Augusta Goodnight is a neat fantasy angel, and would I love to have a little visit from her. The book is a great 'feel good read,' and besides,the mental smells from reading this book is tantalizing. I want Augusta to come and bake for me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

<P>Prentice Dobson wonders how life can get any crueler for herself and her mother. She still mourns her father¿s death from a heart attack when her sister Maggie died in a car crash. Between the deaths Prentice loses her job when the Atlanta based magazine she worked for folded. She has come home to bury her younger sister Maggie. However, Prentice cannot even grieve in peace. Someone knocked aside the stone of her long dead Uncle Faris and dug a hole where the coffin had been buried. Prentice wonders if her Aunt Zorah might not say something like that is just like ¿That Fool¿. <P>The next day, Prentice meets Augusta Goodnight making hot chocolate in her mother¿s kitchen. Augusta claims to be Prentice¿s temporary guardian angel sent from heaven to help her. Prentice is in for one more shock when the body inside of Faris¿ coffin is someone else. As Prentice, assisted by Augusta begins to look into her sister¿s death, she begins to learn about herself, her family, and her sister¿s family by marriage. <P> AN ANGEL TO DIE FOR is a captivating southern mystery with a pinch of whimsical heavenly magic. Readers who relish humor in their tales will fully delight in amusing story line. Prentice is a warm character struggling with several of life¿s toughest hooks and Augusta is an intriguing temp who will send readers searching for the previous novel (see ANGEL AT TROUBLESOME CREEK). Mignon F. Ballard writes a lighthearted romp that leaves the audience happily entertained. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
