Handsome, single, and wealthy, Houstonian Tom Shoemaker must decide if he should give up his successful business to assume a country pastorate. When a blonde, blue-eyed, dyslexic angel arrives from The Heavenlies to locate a mate for Tom by Valentine's Day, she's havoc in outlandish red stilettos. But despite numerous goofs in her efforts-many caused by her passion for eccentric footwear the other angels would never dare adorn-love is indeed in the air.
After Marcy Montgomery's husband was killed in Afghanistan, she relocated to a small, central Texas town with Hope, her five-year-old daughter. When Sarah accidentally introduces Tom to Marcy, she sets about discovering if the two would make suitable mates. The Superiors certainly wouldn't approve of a romantic link between the wrong people. But Hope wants a father, and when the five-year-old meets Tom, she immediately decides he is the perfect candidate.
Is Tom the right one for Marcy? Or has Sarah made her biggest blunder of all? Oh merciful heavens! What's an angel to do?

How much of a life is guided by forces beyond our own? In this romance, Sarah, a very imperfect inexperienced angel, is charged with helping handsome, single Houstonian, Tom Shoemaker, find his true love by Valentine’s Day. Perhaps not an insurmountable task, given his sterling qualities, but the only personable and pretty young woman who matches his virtues is a widow and a mother, a stranger to him. Somehow Sarah, who makes one mistake after another, must rise to the task. Challenges aplenty abound, one being the need for Tom decide if he has a calling to assume his deceased father’s country pastorate. This light and charming novel, Christian in its foundation, is a pleasant break from our own reality in which we must face wars, murders, famine, and every other type of iniquity. Sarah is certainly a force to be reckoned with.
Sarah, a directionally challenged little angel, gets her first assignment on earth. It’s mid-January and she needs to find a partner for Tom Shoemaker by Valentine’s Day. He’s a wealthy businessman in Houston but he’s been asked to fill his late father’s position in the pulpit of a small, rural church. Sarah intervenes as Tom takes his mother, Allison, to The Pie Palace. Due to Sarah’s ravenous appetite she turns herself into a human so she may indulge in earthly food. Playing with the sugar packets she drops the white powder on the floor. When Sarah crouches to clean up her mess, she trips the waitress, Marcy, who dumps a full tray of food into Tom’s lap. Marcy and her young daughter, Hope, live alone in the small town after the death in Afghanistan of Marcy’s husband. She is struggling to keep her job and raise her daughter. Through Allison’s unexpected invitation to dinner and bungling Sarah’s attempts to keep the couple together a relationship develops. Sarah has lost her instructions on how she should complete the mission and takes on more responsibility, tells some lies and due to her fondness for cheeseburgers finds herself in hilarious situations. Her desire to wear stilettos is one of her many endearing qualities. The elders want a decision from Tom on the ministry and his confusion causes Marcy to question their relationship. Will they be together in time for Valentine’s Day? Will Sarah please her superiors in The Heavenlies and be allowed to return?
Cute book! This is a sweet love story, engineered and told from the perspective of a klutzy, goofy, but charming angel bent on matchmaking. If you enjoy Christian romance, this is a good one you, your daughter, and your mother can read without embarrassment. I thought I had things figured out, but there's a twist toward the end that completely took me by surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed this flight of fancy.
