★ ☆★ ☆ – 4 Stars
After an eye-opening congressional hearing, former corporate shark Jack Morgan redirects his ill-gotten gains toward charity work. However, his attempts to bring holiday cheer to a Bolivian village meet with one disaster after another: canceled flights, crumbling luggage, implacable customs officials. His plans disintegrate further when he runs into a sexy tourist with . . . wings?
As Jack’s guardian angel, Sarah Phimm has her work cut out for her. When his latest volunteer mission risks his life, she’s forced to reveal herself to him—but only in part. She can’t risk him knowing the truth. He’s everything her immortal heart desires, but can never have. She soon discovers that keeping him safe amidst death bridges and tumbling telephone poles is far easier than guarding her heart.
Midwinter Magic is the next book behind Charmed.
Sarah Phimm is Jack Morgan’s Guardian Angel since the day he is born. She has watched over him from the time he started breathing until now. Now, everything changed since Jack Morgan can see her.
I found this book to be weird. I just couldn’t get over how Sarah fell in love with someone she has known his whole life. She was placed as his guardian angel, with one mission to protect Jack. So, how did it go from that to falling in love with him? I dunno, it would be like a mother falling in love with a son, you get my drift?
However, the story was good, once you get halfway into it. This book wasn’t like Charmed, other than Sarah is from Nether-Netherland. There was lot of view from the writer’s perspective. In my opinion, maybe if we could have been on the level between the characters, it would have been a different feel. Some of the book, I felt like I was watching the characters instead of knowing their thoughts, and the depth of their being.
I loved the end of the book, it was very catching. If you love reading about angels you should totally give this a shot. The ending is creative.
Overall, I did enjoy it, and I did finish it. Of course, I will read more by Erica Ridley!
