"Engaging angelic romance"
When she died from an overdose Geneva McBride is shocked
when she does not go straight to hell. Geneva deserted her
husband Jonah and their baby Katie. However, heaven is
giving her a second chance to make amends. She must
matchmake a permanent relationship between her former
husband and his soul mate. In some form of a celestial
joke, Jonah's "beloved" seems more like Geneva a card-
carrying member of the Bad Girl's Club.
Jonah wonders why his life is collapsing. His restaurant
the BLUE MOON is failing and his infant is ailing. Now he
finds sleeping in his restaurant's bathroom a woman, who
when he wakes her up claims amnesia. When "Angel" begins
helping Katie, he does not throw her out. When she claims
he is her spouse, he goes along for the ride for now. Soon
he enlists the town to join in on his charade that he
quickly wants to make real and permanent. However, what
will happen to the growing love that they share when his
Earth Angel regains her memory or someone recognizes her?
Though readers will just have to accept Jonah's illogical
decision to not tell the truth to Angel, the story line is
an amusing heavenly romantic suspense. The cast makes the
plot hum, as readers will appreciate the lead couple, the
caring townsfolk, the child, and the second chance at Angel
wings for Geneva. Though the suspense subplot adds action
and intrigue, it takes away from a fine matchmaking tale
that fans of angelic romances will enjoy.

When bad girl Geneva McBride died, she assumed she'd go
straight to hell, but it turned out the Big Guy had a sense
of humor. To earn her angel's wings she had to match her
former husband with his ideal mate. Luckily, she had a
foolproof plan--well, almost foolproof.
Heaven Sent . . .
Ever since Jonah McBride's wife had left him and then
passed away unexpectedly, his daughter had been sick. Plus,
his restaurant, the Blue Moon Diner, was failing. His life
didn't truly spiral out of control, however, until he
discovered a woman sleeping in the ladies' room--a woman
who awoke believing they were married.
Clearly the beautiful blonde suffered from amnesia. But
when she nursed his child with practiced ease, Jonah
figured the truth could wait a few days--just until his
baby's health improved. As the white lies added up, though,
his house suddenly felt like a true home, his business took
off, and the lady responsible made him weak with desire.
Now, Jonah planned to prove their love was the real deal.
