Kissed By An Angel is a GREAT read for any fans of romance and mystery. I wasn't aware that this THICK, almost daunting novel was actually three books put into one volume until I got it and read the small notation at the bottom of the book. It was scary at first, but then I realized the font was fairly large and that seemed to take the edge off the disheartening thickness of this book. You could seriously throw it at someone and injure them....BADLY!
Book size aside, Kissed By Angel was an EXTREMELY easy and absorbing book to read. It's one of those books that is SO hard to put down that you wind up reading late at night even while you are struggling to keep your eyes open!

The book centers on Ivy. She has just moved into town with her mother and 8 year old brother, Phillip after her mother becomes engaged to one of the town's wealthiest and most noteable patrons. Ivy soon finds herself living in a giant home with her new family, which includes her privileged new-stepbrother, Gregory. Ivy is a somewhat spiritual character, with a strong belief system pitted on guardian angels watching over her and the ones she loves. She has a collection of Angel statues in her room, with the two most special of them being her Water Angel, and another angel she calls Tony. At times, Ivy's "angel comments" were a little weird and that would be my biggest fault with the book and ultimately the reason why I denoted one star off my review rating. I just have a hard time picturing a NORMAL teenage girl thinking things like, "WATER ANGEL, PLEASE HELP ME!" which made it a little too melodramatic and weird at times. But, once you get past that specific little quirk of our main-character, everything is smooth sailing!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Originally published separately over a decade ago, this trilogy is being re-released in one complete book and what a book it is. The three books are KISSED BY AN ANGEL, THE POWER OF LOVE, SOULMATES.

In KISSED BY AN ANGEL, the very opening of the book covers the accident which Tristan dies. It also says this on the back cover, so it's no secret. It's right after that the author goes back and begins the story with Ivy meeting Tristan. It's the typical first love story. I was surprised out how many characters are introduced and not once did I have difficulty keeping them straight. When this first book ends, it's way too abrupt. If I had not had the second book, I would have been steam rolling mad. I mean, there is no ending. It cuts off.

THE POWER OF LOVE is where Tristan tries to reconnect with Ivy. Because of her loss, she no longer believes in angels. Why should she? They didn't protect her true love. Tristan is now an angel with a mission. He's not alone though. He has an angel helping him too, but this angel isn't exactly angelic.

He becomes aware that the accident was no accident at all. The only problem is who was the target? This love story quickly turns into a mystery, full of suspense. At the end of this book, the reader is again left hanging. Is Ivy going to live or die?

In SOULMATES, we discover she is in fact going to live, but everyone, including Ivy thinks she tried to commit suicide by walking in front of a moving train. As far as the world is concerned, her younger brother saved her. He did, but with the help of Tristan.

She will finally open her heart enough to believe once again in angels, thus connecting again with Tristan. In this book, not all the characters will walk away. So will and some will die.

Format: Paperback
Artistically composed to keep you in suspense page after page. Very clever to have all three books in one; this made it so convenient to not miss a scene. I tensed up everytime the angel Tristan tried to manifest his presence....as if he needed my help! This book is about love, deceit, greed, jealousy, choices, betrayal, danger, action, and so much more! It leaves you aching throughout and then towards the end, satisfaction!!!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When I requested this book, I had no idea it was a 700+ page trilogy. I thought I was only receiving, 'Kissed by an Angel." I was delighted to find that it contained 'The Power of Love,' and 'Soulmates,' as well, completing the series. I was also pleased that the type was large and easy on the eyes, which is not often the case, when three novels are combined in one book. It was, however, a little awkward to hold.

As I began reading, I was suddenly transported to 1990, when I sat in the theatre sobbing at the performances of Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg, in 'Ghost.' The themes between 'Ghost,' and Chandler's trilogy are so striking, that I had to wonder if this is where she found her inspiration for this trilogy, copyrighted in 1995. After all, 'Ghost' was a tremendously popular, Oscar winning film, that remains one of the most beautiful love stories of our time.

The only significant difference I see is that this trilogy is directed toward a YA audience, with teenage characters, while 'Ghost' had a broader age group appeal. In both scenarios, we find the loss of a male partner, a true love...a soul-mate, under violent circumstances.

As in 'Ghost,' Tristan's spirit remains close to Ivy's side, while he seeks numerous ways to alert her that her life is in danger. Again, Ivy is much like Demi's character, in wanting to deny Tristan's existence, which leads to countless near misses in recognizing his ethereal presence.

Ivy is angry that Tristan was taken from her. So angry, that she loses her faith, particularly in Angels which previously were a source of comfort.
