It seems like all great literature revolves around a love story. Romeo and Juliet, Catherine and Heathcliff, Helen and Paris, Scarlet and Rhett to name a few. There is something about a good love story that draws in readers (most of them teenage girls no doubt).
Even though Romance is in itself a genre, there are all sorts of different subdivisions, ranging from the super intense romance melodramas to the light-hearted teen love stories that you can read in one afternoon. One of the more popular genres for romance nowadays is this odd supernatural variety where the girl falls in love with a part-human, part-monster teenage heartthrob with whom she must overcome an evil so that they may be together.
Usually I don’t fall for these kind of novels because-while it may be fun to imagine an alternate reality where I meet and fall in love with a fallen angel or vampire-I would rather read a story that is believable.
So it seems strange that I would fall for a book like Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler, which centers around the love story of one girl and her ghost boyfriend.
Ivy always believed in angels, until the night that her boyfriend Tristan was killed in a horrible automobile accident. But even after this horrible tragedy, Ivy still feels his presence in her home and at school. Everyone thinks she is crazy, but Ivy knows that her deceased love is still with her.
Tristan’s ghost is haunting Ivy because he knows that the crash that killed him was not an accident; whoever caused the crash was out to kill Ivy, not Tristan. With help from a fellow spirit, Tristan finds new abilities that will help him protect Ivy while searching for clues that will lead him to his killer. He would do anything to keep her safe. But if he succeeds, and Ivy’s killer is put behind bars, then his mission on earth will be fulfilled and he won’t be able to stay on earth so as to be with Ivy.
Elizabeth Chandler effortlessly blends murder and mystery with a true to life romance to create a thrilling novel that will leave Edward Cullen fans begging for more.
