"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.
