Blair once again delivers an ingenious story with both humor and seriousness, along with intriguing characters in this new Works Like Magick tale. The twin girls are a delight, the hero is quite dashing and his presence as an angel reasonably explained, and the heroine’s struggle to overcome a debilitating problem is honestly dealt with.

Worry and too much interest in one of his charges brings guardian angel Chance Godricson back to Earth. Queisha Saint-Denis is agoraphobic and due for some big changes in her life — one being the arrival of the 5-year-old twin girls she was the surrogate for, after their parents go missing. Presented to Queisha as her new cook by Vivica, owner of the Works Like Magick employment agency, Chance also poses as co-guardian to the twins. As Queisha struggles to become what she feels the girls need, Chance works to keep his emotional involvement under wraps, all while shedding wing feathers all over the place and without telling a lie, which makes for some interesting conversations!

This book is about a guardian angel that terminates his human life early to save a women that was schedule to die instead. He is attracted to her and keeps and eye on her from heaven, especially since she has agoraphobia from the cave in. Even though he is a low level angel, he wants to be her guardian on earth. He accidentally “falls” to earth, more like pushed by a fellow angel , and becomes her guardian, but his time is limited..

This is a sweet, loving, amusing romance. The characters are down to earth, positive and make the best of every situation.

A light fun read with a bit of spice. It’s about life, love, laughter, children and companionship.
