Overview

How can you ever love again when tragedy has crushed your heart?

Kathleen used to love life. She had plans, dreams, and faith in life; but that was before the accident that took it all away from her in an instant. Now that her beloved brother is dead and she’s confined to a wheelchair, her future is but a dark cloud hovering above her head. How can she ever find the will to move on and keep living without him? Even the cares of the happy-go-lucky American physiotherapist who’s helping her with her rehab therapies are all in vain. Life seems to have lost its meaning, until one night she receives an unexpected celestial visit…

Colin has been working as a physiotherapist in Dublin for almost five years, but he’s never bonded so much with a patient like he is bonding with Kathleen; there’s something about those sad blue eyes that makes him want to help her, to take away the pain that reminds him so much of his own. Having lost both his parents in a plane crash when he was only sixteen, Colin knows how it feels to have someone you love taken so abruptly away from you, and he makes it his mission to help Kathleen find her faith in life again. But something changes along the way…

Sometimes love can work miracles. If you believe.

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.  I gave this book 5 Angelic Stars.  This is Colin and Kathleen's story.  Kathleen wakes up in a hospital and doesn't remember how she got there. All she knows is there is a gorgeous american doctor sitting there with her. Finally after some thinking she starts to piece some stuff together. But not sure why she is still there she doesn't know what has happened to her best friend and brother Declan. They where on their way to the airport to fly to New York to start a new life. For her to write the book she always wanted to write and just be happy. But all that changed when a car hits into them and takes the life of her brother.  When she is told that he is gone it changes her world and she will never be the same. And on top of that she cannot feel anything below her waist. Test after test is done, but there seems to be no damage. And they don't understand why Kathleen cannot walk. Colin lost his parents in a plane crash when he was 16 and he knows the pain and devastation that she is going through and he is determined to be there for her. But with all the pain that she is going through and all the pain that he has never dealt with can these two finally see that they are made for each other?  This is not your typical love story, it has a little twist to it and it was such a great read.  This is a beautiful love story about two people who have had the ultimate devastation happen to them. How do you get back from that? It's hard after losing someone you love to go on as if everything is okay. Kathleen struggles with life in general she feels like her life is over and that she should have just died with her brother. She has so many people that love her, but that is hard for her to see when all she sees is pain. The only person that seems to get through to her is Colin and she is even pushing him away. I felt for her and cried for her. And when she finally started to let him in, I cheered for her. She is a strong willed beautiful woman, who deserves to be happy and live her life. That is what her brother Declan would have wanted for her. She has to say goodbye to him, and Declan makes sure that it's done in a very special way.  Do you believe in Angels? I know I do. And how amazing would it be to have your own brother as your Angel? This story will have you laughing, crying and cheering for both Kathleen and Colin. It is a story about hope, and love and learning that even when you think your life is over fate has other plans for you. And you may have lost all that you think you had in your life. But something comes along to help you heal and to learn to live again.   Kathleen's journey to living again is beautiful and it is something you don't want to miss. Thank you Roberta for such an amazing story. I look forward to reading more from you.

OMG what can you say heartbreaking, funny, tender, touching, happiness, tears, laughter, joy, peace, those are just a few words to describe the emotions you will feel when you fall into the pages of this book. And fall is exactly what you will do. Hugged by an Angel its a very touching story of tragedy, struggle, finding ones self again, growth, love and happiness. Roberta does an amazing job bringing you into Kathleen's life from the moment she wakes up in the hospital. You can feel her pain, her raw emotions. In walks Colin who makes it his mission to help Kathleen get past this tragic accident, help her find herself again and find a way to cope and move on and enjoy life again. Along the way you are brought into Colin's world and are given a glimpse at the pain he still harbors from his own past tragedy. Somewhere along the way things change.  I couldn't wait to get to the next page to see if Kathleen finally, if she got to, if they well. Okay I can't spoil it you have to read it. But this is truly an extraordinary read, excellently written. The tender moments, the raw emotion its so real. I won't lie there are some very heart wrenching moments within the pages of Hugged by an Angel. But for every one of those there are equally funny and tender moments as well. I do not give out to many 5 stars. But this one it deserves nothing less than 5 stars.

I was given this book for an honest review. Favorite Quotes: “I know what it feels to have someone you love taken away from you abruptly with no chance to say goodbye, no chance to tell them how much you loved them,” he said, his eyes still locked with mine. “I know the pain, the emptiness, the rage, the despair that takes hold of your body, crushing your heart and leaving you breathless. But you can’t let it destroy you.” I stared at him openmouthed, feeling my heart ache at the way his eyes had lost their gleam.” “An angel?” he finished my sentence and I nodded. He looked at me, his blue eyes deeper than ever. “I’m not only an angel, Kathy. I’m your angel. I’m here to help you. I’ve been sent to cure your soul and help you fulfill your destiny.” “Look for me in a rainbow, in the wind, in a blue sky. You’ll see me there, smiling at you from Heaven.” Declan was there, hugging me in his own”   Do you believe in Ghost? Do you believe in angels?  Do you believe in miracles?  If you do then this is a book for you. Kathleen had a dream, a plan and a loving brother but a tragic accident took it all away from her in an instant including her brother. Confined to a wheelchair and knowing her life will never be the same again at least she thought so. Then she meets her physiotherapist Colin and he decided his is going to make it his mission to help her but he is not sure why. Colin is a man who like Kathleen has had his share of pain in his life. He lost his parents in a plane crash at a young age which means he really does know what Kathleen (aka Icy to him) is going through. What neither of them expects is that they will help each other heal. How can they heal each other you ask? Well they don’t do it alone they do it with the help of their angels, yes, that’s right I said their angels.  The angels are her brother Declan and his parents. They help to show them they are there for them in their hearts and will always be there you just may not always see or feel them.  Overtime their love grows and their hearts heal.  With the help of her brother healing touch she is able to walk again.  Love can truly work miracles. “If you believe”… This story is a heart wrenching, tragic, tear jerker.  Make sure when you read this you have tissues.  Crying is a strong possibility.  They way Colin and Kathleen banter with each other is awesome.  They both learn to lean on each other and trust each other. I found myself so involved in the story that I started yelling for her to listen and laughed and cried right along with her and Colin.  I do believe in angels and these two had three.  Loved the story… Can't wait to read another of her stories.

I've read two of this authors books now and I'm in love with her style of writing. She draws me in and keeps me entertained throughout the entire book. Her characters are believable and very likable. Her stories are filled with hope and happy endings. The romance is real and soft. If you're looking for a soft romance filled with sweet characters and lovely romance, go ahead and grab this book. You won't be disappointed. --I was given this book in exchange for an honest review
