OrangeReviewStarMary Catherine can't afford to fall in love. Instead, she lives life to the fullest, swimming with dolphins and taking on worthy projects. That's what you do when a devastating diagnosis has numbered your days. Marcus Dillinger doesn't fit into her tidy routine, but the connection between the two is more than either can resist. Mary Catherine struggles to steer clear of Marcus; however, God's team of walking angels have other plans. When a street gang targeting Marcus accidently shoots a young boy, Angels Jag and Aspyn race against the clock to save lives, lead Marcus toward a closer relationship with God, and convince Mary Catherine that there is always time for love. The angels rejoice over their victories and anguish over what they fear may be a failed mission, yet everything is according to a divine plan.
VERDICT The author's focus is not on happy endings but on how to determine God's purpose for your life, making this series different from others. Kingsbury's second installment (after Angels Walk) shines with possibilities of new love and a few tears of farewell. Readers will look forward to the angels' next outing.
