Book Review: Falling for Grace by Anne Conley
Four Winds Series:
About the Author:
Anne has written her entire life and has the boxes of angst-filled journals and poetry to prove it. She's been writing for public consumption for the last four years. Currently she is writing two romance series. In Stories of Serendipity, she explores real people living real lives in small town Texas in a contemporary romance setting. In The Four Winds, she chronicles God's four closest archangels, Uriel, Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael, falling in love and becoming human. She lives in rural East Texas with her husband and children in her own private oasis, where she prides herself in her complete lack of social skills, choosing instead to live with the people inside her head.
Rafael is one of God’s Four Winds, the Archangel of Healing. He has answered the countless prayers for healing of loved ones, wondering what it was about the emotion that made humans willing to sacrifice so much.
Grace is a lifeguard who has been on Rafe’s radar since she lost a little boy three years ago. What she doesn’t realize is the green haze that comes over her during a rescue is actually a divine presence who’s about to give up his celestial body to become a very real entity in her life.
While Grace is trying to overcome her own demon, Rafe is discovering his own sexuality, but there’s a darker presence making himself known. The Deceiver wants what Rafe is getting, and he’ll do whatever it takes to have her.
This is the second book in the Four Winds Series. Although the books can stand alone by themselves, this one had a slight integration from the first book (not giving away any spoilers). I thought this book was intense and well thought out. The plot from this book made more sense to me than the previous as it was more plausible to have someone become roommates and fall for one another. I thought the imagery was great and had me picturing everything from the first pages at the beach and continued throughout the entire story. The only things keeping me from giving it a 5 star rating were the few typos I noticed and felt it carried on a bit too long. With that being said, Falling for Grace was another standout book from Ms. Conley and a book you won't want to put down.
