Baron has done it again with her latest supernatural romance, Follow
An Angel. With its sympathetic characters, mesmerizing plot, and
highly satisfying ending, this book is a real page-turner.
Thirty years old,
always-a-bridesmaid-never-a-bride Eden Eastman is resigned to being
single. Jaded from years of online dating and on the heels of being
stood up by one man too many, she considers checking herself into

Gabriel appears hovering over the balcony of the fifth floor condo,
explaining that he is a celestial being on a mission. Like Clarence from

is an angel in training; unlike Clarence, he is no old fogey – after
all, he has a Facebook page! And using his social media savvy, he
devises a plan to help Eden meet her soul mate, but they have just until

At first, Eden is completely consumed
by the quest for true love, but as she develops genuine affection for
Gabe, she begins to care even more about helping him succeed in his
mission. Do they make their deadline? Does Eden meet the man of her
dreams? You’ll have to read the book to find out. But I will tell you
that the beautiful twist at the end will bring joy to your heart and a
tear to your eye.

feelings and actions was spot-on. Five stars! Highly recommended!

believe that love is not her calling. Then, when she finally thinks
she’s found an ideal suitor, he stands her up. It’s the final straw

Shiraz, falls asleep to the lull of a delicious ocean breeze. She wakes
up and sees a beautiful cloud formation, which she believes looks like
an Angel. She rubs her eyes and realizes she is seeing a man with wings,
wearing a sexy pair of Aviators. She blinks her eyes in disbelief. Maybe
drinking a whole bottle of wine last night wasn’t one of her better
ideas. Maybe this Angel was heaven-sent to help her mend her broken
heart and fix her messed up life.

Eastman is looking for love and her biological clock is ticking. And
she's been stood up. But this isn't another moan and groan story.
Marilyn Baron's Follow An Angel is witty, intelligent, totally
up-to-date - I mean, an angel that tweets and has a Facebook page! It's
a great read and what a fabulous twist at the end. Oh I just LOVED
