Review by Pixie:
As a HUGE Fan of Eve Paludan anytime one of her books comes up on my Kindle IT WILL be read! What a heartfelt story this is. I have always (and those of you who know me know its true) truly believed Angels walk the earth in human form. Sometimes they know it. Sometimes they don’t.
In The Man who fell from the Sky, This is exactly what happens, Cody a loving Husband to Mariah, goes missing on Christmas Morning, presumed to be dead (no spoiler here … he is) he is now an Angel Detective and is sent back to earth to find out what happened to him, how he died and who killed him. To do this he must go into the human form of J.R., a man who spent time in prison for murder and is now a firefighter, and just a lost soul. It’s hard to believe but you will LOVE J.R. (nope you will not get out of me how you love a murderer).
J.R. and Cody are aware of each other and work together as J.R. literally falls into Mariah’s life. The twists and turns, and the faith, but not pushy is just inspiring. The good verses evil and the SHOCKING reveal of the killer left me just saying WOW!! AND a touching love story comes out of it all … This is the first that will be a series in “The Angel Detectives.” I can tell you now I will be reading EVERY one!!! I give this book 6 angel wings (cause you can’t have 5) What a Touching Story! THANK YOU Eve for touching my faith again
Review by Author/Reviewer Geri Ahearn:
Inspired by J.R. Rain and human emotion, Eve Paludan delivers a creative Masterpiece, based on good verses evil. Within the pages of this delightful and interesting book, the reader is introduced to refreshing waterfalls, ranches, animals and much more.
The story is beautifully written with rich, evocative words, and nostalgia. The characters are genuine, and there’s never a dull moment. I highly recommend THE MAN WHO FELL FROM THE SKY. Angel Detectives Case #1″ to all romance lovers, who enjoy stories that will tug on the heartstrings, combined with humor and suspense.
The author takes the reader on an emotional roller-coaster ride with angels. The angel investigator comes to life, the fantasy is charming, and the romance is sparkling. The engaging story reflects on faith, redemption, forgiveness, and happiness. The heartwarming story is not only impressive, but thought-provoking, page-after-page as we ponder on inner-strength.
Long after the book is closed, the reader will crave for more compelling stories of hope, love, and trust. This entertaining book is as touching as HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN, as romantic as CITY OF ANGELS, and as enchanting as MICHAEL.
