Angel's Redemption is a sweet story without being saccharine. Elijah Patterson and Jackson Edwards are two men who may be at different points in their lives, but find a way to blend. The story and characters have an innocence in spite of some tragic and horrible things happening to the characters. I think that it that fresh innocence, in spite of what has happened in the past, and the characters bringing out the best in each other, that makes the story really work for me. Reads like a warm hug and I look forward to reading more.
Elijah Patterson ahsa moved as far away as possible from his past and has moved in next door to Jackson Edwards. Jackson has been along for four years and is not looking for anything new when he meets Elijah through Shep, his dog. A friendship develops that may lead to something more, but will it?
