Carol Marlene Smith

Author Carol Marlene Smithabout this book: Angel Walker was alone after divorcing her abusive husband, James. But in the summer of 1995 her life was about to change. Spending time alone in her home in Toronto with only the memories of her little students and a flower garden to look after, her summers were spent in solitude using her only great joy of swimming as a favourite activity.

Then came the call from Aunt May. Her poor aunt had fallen and broken her leg and was now in a bind trying to run her Bed and Breakfast. Angel flew to the rescue and that's when she met Jake. And this is where the love story begins.

I was told my many publishers that for romance they wanted a happy ending and a short sweet read without a lot of sex and harsh words. This inspired me to write Angel's Blessing. The cover was taken after the story was written with no intention on the part of the photographer to have it connected to the book. However, when I saw the picture, I just knew it depicted Angel's story.

What I learned from writing Angel's Blessing was a bit about sailing and how to play golf. I learned more about flowers and how to run a Bed and Breakfast. I must also tell you that years after writing Angel's Blessing, I did run a Bed and Breakfast and found it as satisfying and fun as it had been for Angel in her story.

You will love Aunt May. She's the kind of aunt that everyone needs to have. You will also find little Rachael fun and a joy to be around. Angel learns a lot and it's not everyday that a woman finds a man as patient, loving, kind and true as Jake Jordan.

I so loved the characters in Angel's Blessing that I wrote a sequel called Angel's Retreat with some of the same interesting and beloved characters as in the prequel.
