Book Review: Falling for Hope by Anne Conley

 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.



 Hope is an eccentric librarian who lives with her five cats and loves to spend her time fantasizing about living in a world of shape-shifters, vampires, and fairies. Although the existence of a paranormal world is far from Hope's reality, she can't help but sense there's something different about the mysterious man lurking in her library.
Gabriel is God's Strength, the Messenger, who's been tasked with delivering the Word for millennia. His most recent assignment will be his last, to fall in love and become human. But he can't quite figure out what he's done to displease the Boss. Gabriel's latest assignment might be the hardest, but this gorgeous rubenesque quirk of a woman definitely has him intrigued.


This is the third book in the Four Winds Series. I had high expectations for this one after reading the first two books and this did not disappoint. The book starts out in a library setting with Gabe (The Archangel Gabriel) scouting the focal point of his assignment Hope. She was not the typical woman (physically or personality) compared to the other two women Heaven and Grace. This made the story more interesting to me. I loved seeing a dynamic where the female character wasn't some perfect, petite, overly fit looking woman that needed a man to rescue her from something. Hope was the one pursuing Gabe while dealing with the struggles of her own life. I loved the story and how the characters interacted from each other, and even more that Gabe's brothers were brought back to tie in the previous books.
This was a quick read and aside from a few spelling errors, this book was amazing from beginning to end. It can easily be read from a stand alone book or as the continuation from the series.

Make sure to grab your copy of Falling for Hope, and check out the other books in the Four Winds Series.
