I couldn't put it down, and am looking forward to reading her next book.
Fun, but not frothy, the characters have depth to them and convincing challenges to overcome. The main protagonist's gift is to see through lies, whether they be mundane or magical in nature. In childhood, it meant that magic tricks never entertained, but an adult, maintaining romantic relationships are a special challenge. The mundane world treated her gift like a psychosis, so when the story unfolds she's already had a lifetime of doubting her own sanity, making the reluctant heroine so much more believable.
Astute readers will also be rewarded by clues hidden in the details. The t-shirts worn by a particular fallen angel constantly entertained me with movie references from Star Wars, The Princess Bride, and Ghostbusters. Aside from speaking to my inner-nerd, touches like this avoid being overly campy because the behavior is consistent for an angel who gets overly involved with humans.
This is not a children's story, but well suited for high school and adult. The protagonist is college age, so there is romance, ex-boyfriend awkwardness, and sex in the story. In today's crowded market, it is always fun to find a new talent early in their career. Clearly the first in a series, I look forward to reading Erika Gardner's the next installment when it becomes available.
