Meet the Author

India knew from age nine that writing would be her passion. Since then she's discovered many more, but none quite so fulfilling as creating a world, a character, or a moment and watching them evolve into something complex and compelling. She has lived in three countries and four American states, is a dual British and American citizen, and currently lives at the base of the Scottish Highlands in a village so small its main attraction is a red phone box. In other words: paradise.

    An Amazing Start to a New Series

    Although ghosts and angels have been done before, Drummond finds a way to keep things fresh and bring something new to the table. This is mainly accomplished through the main character, Zoey.

    Zoey is an intelligent, witty and sassy heroine with a great deal of spunk. She knows her limits and she doesn't overestimate herself. She isn't afraid to ask for help and isn't always jumping to conclusions - which sets her apart from most heroines in this genre. She is also more kind than cut throat, which again, is hugely different from most other heroines.

    These differences make Zoey easy to relate to. Although she obviously isn't a normal person, but she acts like one. She isn't some crazed amazon warrior chick or a magic-welding witch, she is just Zoey. She thinks like the average person, feels like the average person and acts like the average person. It's completely refreshing and really brings the character to life. I took to her instantly and was always on her side. She is the kind of character that you will love to cheer on, no matter who sort of mess she gets herself into.

    Zoey's love interest Alexander however, is anything but ordinary. He doesn't quite understand humans, but he desperately wants to. Every paranormal romance about angels that I've read has painted them as unforgiving and violent creatures. While Alexander is certainly capable of that, he always treats Zoey with care, patience and kindness. Their relationship is definitely unique and it incredibly entertaining to watch it unfold.

    There is a LOT going on in this book. There are a ton of different storylines and facts to keep track off and it sometimes makes it difficult to focus. I commend Drummond for trying to keep the story interesting, but there was so much happening that things began to get a bit jumbled in my mind. I kept forgetting the little details that allow you to piece the story/mystery together because there was just so much to keep track of.

    But in all honestly, that is really just a minor complaint. I truly enjoyed Ordinary Angels and cannot wait to see what becomes of Zoey and Alexander next!

    Cute Read

    Zoe talks to dead people. To be more specific she talks to the spirits of dead people who have not yet moved on. This allows her to feel comfortable with the unusual events in her life, such a sharing a house with a her dead grandmother. One thing it doesn't prepare her for is looking up from her desk to discover that the new office mailman is an angel. A really gorgeous angel.

    Alexander has interfered with the mailman's life so must take his place. He doesn't bargain on meeting and falling in love with Zoe. His superiors bring him to task; interfering with a human's life is forbidden in the angel society.

    Another twist occurs when Zoe's spirit friend Henry disappears, along with the collection of keys Zoe has given him over the years. From this point on Zoe's life revolves round searching for Henry, falling deeper in love with Alexander and helping him fight his case with his superiors. Another problem is Grandma. She doesn't like Alexander, or rather, she doesn't like angels.

    Ordinary Angels is an unusual book. Set in the paranormal genre, it has humour, danger and spicy romance. Zoe could be described as feisty. She allows no one to get too close to her, except for her best friend. Somehow Alexander breaks through her reserve. Her feeling for him at first confuses her until she admits her love for him. But how can an angel and a human possibly have a relationship?

    Alexander is naive when it comes to how humans behave. At times he finds Zoe's explanations unfathomable, but this doesn't stop him falling in love with her. Aware his superiors decision could change his whole future he tries to distance himself from Zoe without success.

    Unfortunately, Alexander's confusion made him weak. He relies on others and doesn't succeed as a strong male character. Zoe tends to overshadow him, and this detracted slightly from my enjoyment of the book.

    Ordinary Angles encompasses the love story of a couple from two totally different backgrounds. Both have their own problems with the relationship and with their lives. Their problems inexplicably entwine with each other to end in a surprising climax which ties up all the loose ends.

    It's a book I felt was worth reading for the humour and the intrigue as Zoe followed the clues to find Henry. Quite a pleasant read.

    Definitely Worth a Read

    I am not a fan of paranormal romance, but hey, a friend of mine recommended this, so I checked it out. To my surprise, it was actually pretty good! Both romantic and suspenseful, the story introduces a whole new conception of angels and ghosts. India Drummond keeps the tension rising, and for those who like that sort of thing, there's plenty of steamy angel-human intercourse (you have been warned.) Definitely worth a read.
