No Angels for Christmas . . . a cozy romantic mystery with suspense from The Mystery Angel Romances series. An angel hidden in every book waiting for you to figure who . . .
Child psychologist Rachel Kelly isn’t quite sure how to handle the situation with her newest client — a six-year-old boy who says he can talk to angels and one is coming to help Rachel. She already has her hands full of trouble this Christmas season, and things quickly take a turn for the worse when a stalker crashes Rachel’s Christmas party and takes her young clients hostage.
Police negotiator, Lt. Jake Dillon, walked away from his fiancée Rachel when she suddenly balked at having kids. His kids. Yet when the hostage crisis erupts, Rachel calls Jake first. Now he has a choice to make — stand back and wait for the cavalry to save Rachel or step in and try to save her himself. Time is running out, and Jake may be their only chance for rescue.
Unless Rachel’s little angel-spying client is telling the truth…
The character development in the story was excellent, and I liked the plot. I also liked that it wasn’t a romance with open door sex. The book seemed well written, and I didn’t find lots of typos and errors. There’s an angel in the book, but I didn’t guess who it was. The only problem I had with the story is that I don’t like to read about child abuse. I know it exists. I saw it when I was a teacher, but it made the book so intense that I had to take breaks from it from time to time. Other readers won’t feel that way so I don’t mean it as a criticism, just a caution for those of us who like our reading a little lighter. On a scale of 1 to 5 I’d give it a 4.
