Book Description

The "thoroughly addictive" bestselling first novel in the Erin Solomon Pentalogy, awarded the AIA Seal of Quality and the B.R.A.G. Medallion for excellence in independent publishing.  

Jonestown. The Solar Temple. Heaven's Gate. In the summer of 1990, the Payson Church of Tomorrow joins the ranks of those infamous cult suicides when thirty-four members burn to death on a small island off the coast of Maine. At ten years old, Payson member Erin Solomon watches helplessly as the church and its congregation are reduced to ash and embers. 

More than twenty years later, Erin is an accomplished investigative journalist when she receives word that she has inherited Payson Isle... and all its ghosts. She returns to Maine to learn the truth behind the tragedy that has haunted her since childhood, aided by the rakish mentor who's stood by her side since she was a teenager, her trusty mutt Einstein, and a mysterious stranger with his own dark past. 
Soon, Erin is enmeshed in violence, conspiracy, and scandal, as she fights to unearth the secrets of the Payson Church of Tomorrow -- secrets someone will kill to keep buried.

"If you like mysteries with a strong plot filled with dark secrets and murder, and a kick a** setting, along with a romantic-triangle involving two vastly different men, then you'll love this book. -- DV Berkom, Author of the Amazon-bestselling Kate Jones thrillers

Editorial Reviews


"Jen Blood has created my favorite narrator of the decade: the whip-smart, sassy, and delightfully stubborn Erin Solomon. The story she tells--with its hidden turns, dry humor, enthralling pace, persuasive complexity, and vivid setting--is absolutely unforgettable. Blood is one hell of a writer." -- Lewis Robinson, award-winning author of Water Dogs and Officer Friendly and Other Stories

"Creepy, tense, and thoroughly addictive... I loved everything about this book." -- Kindle Book Review

"The pacing is flawless, building steadily to a riveting climax. The characters are complex, likable and expertly drawn. If you enjoy contemporary mysteries, then you don't want to pass on this one." -- Tahlia Newland, Awesome Indies Book Reviews

"All the Blue-Eyed Angels is a stellar debut from a talented author. Jen Blood has crafted an action and suspense packed story with a conflicted and clever sleuth, a moody setting, multiple mysteries, a little romance, and plenty of twists." -- Susan Vaughan, award-winning author of Primal Obsession

From the Author

I love mysteries, and always have. It started with Scooby Doo, and carried on through to Trixie Belden (I always preferred her to Nancy Drew -- Trixie felt a little more accessible to me, more willing to dive in and get her hands dirty for the sake of the next clue), old hardback copies of The Power Boys and The Hardy Boys and even Hawaii 5-0... Once I hit puberty, I discovered -- and quickly devoured -- those old Gothic romantic mysteries: Victoria Holt and Daphne DuMaurier, Phyllis Whitney, Emily Bronte... I lived for creepy settings and sexual tension, damsels in distress and the brooding men who saved them.

It seemed only natural, then, that I would choose to study and pursue a career as a mystery writer. It took over a decade and countless incarnations before I came up with the final draft of All the Blue-eyed Angels, a hybrid of the best mysteries I've loved over the years -- mysteries where character is key, the wit is sharp, the settings dark and creepy, and sex and ghosts and all those things that go bump in the night lurk just below the surface.

I've been thrilled with the response Angels and the other books in the Solomon series have gotten from readers, particularly when I hear how much they love the characters of Erin Solomon and her comrades in arms. With four novels now out and others on the way, I am grateful to the authors who came before me, and to the countless hours I spent reading dusty old mysteries in the back of our small-town library, living vicariously through damsels in distress and spunky heroines alike. Good books continue to be a magical form of escapism for me, and I hope that I provide the same kind of escape for my own readers.

Jen Blood

3.0 out of 5 stars For those who like cliffhangers June 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While I don't mind a bit of an unresolved issue in a novel, I do appreciate a satisfying conclusion to the main plot or theme. I didn't get that with All the Blue-Eyed Angels. This book raises a lot of questions. Unfortunately, it doesn't answer them.

After reading through the entire book with its emphasis on who started the fire and why, it ended without answering those and with even raising more questions. As I was nearing the end of the book, I thought the author would have quite a job to wrap up the story in the final chapters. I realized when I got to the last page that the author's resolution was for the reader to purchase the next book.

I think if the author had labeled this as Part One, I would have skipped it since I prefer novels that can stand alone even if the main character is part of a series. Since there are so many books and so little time to enjoy them, I do appreciate having such facts up front.

3.0 out of 5 stars horrible LACK of an ending November 11, 2012
By dreamon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this was actaully a 5 star book for me until the last page. The ending (or lack thereof) is severe enough to knock it down 2 whole stars. There are a lot of characters with a lot of issues going on in this book. It is complicated to follow a lot of characters with a lot of changing plots and every chapter flip flops back and forth between the present and the past. I am fine with all of that....I like a book that makes you think. You certainly won't be guessing the ending. Thus the problem. You turn the page expecting the rest of the story and there is none. Not one of 3 different major storyline issues going on in the book is resolved. At all. All you get it "to be continued in book II...the end". Whaaaat?

3.0 out of 5 stars Unfair ending June 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I understand that if you are writing a series you usually need to have some continuity between books. But this book ended so abruptly with only one or 2 of the many questions answered I actually checked to make sure I was really at the end.

Based on what I have read so far I am not sure I want to continue reading any further offerings in the series. I would hate to get through the next book and STILL not know what the heck was going on. I enjoyed the character Diggs, but I don't know if Erin was likeable enough for me to invest any more time in her story. I kind of liked her self centered mom more than her. At least Kat wasn't so needy. It was in interesting premise, the cult angle was great and could have been done more indepth. Overall the characters and lack of answers made it less than enjoyable though.

***Spoiler Alert***

This is the first time I have read one of Jen Blood's Novels and I already absolutely love her writing style.

Erin Solomon returns to her childhood home of Littlehope after inheriting Payson Island but of course not everybody are as they appear. She is there to solve the mystery of a fire but there is plenty of story packed in along the way.

I loved everything about this book. Mystery novel's are my favourite Genre, I have read a fair few and this certainly lived up to my expectations.

The book is thoroughly written, the characters are well developed and I was completely engaged throughout the book.

There are some creepy parts in the book too which made for tense reading but this is everything I look for in a book. There are also some elements of humour and a complicated love triangle too but the overall setting is dark and powerful.

The story has a lot of unexpected plot twists that will keep you turning the pages in astonishment.

I read this book in two sittings as I had to know how the story would unfold.

I loved the main character Erin Solomon and I particularly enjoyed the way the story was set in Erin's past and present.

I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who likes a good mystery with a slightly different style. Nothing predictable here!

My advice would there are some spine chilling moments so if you're easily scared don't read before bedtime! There are also some stomach churning parts so if you don't have a strong stomach beware!

The only thing is I can not wait for the next installment of the Erin Solomon series, I will definitely buying the second book.

A strong 4 stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous new Mystery writer! I'm hooked March 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
All the Blue-Eyed Angels grabbed me from the first few lines and wouldn't let me go. It was fun to find such a well-written debut novel, and well-written it is. Filled with great characterization, pacing, and description- this book was a joy to read. If you like mysteries with a strong plot filled with dark secrets and murder, and a kick a** setting, along with a romantic-triangle involving two vastly different men, then you'll love this book.

Will definitely buy the sequel.

2.0 out of 5 stars cliffhanger March 20, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I liked the story, it is well told and keeps the reader interested and waiting for the big secret to be revealed. Who is behind the church fire and why? Unfortunately, to find out one has to buy the next book in the series, or rather the next four - part five still seems to be dealing with the same subject. It is unsatisfying to have read the entire book without a conclusion. I am not going to continue this series - cliffhangers are a dealbreaker for me.
