Saving the life of someone you love should not be the worst thing you have ever done, unless you are an Angel of Death.

Disgruntled with his position in the afterlife and conflicted by his feelings toward his new client, Nathaniel Evans forgoes the rules and saves nineteen year old Juliana Crowson from being hopelessly stuck in Forge Creek. This alters Juliana’s destiny and she finds herself in a series of near death accidents.

In the mountains of Colorado, Nathaniel comforts Juliana as she struggles to understand her paranormal abilities while coping with her brother’s drug addiction. When an ill-tempered Native American Shaman teaches her the difference between ghosts and place memories, she decides she wants nothing to do with the supernatural world. Too bad she doesn’t know that Nathaniel is part of it. 

Will fate bring these two together, or has Nathaniel made the biggest mistake of his afterlife?

He turns to stand in front of me, silent as a shadow. His hand lifts out of the dark. His fingertips brush the underside of my chin gently tipping my face up to his. How does he move and make no sound?  His fingers move to my temple, brushing away a hair then trailing down to the edge of my jaw where they halt. He watches my face and looks into my eyes. I feel a surge of loneliness from somewhere deep inside him. I don’t understand it or have time to dwell on it but it makes me want to hold onto him. His gaze lowers to my mouth.

He’s so close. I didn’t see it before, but he glows. The slightest iridescent shimmer encapsulates him, so totally different than the way Chris’s aura looked. He smells good too, like I remembered, and more. It’s so familiar, but I can’t say where from. The ozone smell of clean air after a storm and hints of cinnamon and honey swirled in cream. It’s intoxicating. Even the feel of him standing near me is like a caress passing over my skin. I can’t believe myself. I’m going to let this vague stranger kiss me, and I want him to.

Jody A. Kessler enjoys writing paranormal novels and is a member of Pikes Peak Writers.  She is a yoga instructor, Reiki Master, and a graduate from the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy. When she took an extended leave from her massage practice to stay at home with her newborn she returned to her first true passion —writing. She spends most of her time being a mother, writing, and teaching yoga, but also likes going to concerts, hiking, practicing herbal medicine, and reading anything that catches her interest. Jody lives in the mountains of Colorado with her family.

Death Lies Between Us is her debut novel and the first book in the An Angel Falls series. Book two, Angel Dreams, is scheduled for release in early 2014.

Not what i expected to read!
it was well written, and surprises are littered within the story.

Basically, the story revolves around an angel, Nathaniel, who helps people after they die to accept it and move on, and a human, Jules who Nathaniel is sent to help her cross.  But he discovers feelings for her, and rather than standing back and waiting for the inevitable, he keeps saving her.

Jules has a twin brother, Jared, who is in a band, and about to be signed up by a record company after they play for the director at the well known haunted mansion called Castle Hill.

Jules has abilities that shes repressed or ignored for a while, but being in this Castle Hill brings forth her abilities and is encouraged by ghost hunter Chris, who sees Nathaniel for what he actually is and tries to help Jules.  But Nathaniel is not the only one who discovers feelings.  Jules likes him too...

Nothing can happen, though, right?.....
Can Nathaniel save her....?
What consequences does he face interfering with nature?

It was not a fly through easy read, and did take me a few sittings.  Definitely unlike anything I've read before, and I'm not sure what i was expecting to read, but it wasn't this!  But i enjoyed it.  Not necessarily a happy story, but not a sad one either - a mixture of both and a nice read!
