I am delighted to join the blog tour for No Angels for Christmas by Petie McCarty today! My thanks to Marianne Judy at Goddess Fish Promotions for the chance to join and the wonderful review copy!
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…
This book is the latest in The Mystery Angel Romance Series, No Angels for Christmas (The Mystery Angel Romance Series Book 2) by Petie McCarty.
It was an interesting read spanning a large variation of themes. From friendship, love and romance to abuse, violence and mental health issues, there was something in it for everyone.
The author’s character development was outstanding, especially given the number of characters that were in the book and their diversity. I didn’t really have a favourite, but, if pushed, I would say that I grew rather fond of Jake for his charm, caring nature and perseverance. Also worth a mention is Emily as I loved her friendliness and calming attitude.
The story and plot were fascinating and well-written, however, I found the pacing rather slow, especially around the middle of the novel where developments and events were being repeated and seemed laboured and drawn out.
I loved the dramatic ending and I would definitely recommend No Angels for Christmas as overall, it was a great read.
I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my own request. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
