Adrian Quinn spent four years in prison for a crime he did not do although all the evidence pointed otherwise. The attorney needs to clear his name not only for his own sake, but also for that of his family, especially his mother. With his employer Tony Nicholls dead in a plane crash in South America, Adrian targets his boss? ex-wife Faith, a stuck-up SOB as his best source to prove he was only a naive fool.

Committing a probation violation by leaving North Carolina for Knoxville, Adrian is shocked by what he sees of Faith, a person he has branded in his mind as having all of Tony?s wealth. Instead, he finds a hard working shop owner who volunteers her time to a local shelter. As he becomes better acquainted with her, he realizes she too was an ingenuous dupe of Tony. They begin to fall in love even as they investigate what happened to Tony?s books and money. However, an unknown enemy wants the truth to remain buried in a bank vault and will kill to insure that occurs.

NOBODY?S ANGEL is an exciting romantic suspense novel that provides much entertainment to sub-genre fans. The story line is fast-paced and exhilarating, but insures full character development of the lead characters. Although Adrian does not come across as too bitter and adapts to Faith?s innocence rather easily, the lead couple makes a fine pair who will hook the audience with the way their past impacts their future. Award winning Ms. Rice has cooked up another thriller that readers will devour.

So overwritten, it's hard to wade through all the verbiage.
