Angel's Kiss

Author: Lynne Stevie
Published: 20 July 2012
Pages: 268
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
Pinky's Rating (out of 5): 5 dragonflies

This is the story of Alexandria Hayes-Lewis (Lexie) who has been marked at birth by an Angel's Kiss. What Lexie doesn't know is that the seemingly innocent birth mark actually has a deeper meaning.
 
Lexie manages her family's detective agency, and when an ordinary case turns deadly and she is brutally attacked, things seem to start spiralling out of control, and why does she keep having these nightmares that are so vivid that they make all her senses come alive.
 
Lynne Stevie has managed to encompass murder, mystery and intrigue with a paranormal bent all the way to the end, that will keep you breathless and wanting more. It is hard to believe this is her debut novel.
 
I can't wait for the sequel to be released.

I was totally blown away by this book. I laughed and cried as Jeff Dawson took us on a truly emotional roller coaster ride of love, loss, hope and heartbreak.
