which shows that she takes with her what she had in mortality.
I really liked the introduction of the "other" angels. A nice plot twist and good comparison of dark and light.
The relationship between Alex and Dawson is well developed. As always, I love a happy ending. I definitely want to read more about Gracie's assignments.
Clean, wholesome, and delightful.
Gracie Louise Andrews led an ordinary, humdrum life—right up until the day she died and became an angel ... err ... almost an angel. In order to become a real angel, she must prove herself. She's given the assignment to help couples find lasting love--an overwhelming task, considering her own love life was a complete disaster. Begrudgingly, Gracie accepts her new role and is assigned her first couple: Alex Swanson and Dawson Allen.
Alex, a self-made business owner who has her nose constantly to the grind, regrets losing Dawson, the love of her life. Formerly the Marketing Director of Alex’s company, Dawson has moved out of state and is no longer a part of her life.
Gracie uses her newfound angel powers to orchestrate a wacky plan to bring the couple back together. Things go awry when a handsome, mysterious stranger sweeps Gracie off her feet and threatens to distract her from her mission. Will her zany antics save the day, proving that love never fails, or will she bumble the whole thing up and forgo any chance of ever becoming an angel?
