Editorial Reviews

Review

"A vagabond musician decides to settle down in a small town and promptly falls in love with her next door neighbor. To her dismay, he turns out to be the local minister. Ms. Webb has done a really lovely job of weaving in the more serious problems relating to the hero's vocation while maintaining a marvelous sense of humor and romance."
                                                            Romantic Times

"Webb has a fresh and humorous voice that makes reading just plain fun."
                                                                   Affaire de Coeur

"Peggy Webb's humor keeps fans coming back."
                                                       Times/Daily, Jackson, TN

"The Donovans of the Delta classics are a heartwarming portrayal of family. Peggy Webb's unique voice and comedic touch make this charming Southern series a true masterpiece. The stories made me laugh out loud and cry. Just amazing."
                  Debra Webb, national bestselling author of The Colby Series

This book made me laugh and smile all throughout it. Not having read the others in the series, I can't judge this one against the rest, but if the others are as light-hearted and hilarious, I look forward to them.

"I'm so glad to find the Donovans of the Delta series re-released in digital format! This book has great characters and great comedy served up with just the right touch of tears. It has a great sense of place, too. I felt as if I were taking a tour through the small Southern town of Pontotoc, MS, and then later, the Peabody in Memphis. This is the first of the series and I look forward to reading all five!"

It was a good book but if you are looking for Christian fiction you will want to look somewhere else.

I love this book! The author does a superb job of bringing a small Southern town to life with very funny secondary characters such as Miss Beulah and Essie Mae, the town's gossips. The baseball and fried chicken scenes had me laughing out loud. And the poignant resolution had me crying. This book is great romantic comedy, but it also explores deep conflicts as Reverend Paul Donovan is torn between his own needs and those of his congregation. Don't miss this lovely, lovey book, the first in the Donovan series!

I saw a comment on here that this is not a religious book and that a reader stopped as soon as she suspected "smutty sex" might be involved. I can assure everyone - NO SMUTTY SEX - in fact, no sex until the end when they're married and then it's only suggested!

The plot contradictory. Way out girl buys house next to gorgeous single vicar/reverend in a small country town. W/O girl has cat, dog and every intention of settling down, but meets dishy vicar and falls for him. Dishy vicar falls for girl. After that, the girl decides that a man of God is not for her and she should hit the road again. What she was going to do with her house and animals is not explained and why she would pass up on such a scrumptious bloke is beyond me.

I won't give a spoiler, but I do think this novel could have had a much deeper thread. Hopefully, attitudes have changed even in small rural towns in the USA, but there must have been quite a harrowing transition period from when the vicar's wife was a pious, do-gooding woman who was the slave of the town to independent women who now have their own careers (vicar's are not well paid even today unless he's a Charismatic)Certainly that was the case here in Australia "back when"

This novel follows the town division over the suitability of the minister's wife and its resolution. Peggy Webb has chosen to write a pleasant read which could have been so much more.

I have given it four stars because it doesn't pretend to be anything more than a light romance and I do intend to read the next in the series.

I started reading it up without really remembering what it was about and was immediately disappointed when I read the hero was a minister and thought oh here we go with the preaching and proverbs but was pleasantly surprised it was kept at a minimum. Granted the hero didn't act as any minister I ever knew but for a fiction contemporary romance novel it worked for me and was entertaining. I liked the two H/h together, loved that pets were mentioned throughout and actually liked the busybody gossip of the town. I was glad to have downloaded it for free and will keep my eye out for other free books by this author. Happy Reading and Enjoy.

I haven't given five stars in a long time, but I simply loved Donovan's Angel (both the book and the character) so much, that I felt I had to give it that rating. In fact, I'd call Paul Donovan absolutely YUMMY (even if he is a minister) since he is so caring and compassionate to everyone and especially so towards Martie. Martie was an absolutely marvelous character; she was so warm-hearted, loving and spontaneous (I adored the Holloween pageant!) that I could see why she was so irresistible to Paul. Let's not forget Martie's wonderful pets, Baby the golden retriever puppy and Aristocat, a haughty Siamese cat who were very much a part of the story. The imagery was absolutely outstanding; it was so vivid and realistic that I would recognize the characters if I met them on the street. The dialogue was very authentic and fun to read and both the writing and editing were done very well and the story flowed smoothly from beginning to end. This story was not sexually explicit but it did show the passion between Paul and Martie. (Don't worry, nothing really happened until they were married.) in fact, I have only one problem with the story and that is that Paul smokes a pipe and this was seen as a good thing. Altogether, reading this story was a rollicking good time and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes romance with a capital "R."

I rarely read romances since lately they all seem to be the same. Boy sees girl, girl flees boy, boy and girl wind up in bed, blah blah blah. Yes there was a lot of sexual tension in this book, however the fact that the try so darn hard NOT to have sex makes this one of the funniest books I have read in a long time. Kudos on showing that romance is not just sex...well worth your time. **Warning:: DO NOT try to eat or drink while reading, choking with laughter is not romantic. <smiles>
