I enjoyed this book and I found the mystery in the book interesting. I did find a few errors in the story, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment in reading the book and I wondered if I imagined what I was reading. For instance there was one passage where Sara finished her wine at dinner and in the next paragraph, she was swirling her wine around in the glass to take a drink, no big deal to the storyline. In Fallen, we have two murders that are just alike but take place years apart. One in 1849 and one in current day. Gabriel is a fallen Angel and it was in 1849 that his mistress Anne, was murdered and all of the evidence pointed to him. However, he was found not guilty. Current day, Sara Michaels, comes to work with Gabriel, he is writing a true crime novel, her Mother, Jessie Michaels, was murdered the same way as Anne. Gabriel and Sara hope to solve the murders but share a mutual attraction-(Gabriel being a fallen Angel can't allow himself to touch Sara or fall in love with her, for her own sake) There are other fallen Angels in this book, but all of these fallen Angels are now known as Demons, can Gabriel and Sara solve the murders before it is to late? A good mystery and urban fantasy, and paranormal romance.

In 1849 New Orleans Anne Donovan loves John Thiroux and would do anything for him even die. John is actually the fallen angel Gabriel St. John sent to earth to help humans, but failed to cope with mortal suffering and turned to absinthe to drown his woes. When Anne violently dies, Gabriel is unsure whether he killed her as he was intoxicated at the time. He pledged to his heavenly boss to remain sober even as he is acquitted by a jury of his not peers of the homicide. --- In present day New Orleans, true-crime author Gabriel is stunned by the parallels between the murder of Jessie Michaels and that of his Annie. Once again the accused Dr. Rafe Marino in this case is exonerated after a trial. Jesse¿s daughter Sara Michaels has left Florida to uncover the truth about her mother¿s murder Gabriel plans to write a book on the subject. These two wounded souls collaborate seeking peace from closure, but neither knows how connected the mid nineteenth century murder and the recent one are to one another. --- This is an engaging murder mystery investigative fantasy starring two angst laden individuals seeking solace by bringing rest to their beloved dead. The story line is fast-paced as the duo follow clues in trying to solve two homicides. Although the climax seems to have fallen from nowhere, fans will enjoy Erin McCarthy¿s fine tale. --- Harriet Klausner

I quite like Erin McCarthy's NASCAR books, so this was a real disappointment. There were just so many flaws with the internal logic of the book. For example, the hero's situation is such that he can't touch anyone because they become addicted to him. But in the midst of worrying about that happening, he's casually touching our heroine all over the place, and then LETS HER HAVE SEX WITH HIM, because...as long as she does all the work it doesn't count? Maybe it only makes sense to angels. And the heroine is not exempt from the crazy! In one scene she (a forensic SCIENTIST) needs to know whether absinthe could cause violence. So she drinks a bunch. Yeah, because that is a legitimate scientific experiment. I mean, you'd think she might consider variances in body chemistry, psychological state, etc.--or check to see whether there have been large-scale studies, which might actually produce a statistically significant result. It's moronic. These kinds of things just make me pull back and go "WHAT?!?" and I end up not enjoying the book.

Fallen angel turned demon, Gabriel St. John, had spent the last 150 years paying penance for his weakness in falling prey to the vice of gluttony, becoming an absinthe addict and possibly even a murderer. When Gabriel discovers another murder almost identical to the one he may have committed, he requests the aide of the victim¿s daughter, forensic analyst Sara Michaels. But when Sara comes to assist in his investigation he finds himself falling for her, and for an already fallen angel, nothing could be more painful than falling once again.Having only read one other contemporary romance by this author, I wasn't entirely sure how well she would do in the paranormal genre. However, "Fallen" was quite the pleasant surprise for me. This book actually touched on quite a few things I've always found interesting; from the fallen angel/demon mythos to absinth addictions. I even enjoyed Sara's request for a rendition of Kiss' Beth performed on the piano as opposed to Gabriel's classical piano playing. I liked both of the characters in this novel and found the slow progression of their physical relationship more romantic the increasingly usual, "they meet and immediately fall into bed" storyline. Gabriel certainly isn't one of those overbearing manly men types being more artistic and Sara wasn't a complete hard-ass, kick-butt type lady which was a pleasant a departure from what seems to be the norm nowadays. This difference in personality from so many of the paranormals I've been reading was something I kind of enjoyed. Although this book is part of a series, it certainly stands exceedingly well as a stand alone story. There are no lead ins plotwise or secondary characters you would expect to find in the next novel and it seemed very self-contained. I wouldn't have expected that it was part of a series if I hadn't known otherwise. I certainly wouldn't hesitate recommending this book for paranormal romance readers looking for something outside the vampire realm.

Pleasantly surprised. Bought on a whim and it was a good read. Will look for more in the series.
