Angel’s Sang but it got a bit confused

48979969._SY475_.jpgAngels Sing by Eli Easton

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

I absolutely adored the first book in the Daddy Dearest series and this one had all the same promise when it started.

It’s seriously sweet, with a compelling cast of characters and I loved the setting, I’d happily spend hours in Raven Books!

But, I’m not sure what happened, it all then just seemed to carry on with one note.

***Spoiler***

I think as well there was supposed to be some allusion to the fabulous film It’s A Wonderful Life, where the angel Clarence shows George Bailey what life would have been like has he never been born.

So, in this one, we keep hearing bells, and there’s a strange woman called Clarice, and a child, who seem to keep appearing in the periphery and then “things happen” with the plot.

For me, though, it just never seemed clear enough if there was magical or heavenly intervention and the ending just fizzled out with that plot line.

There’s a lot of admittedly cute kids, and a chapter from Stanton’s mum’s PoV that I didn’t really get the need for, but they’re my main niggles.

Overall, this is as accomplished as I’d expect from Eli, with a warmth to it which perfectly suits the festive season.

It has a gorgeous Epilogue, but I think I’d have liked a bit more of Jamie and Stanton together where the kids and the pageant weren’t the focus.

Moderately steamy, it works well within the narrative and I didn’t feel I was missing out on any sexy times.

Another good addition to the Christmas romance list and my niggles may not bother other readers at all.

The last thing Joel Morgan wants is to fall in love again. Scarred by his failed marriage, Joel’s determined to keep his life emotionally stable—which means taking a job teaching fourth grade, fixing up his house on weekends, and avoiding absolutely all romantic entanglements. And he’s doing great.

Until he meets sweet but struggling single dad, Ollie Snow.

Following the tragic death of his sister and her husband two years earlier, Ollie became the legal guardian of their two young sons—much to the horror of the boys’ conservative grandparents. They think Ollie’s too young and too unreliable to raise their grandsons. So to prove them wrong, Ollie’s determined to parent the boys without anyone’s help.

Until he meets reserved but caring teacher, Joel Morgan.

As the only two men in the school’s Parent-Teacher Association, Joel and Ollie are thrown together over a series of fundraising events, and somewhere between the Beach Fun Run and the Fall Festival they fall in love. But Ollie has another reason for moving to New Milton—a reason he’s keeping close to his chest—and Joel’s wounded heart won’t trust a man with secrets.

Dare they hope for a future together, or will their past pain keep them apart forever?
