Overview

Millie's Angel by Kim Petersen

When her mother abandons her, Millie is left to pick up the pieces and care for her little brother, Ace. Just as she begins to accept her mother’s disappearance from their lives, Millie discovers the shocking secrets surrounding her birth; leaving her anguished and torn between her feelings for her father.

Through friendships, romantic connections and heartbreak, Millie learns that she is never alone to face the many obstacles life throws her way - for her life becomes centred on the celestial presence of an angel. As Millie becomes a young woman, she learns that in loving herself and directing the train of her thought-world, she holds the key to the Kingdom of Heaven: right here on earth.

When her mother contacts her a decade later, Millie visits with her just in time to realise her own angelic gift, when she finds she is not alone in discovering her mother’s whereabouts. With evil lurking between the cracks in her family, the appearance of Millie’s gift - a phenomenon that will heal and shine brighter than she could ever have imagined - changes her family’s perspectives and the direction of their lives forever.

About the Author

Kim is a mother, wife, daughter, chef, executive house-cleaner, accountant, nurse, counsellor, chief-planner, movie-lover, book-lover, ocean-worshipper, ohhh ... and chocolate-lover! Most days she can be found delegating between any of these roles, and between them she manages to squeeze in random amounts of writing.

Kim possesses an interest in all things meta-physical - our state of being. In learning the great secrets of life and death, and consciously creating our lives. Part of her writing reflects this interest, part of it is just for plain entertainment - she loves to use her imagination - one of the greatest gifts we are given. Either way, she loves the unknown road ahead, and she is excited about her future in writing about beautifully twisted characters that ponder the great mysteries of life and death.

My Disclaimer: I was provided a free copy of this book by the author’s representative. I am providing an honest review for which I am receiving no compensation of any kind. All opinions are fully my own. ~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat Review My Review: ✮✮✮✮ I really wasn’t sure how to classify this book when it came to a genre. It is sort of in a class by itself. Yes, it is a love story and a story about a dysfunctional family. But this is so much more than that. This is a story about good vs. evil, about good driving out evil. Be ware, there are angels among us. Emily and her twins, such a sad story. A story of God showing us the way, but giving us the choice, allowing us self-will. Glen, Millie’s father, finally made it to the light he kept striving to find all along. He had kept fighting against the serpent within him and finally, there was help strong enough to help him cast it out. Damon seemed to know what Millie was all along. And then there was Ace, Millie’s brother. The serpent had its teeth into him when he was young. As he grew, the attachment grew stronger and finally, he became the host and fled. The Bible says, “God has given believers the Holy Spirit to help us on our walk of faith. He will guide us in the right direction.” Throughout Millie’s life, she turned to God for guidance. Sometimes she did it directly and sometimes she turned to Him through her angel. This book is about faith and yet it is still a very comfortable read for anyone, even those not looking for a “Christian” book. Faith is the main focus and you are still not preached at. This is a very uplifting book in many ways. Though is has many very dark times and many bad things happen. It is a book of struggle and pain. The pace of the book is good, though there are some areas where it does bog down with all the sorrow and some predictability. This book comes with my strongest recommendations.

4. stars Lately I’ve been in a rut of putting down books and not picking them up again because I lost interest at one point and just never continued. This was definitely not the case with this book, “Millie’s Angel” by Kim Petersen. From the very beginning the intrigue and drama flowed seamlessly from one page to the next as past and present and ‘spiritual’ came to life in a vivid and sometimes shocking and unexpected way. I enjoyed the creativeness that Petersen used in a somewhat crowded genre and made Millie’s experiences and her romance and her struggles feel fresh, not like something I’ve read a million times. While not perfect, the editing and pacing were decent enough, and the plot was unpredictable enough to make me just *have* to see what would happen next. A real emotional roller-coaster from start to finish and I was impressed with the strong writing. Probably best suited for adults as there are some pretty sexy scenes and some coarse language. But a great, profound message that warms the heart and lifts the spirits. Recommend.

This was my first book from Kim Petersen but I hope it’s not the last. “Millie’s Angel” starts off with some powerful beginning to set the scene and ground the reader in Millie’s world, and her perspective and her terrifying drama (mother’s abuse) from her husband, Glenn. Petersen does a wonderfully convincing job of creating a believable background, in terms of Millie’s tragic, challenging circumstances and her special visits from her angel -which enables the rest of the plot to unfold in an organic, yet powerful manner as we see the rest of the cast go through their ordeals one-by-one. This book does touch on some very heavy subject matters and there should be trigger warnings for the abuse and shocking events. But it's an important message of strength, overcoming adversity, compassion, healing, finding love and peace and moving on. A well written powerful, emotionally moving read that kept me captivated through to the end, which I loved! Recommend for readers of suspense, spiritual/paranormal drama, women’s’ fiction.

"Millie’s Angel” was amazing!!! Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop until I’d finished the whole thing, but it did take me a few nights. Within the first few pages we are intrigued by Millie’s predicament, I particularly enjoyed the author’s “voice” and style of writing—thought the journal angle was a great was to get more inside Millie’s head and heart. The interweaving plotlines were well-crafted and original, and the themes of romance, growing up, life, good and evil, a mother’s love, and that there is something more ‘out there’… and just overall challenges people face were handled with respect and felt authentic, not like contrived drama often used to sell books. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill ‘angel’ story, but still real, poignant, and moving with a wonderful familial/friendship element and a very cool light paranormal/supernatural aspect that was organic and believable. The characters (lead and secondary) were all fleshed out and fully realized, with much more complexity than I see in a lot of books these days. I’d love to read more from Kim Petersen someday. Recommend for fans of New Adult drama and paranormal romance.

I really liked this book, much more than I expected to. The writing is easy to get lost in, and flows seamlessly from one scene to the next. Enjoyed the main character of Amelia “Millie” Anderson, but the supporting ones were just as great! (even the evil Glen, who is a great antagonist here) Adored Damon and Emily and Samantha and the others. Props to Petersen for doing a good job with the dialogue to show the plot unfolding and progressing forward, instead of doing the lazy narrative ‘telling’ so many authors tend to do. We really feel like we are a part of the story and in the characters’ heads (this is told in omniscient 3rd person so we see several POVs) and that’s what I like in a book. I liked how it all wrapped up, and it really gave us a sense of things really coming full circle in a profound and moving way. This novel is broad in themes and isn’t just a simple ‘paranormal’ novel, but that element is definitely present in a very spiritual way. I was almost in tears at a few points and loved that the characters were flawed, and so human. Relatable and real. I really hope that Kim Petersen writes more books in the future. I’d love to read them!

3.5 stars I found myself wavering around a bit while reading “Millie’s Angel” by Kim Petersen. At first I was immediately interested in the story as the author wastes no time in setting up the overall premise and conflict of the book (an abused wife/mother, the young daughter seeing a magical vision) But then the pacing slowed and there were times I felt the story wasn’t as focused as I’d like (seemed to go off in a few directions), with some conversations and scenes maybe weren’t necessary and perhaps could have been eliminated to tighten the narrative some and create more tension… there were times where I was just waiting for something to happen. It takes a while for Millie’s ‘mom’ to leave, and for me that’s when the real drama started to pick up. But I do feel like it definitely got better as it went along, and I liked that we are able to see multiple characters’ perspectives (even though Millie is the MC)). There was great character development and some crazy developments that really threw things for a loop. Glen is absolutely awful, but it is balanced out by other good characters who bring light and love to the mix. It felt unique and unpredictable, always a nice experience, especially in a genre that is fraught with derivative copycats. I enjoyed Petersen’s literary narrative voice, and thought she did a great job of really capturing the spiritual essence of the story and its inspiring message. Recommend for ages 17+ due to some adultish situations and language.

"Millie’s Angel” by Kim Petersen is an engaging novel that captured my attention from the very beginning and never once let it go. I was hooked after the enticing, yet shocking opening and was interested to see how Millie would handle her rough home life situation, and what the magical ‘wings’ were and the presence in her life that is oddly ‘unearthly’, yet loving. The author gets right to the drama to the table and we see just how awful Millie’s father Glen is, and how he makes life difficult for his wife and children. After she leaves, Mille is faced with more challenges, including but not limited to dating, falling in love, friends, caring for her brother, and learning the truth about her parentage and the magical presence of “Samantha”. The narrative and dialogue propelled the story at a good pace for the most part, and I enjoyed the characters and especially how they played into the romantic drama. Millie and Damon’s relationship is interesting to watch develop, even if maybe not how we hope. Mille and her family’s journey is anything but predictable and they face many obstacles. How they end up is not for me to reveal, but their experience is a memorable and impactful one. Good pacing and lovely, literary narrative that flows well and keeps us engaged throughout. Could benefit from some light proofreading. But overall a really good read that I’d recommend to fans of women’s fiction and spiritual drama.

"Millie’s Angel” by Kim Petersen is definitely my kind of book. I adore the whole ‘magical realism” aspect, the real-life dramatic situations, and how events from the past reappear to cause imbalance in current life and how it shifts/tests relationships and spurs personal growth. While these are admittedly familiars trope in literature, I thought Kim Petersen did a great job of making the storyline feel fresh and original, and best of all, completely believable even with the slightly ‘magical’ elements with the appearance of an “angel” throughout (whose real identity is very cool!). She also gives it a certain profound and spiritual element that makes it much more than just a ‘drama’ or a “romance” story - it is a story of a life, and overcoming adversity in life and relationships despite the odds and how the past affects the present, and how love can protect and save you and someone is always watching out for you. There are some shocking twists, some unexpected revelations and some sad events. But it is also uplifting and the ending was sweet and satisfying---I liked how it all wrapped up, even if a bit bittersweet. Some steamy scenes and mild language but appropriate for mature teens on up.
