Description

It’s been a year since Ivy’s boyfriend, Tristan, died. They’ve both moved on—Tristan to the other side of the afterlife, and Ivy to sweet, dependable Will. Now Ivy’s heading to Cape Cod, hoping to leave the horror of last summer behind. She wants nothing more than to lie on the beach, sip lemonade, and hang out with her friends.

But then a car crash ends Ivy’s life.

As she floats to the beyond, looking down on the life she’s left behind, Tristan breathes life back into her with a passionate kiss. She wakes up in the hospital, surrounded by Will and her family, but all she can think about is the love that she lost.

But memories aren’t all that’s come back from the past. And this time, Ivy’s not sure love will be enough to save her.

My review

16 years after the release of the original trilogy Kissed by an angel, Elizabeth Chandler will release a fourth novel in the series. It seems to be a the first book of a new series because of the thrilling ending. Nevertheless, it’s a sequel to the three books, so you have to read them before because there are lots of references in the novel.

One year after Tristan’s death, Ivy doesn’t forget her love for him at all, even if she dates Will. When she has a car crash, she is saved by Tristan but nobody believes her. In the hospital, she meets an amnesiac boy, named himself Guy. Ivy wants to save him even if he must be dangerous for her. Does she has learned anything from the past with Gregory?

The book is as short as the previous ones but there is a great dynamic in the story, there are continuous events, the rhythm is not slow, we are never bored while reading. There is a cute romance with Ivy but the tone of the story is also unexpectedly less cheesy compared to the first books.

If the main characters are very interesting with a new story built, the secondary ones are less sympathetic, especially the girls which look like Suzanne in worst. And for those who like it, there is a new cat, even if it’s not Ivy’s. 😉

I don’t know if this sequel was necessary but I actually enjoyed it and I’m curious to read the sequel if there will be one.

    Ah ah ah you know how I love Elizabeth Chandler… :p So you already know my position about this book ! Kissed by an angel had a very good beginning but she spoiled everything. I won’t read an other book of this author.
