Susanna Daniels isn’t looking for love. She’s sitting on an East Texas park bench minding her own business and shedding a few tears, when a very big dog slides to an awkward stop right at her feet…dragging his handsome owner behind him on a leash. Gabe Peretti is a burned out cop looking for new purpose, but he’s not immune to a pretty woman’s tears. The two get unexpectedly chummy there in the park, before they even discover that Gabe just moved into Heart’s Haven, the cottage-rental complex where Susanna already lives. Steeped in legends of love and rumored to be occupied by angels, Heart’s Haven is far from your everyday rental community, and Gabe and Susanna have just taken the first step into a wonderful journey of love, healing and a little touch of heaven. Marianne Evans grabs the reader from the first page of OPERATION BREATHLESS (Book 2, Heart’s Haven collection) and refuses to relinquish her hold until the last riveting word. She has an impressive ability to find a God-thing in every situation and to shine a revealing light on it for her readers without ever slowing the pace or making the reader feel manipulated and preached to. A powerhouse of stellar writing and impressive storytelling skills, Evans does not disappoint. Ever. Highly recommended.
Psychologist, Susanna Daniels works with disturbed teens in a Christian facility in Angel Falls, Texas. A difficult situation with one of the teens has left Susanna overcome with feelings of inadequacy and a lack self confidence. As she sits on a bench in Falls Park she is overcome with tears as she prays about her feelings of failure. Gabe Peretti, cop from Detroit, Michigan is walking his German Shepard in the park. Injured, discouraged, and having had his fill of the violence of big city crimes Gabe is looking for a fresh start. As his dog suddenly tugs on his leash he is alerted to the sobs of this beautiful young woman. Gabe feels a nudge from God, and allows his dog to take the lead as he approaches the park bench. The dog bounds up and places his paws on Susanna's knees, startling her from her tearful prayers. Her eyes then connect with the eyes of a handsome man. Concerned about Susanna, Gabe asks if she cares to talk about her problems, and the two sit together and share their stories. They each go their separate ways without as much as exchanging names. A chance meeting brings them back together, and Gabe volunteers at the youth facility in an attempt to help Susanna. A deep attraction forms between them as they work together with troubled teens. Marianne Evans paints a beautiful and detailed picture of the settings throughout the book. Her characters are very well defined and lovable. She uses beautiful terms to portray the events in the story, bringing people and events to life. This book is filled with action and romance, and was a pleasure to read. I look forward to reading more of Marianne's books. A copy of this book was provided to me by the author for review purposes.
Sit back and meet the people of Angel Falls and be prepared to smile and cry tears of joy!! This first book is just the beginning of something magical
