Their Guardian Angels get into the act to guide the two
to a better understanding of each other.
Nick’s Guardians help his deceased Father get through to Nick
and help him to understand that death is not the end.
This was an unconventional love story as far as I can see. A psychic medium who can also communicate with dogs and a full on skeptic who thinks she is duping his mom. The twist being guardian angels who try to make the pieces fall where they may. As for the plot, it was intriguing enough to stop me from abandoning the story but nothing too mind blowing. The characters and the writing is what made me keep turning the pages.
Sophie is a wonderful and sweet woman who does not like the criticism of non-believers. I adored her character and the way she was with JT (her dog), it just won my heart. That is another thing I liked about this book, the DOGS! You might have guessed already I am a huge dog lover, so Max, JT and Zeus are actually my favorites from this book.Coming on to Nick, now that is another strong character.I liked him just fine but there was no swoon-worthiness. It is funny how a paranormal book that borders on magical realism is the most realistic about characters and romance.
The side story of nick’s dad and the shares kept the mystery alive. So overall it was an entertaining read.
