Mountain Angel is the second book that I’ve read by Ms. O’Connell and she isn’t afraid to tackle difficult situations. Aeli and Pat are both in need of healing and together, they find someone who understands the trauma and the questions that are left in its wake. Readers know Aeli’s story from the beginning but Pat’s story takes a bit to be revealed. Once it was revealed, my heart broke for Pat as he still struggled to move forward. Their romance is very sweet. Their banter made me laugh. I cheered for them by the end. I enjoyed all their supporting characters and look forward to seeing them get their own stories in the series. While Mountain Angel is the second book in the series, you do not need to read the first book, First Instinct, in order to enjoy it (although I do highly recommend it). I highly recommend Mountain Angel.
Mountain Angel is available in eBook and audiobook
when her fiance Bryce tried to rape her and her friend Adam, in order to save her, killed Bryce, his own best friend!! It was as if something snapped that night and Adam was never the same. He became obsessive of Aelissm and would not leave her alone despite her repeated warnings and pleadings.
Out of options and running away from Adam and her nightmares of that horrible night, she comes back to the one place she always felt was her home, Northstar in Montana.
Seeing Adam's talent at finding Aelissm every time she became sure that no one could find her, her uncle Bill who is the Sheriff in another county, requests Patrick O'Neil, one of his deputies and also a good friend to take a vacation to Northstar and protect her until Adam is caught. Patrick or Pat has his own demons to take care of and he is a haunted man running from his nightmares.
Can he protect Aelissm?
Will Adam find Aelissm once again and what will happen when he does?
Can Patrick overcome his fears and let go of the past to accept his feelings for Aelissm?
Can Aelissm stop Patrick when the time comes for him to leave and convince him of her love for him?
A soulful story set in the beautiful Montana. This is a vacation where you don't have to actually travel to the place to feel the beauty and peace of it all. The author succeeds in creating a vivid picture in the reader's mind and it's as if we are there seeing everything and feeling every shift in the weather. :)
The relationship between the characters is heart warming and expertly portrayed. The sister like love and true companionship between June and Aelissm; the no-returns-required love between June and her foster son, Luke; the budding romance and emotional bond between Aelissm and Pat; also the support and love shared among the people in the close- knit community in Northstar is beautifully sketched and portrayed.
The only downside is the pace of the story which is not the fast paced turn of events one would expect after reading the blurb. Nevertheless it's a good story with plenty of suspense and takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride. The cozy cabin set in the wilderness and the peace of the woods of Montana with the snow covered mountains is the best place to heal and go to, to forget all our worries and get engrossed in the love story of Pat and Aelissm who live there!
I give Mountain Angel a 4 out of 5 and recommend the book for a lazy day or when you want to leave the buzz of the city and travel to heaven on earth where the air is clean, weather unpredictable and where their is only happiness and love among the residents who are willing to lay down their lives to save one of their own!
The next book in the series, Summer Angel is definitely on my "To-Read" list now. :)
This review is also available on blog Njkinny's World of Books..
She ran to Montana to live with her grandparents to hide. Her uncle is the Sheriff in Washington and he gets one of his friends and a detective to go to Montana and try to find the creep and to protect his niece. So we have two wounded souls running from life and afraid to open up to anyone else.
This is a very good interesting story. They start off trying to help each other and protect her. Of course, there is a happy every after and a very good read. I definitely recommend it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 9/30/2020

I also thought that some of the characters' way of living was frankly, unbelievable.
Who builds and lives in a cabin with a roof and walls of corrugated iron in Colorado? I appreciate it is a cheap building material but it really loses a lot of heat and also acts as a heat sink when it is hot. One way of torturing someone is to leave them in the sun in an iron box.
And the winters are very fierce -
More than 300 inches of snow at the mountain resorts
An average of 16.5 inches of precipitation (8 at lower elevations and 23 at higher elevations)
33 percent average humidity
First snow usually arrives in September (though it usually snows somewhere in the state every month, except maybe August) so at least 8 months of the year can be considered winter (See the Official Guide to Colorado).
2. live in a trailer in the mountains. ie another form of iron box but have a greenhouse! Just imagine the amount of heating that would require...
3. Use only a wood burner for heating. Now I imagine that not everywhere has electricity but to use a wood burner you need wood - so you fell trees - again(!). And unless you replant 2 or 3 for everyone you fell - and manage the area and .. well we all know what happens when areas are de-forested.
So apart from that did i find the angels of the title? Not really. The story was light and not well developed. It lacked depth of characterisation and reality.
The two main characters, Pat and Aelissm, are both battling their own demons from relationships gone wrong. Pat is sent by his boss, Aeli’s uncle, to protect her from a possible stalker.
Being in Aeli’s home, in small town Montana, gives Pat the breathing space he needs to finally address his problems. In doing so, he helps Aeli to move forward too when romance blossoms.
The issues of depression, abusive relationships, stalking and sexual assault are all dealt with in a mature, sensitive way. They are integral to the story and don’t come across as sensationalist at all. The thread of romance and small town community spirit tie this story together beautifully. A really enjoyable read.
All in the all the book was ok but I don't think I would recommend it
I've noticed that at the moment there are 3 more books out in this series Summer Angel, Wild Angel and Twice Shy so I'll be checking them out.
If you're looking for a gentle, slow building romance then this could be worth checking out.
