***This was another one of the books that i bought because the synopsis was interesting. But it sat on my desk in the "to be read" pile for months because each time i picked it up, I just couldn't get into it. This weekend, with nothing else to read, i gave it another chance. I finished it, it is slow and at times boring. It is very tame for a romance book. The undercurrent of this story is about the good and evil in all of us, and how true love can save you. It is a charming book, but not one i would put in my "must read" list. The best part of this book is Sampson, the cat who is an angel.
