If this is Paradise I want my Money Back! This is the first book I have read by this author. I love her writing and will be reading her other books also. Looks like the last book she published was in 2011 - hope she has a new one coming out soon! Highly recommend this book - way different plot and couldn't put it down!Was this review helpful?

conversations around her. Most are directed at her in attempts to bring
her back to consciousness and she appreciates the efforts, really she
does, but a little peace and quiet would be nice, too. Between her best
friend Fiona’s chatter about the latest guy she met on the internet and
her mum’s blathering on about just about anything, not to mention the
boring music they make her listen to, Charlotte just might stay down
where it’s really rather nice. None of them know the truth about what
happened right before the car accident when her significant other,
James, unceremoniously dumped her after five years and asked her how
soon she could move out. Charlotte was clueless, had no idea he…hmm, she
can’t quite remember but it’ll come to her…and, well, she’d ignored the
fact that all her family and friends had disliked him from the
beginning. Looking back, she guessed she should have paid attention.
And then James comes to see her and pours on the charm, trying his best
to appear terribly concerned. Unfortunately for him, no one in the room
is buying his act. Then, listening to his BS, she remembers, the Other
Woman. To top it all off, he takes a call from his new honey and starts
with the sexy talk, right there beside Charlotte’s bed. That’s all it
takes for her to see the bright light. Charlotte finds herself
apparently dead and about to be “assessed” by Regina Angelorum (who
first has to take a call with Gabriel, THE Gabriel) to see whether she’s
a candidate for the AWE programme—that’s Angelic Work Experience. Next
thing she knows, she’s in a classroom, learning all she needs to know to
be a guardian angel. Then she gets her earthly assignment and she can
hardly believe she’s right back on earth…in James’s house. Horrified at
first at the idea that James is her charge, she soon learns that there
is a way she can mess with him. Charlotte is delighted with her
new-found abilities until the day she learns that being an angel is not
all fun and games. Fortunately, there might be a way she can redeem
herself. This is a delightful mix of laughter and sorrow, anger and
forgiveness and, above all, redemption. Ms. Carroll has crafted an
intriguing story and I look forward to reading more of her work.
