We meet Kate just after she's accidentally overdosed on drugs and on her way to meet her guardian angel. The first moments are a bit confuse, but then Kate's a bit confused herself. But her quick acceptance of what's going on and the assignment she has to fulfill make it clear that she's got a head on her shoulders and can adjust. It was easy to like her right away and sympathize with her situation. I also loved the light air despite an otherwise serious situation and enjoyed the back and forth with her awesome guardian angel (who I'm hoping just happens to be my guardian angel too.) The unique plot in this story grabbed my attention right away. Kate needs to not only figure out how to save her assignment, Jake, but learn a lot more about herself in the process. I, personally, would have liked to have gotten to know the pre-dead Kate a little more, so that it'd be easier to see how she changes ( a clearer comparison). But her determination to the the boy is heart-warming as well as the self-discovery of her own heart that she makes on the way. There's a lot of friendship and hope packed into these pages. Even if this is Kate's chance to prove herself, she receives quite a bit of support from the angel world. She makes friends easily while on her mission and learns to watch out for others. Even the subject of substance abuse is handled with care and doesn't take the hard nose-dive that one so often sees in literature, but rather shows the dangers even light experimenting can cause. The romance itself is sweet, never edging on 'hot' and builds on friendship. I felt it could have been built out a little bit more (more tension) and was a little disappointed how Kate handled it. Her sudden decision of how to deal with her own feelings didn't seem to match with the weight of her task, and I wondered if 'heaven' would reprimand her in some way. There was just a bit of wobble in the reasoning for me here. But even if there were a few inconsistencies and unanswered logic bunnies (especially at the end), I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. There's several good messages in the pages, a ton of good feelings, and the perfect amount of light humor to make it easy to fall in love with the characters and hope they somehow find their happy endings. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
