Follow an Angel

Marilyn 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 Belleview or jumping off a bridge. But since she’s actually neither crazy nor suicidal, she decides instead to flee New York City and retreat to her parents’ beachfront property in an attempt to heal her broken heart.

All bets are off when hunky, winged Gabriel appears hovering over the balcony of the fifth floor condo, explaining that he is a celestial being on a mission. Like Clarence from It’s A Wonderful Life, Gabe 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 sunset to carry it out.

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.

As a single woman often disillusioned with the dating scene myself, I could relate to Eden on so many levels. Ms. Baron’s portrayal of her heroine’s thoughts, feelings and actions was spot-on. Five stars! Highly recommended!

Tami and Maxine,
Thank you for your comments.Twitter features a lot in the book, but at its core it’s about love and loneliness and looking for your soul mate.

Guess what? I just went to Amazon.com, typed in “Marilyn Baron,” and both her titles came up! I just downloaded “Follow an Angel” straight to my Kindle, to keep “A Choir of Angels” company. Way cool. :)

I can’t wait to read it. I loved “A Choir of Angels,” and I want to read what made two grown men cry. Congratulations, again, Marilyn.

Linsey,
Than you so much. My sister just finished it and said she loved it and it made her cry in three places.That shouldn’t make me happy but it does because it means I got the emotion right. I hope you enjoy reading it.I appreciate your kind words and your support.

Yes, I really loved that story. It is very hopeful and funny! Having been to your condo several times, I know each movement of Gabe and “Eden”. I loved the part about your checklist for cleanup and check-out of your condo. You have a great condo, and it worked so well with the story! Love the line about the wing chair!
I hope everyone who has ever searched for or found his or her soul mate reads your story!

Thank you Elaine. I’m so glad you liked it.
