SUGAR COOKIE ANGELS by D.M. Grant
Fiction, Contemporary Romance, Paranormal, Novella (80 pages), Sweet
Blurb: Jesse Coleson had one goal…acquire the old inn and keep her real estate firm afloat with the commission. What she wasn’t expecting was a car accident, an attractive single father, an interfering guardian angel, and a sudden limit to her time on earth. Luke Benson shut his inn down a year ago with no intention of opening its doors to the public. But when he pulls a mysterious woman from her sunken car, and an old foe reappears, he’s forced to question what life and loss really mean. Can they learn the true meaning of life together, or will the past and heavenly forces pull them under?
Thoughts: This was a sweet, quick read – only 80 pages. Jesse is on her way back to the small town where her grandmother lived. She owns a real estate agency and has plans to buy the inn that’s there. Things go awry when she is run off the road and ends up upside down in a freezing creek (it’s winter!). She’s pulled out of the water by Luke Benson, the owner of the inn.
And then things get really interesting.
The characters are fun—especially Liza the ghost. I loved Liza’s pranks on Jesse. This is a sweet, fun romance that hits all the “Hallmark-type” spots. The only thing that didn’t work for me, and it’s minor, was the short timeline for their romance. But the rest… the reason Luke closed the inn down, his daughter, the cook, Jesse’s rival, and more… it all works well. There is a lot going on for such a short read.
Recommendation: If you’re looking for a sweet, quick, holiday read, pick this one up. You won’t be disappointed.
