From August 1st - 15th I will be participating in my first book blog tour hosted by Author Blog Tours. I'm pretty excited about the book, too. I will have a review of the book up in time for the tour next week, so check back soon to read it! Until then, here is the synopsis and some lovely author info for you.
What caught my eye:
Jess denies God. In his infinite wisdom, he’s taken everyone she’s ever loved. Moving to the French Quarter was a ploy to erase the guilt she felt for rebuking her faith. Perhaps, if she hadn’t met Justin, an angel preoccupied with getting back into God’s good graces, and drowning in his hatred for humanity, her plan would have worked.
Justin’s general disdain for the human race makes him difficult to like, but some higher power has appointed him her keeper. Justin’s convinced he can mend her broken relationship with her maker, but in the process he learns a thing or two about his own humanity.
Never mind falling in love, that’s not supposed to happen. In fact, it may even be forbidden. Jess just wants Justin to understand her plight, and he wants to protect her from a world she doesn’t know.If neither are equipped to save the other, then whose soul will live and whose will perish?
I thought this sounded pretty interesting. Not to mention that it's a story set in the fabulous city of New Orleans. How could you NOT fall in love with a book with such an incredible setting?
The author, Monique James, has a website that is like taking a trip through this mystical city. The black and white photographs on the home page are beautiful. I also like the little section that gives additional information about Southern Louisiana. I enjoyed my visit to New Orleans (7 years ago!) and hope to make it back one day. Obviously, I get a little excited about books that take place in cities that I've visited. It makes the visualization process so much more rich.
