C is for... Celebrate! India Drummond's 'Ordinary Angels' Out Today

Woo! It's celebration time, because today is the day my wonderful friend India Drummond's book Ordinary Angels is released!

An angel is about to fall…

Most of Zoë Pendergraft’s friends are dead, but she doesn’t mind because they died long before she met them. Then one Tuesday night an angel takes her salsa dancing and turns her world upside down. Grim reality closes in when she discovers a body in her company’s boiler room and Higher Angels accuse her best ghost friend of murder. Knowing she’s the only one who can stand against them, Zoë resorts to lying, stealing and summoning.

In the end, getting blood on her hands forces Zoë to question herself.

Sounds good, doesn't it? That's because it IS! Here's my review:

With a smart sassy heroine, sexy angels and a fast-paced plot, India Drummond's Ordinary Angels is a heavenly read.

Zoe sees dead people. But for her, they're more than just visions -- they're her friends. So when one of them goes missing amidst an accusation of murder, Zoe can't help but get involved. From start to finish, Drummond effortlessly creates an intriguing world with necromancers and angelic orders I easily fell into. Mix in Zoe's romance with an angel even the devil couldn't resist and a dark mystery that could have disastrous consequences for the determined Zoe, and even chocolate couldn't lure me away.

Ordinary Angels is anything but ordinary. With its unique mix of romance, mystery and escapism, it is -- quite simply -- pure bliss.

You can buy the book from Lyrical Press, Barnes & Noble and Amazon (link coming soon). And pop over to India's (also an A to Z participant) to say congrats! She's been a fantastic help and support to me in my writing journey and I can't wait to read her next book.
