Doctoral student Hannah Wagganer entertains dreams of teaching at a large university and leaving her hometown of Glen Arbor behind. That is until Jasper Morgan, the new mail carrier, arrives in town. Not only does he set Hannah’s heart a flutter, but he has an instant bond with her cat, Jingles.
Preparing for the church candlelight Christmas Eve service and running the family store, Hannah continues to bump into Jasper—and the prying eyes of the locals who suspect there’s more going on than business as usual.
Blessings and suspicions abound when an anonymous donor pays to have the church furnace repaired, and other locals suddenly find solutions to their problems. Is it coincidental, or the work of a secret angel?
Secret Angel by Cherry Christensen is a sweet heartwarming Christmas romance. It has a good storyline but it was an ok book for me. I thought that the story had really good parts and then parts that seemed to drag on some. I thought the author did a good job at depicting the characters’ hopes and dreams and real life situations. I enjoyed the different aspects of each of the character’s faith as well. Secret Angel is Jasper and Hannah’s story. It is a nice Christian Christmas romance read.
Hannah is a small town girl with big dreams. She doesn’t want to stay in her hometown working at her parent’s store. It’s not that she doesn’t like the town or its people it’s that she has bigger aspirations than her town can hold. She isn’t looking for love but then Jasper shows up in town and things begin to change. Jasper moves to a small town and takes the place of a recently retired mailman. He really likes the charming little town and its residents. He is drawn to Hannah more than anyone else. She is an interesting person and he would like nothing more than to get to know her more. The more time they spend together the more their relationship grows. Hannah can’t believe how much she cares for him and how he’s got her acting like a love sick teen. He can’t get enough of her and finds ways to spend more time with her. Will the two of them end up finding what they were always looking for? Or will their lives take different paths?
I love Christmas stories and Secret Angel is no exception to that. It may not have been my favorite Christmas book but it was a good story none the less. I enjoyed Jasper’s character the most. He was well rounded. I liked his reasons for moving to the small town and that he wanted a simpler life than he had already had. I also liked that he was a very generous and down to earth man. Hannah’s character did some growing and that was good. Secret Angel was a bit predictable but that didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the story. I would recommend this story to those who enjoy a quick Christmas romance.
