Scent of an Angel Reviews
Scent Of An Angel is a delightful contemporary romance. It focuses on the role of service dogs to help aid recovery, as well as the topics of disability and PTSD. The story is about an Afghan veteran who needs to focus on living again. The past is a place full of regrets and pain. Until we stop living there, life will never improve. The story was charming, touching and funny. I also loved the focus on Hunter, a large rescue dog with an even larger personality.I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
This novella was my introduction to Mimi Milan’s writing. I actually read this story in her Angel Paws Rescue novella collection which has all three of her Angel Paws Rescue novellas. This first story was well-written, engaging, and fun to read. The setting of the three contemporary romance stories is a small town in North Carolina. The plot of the story is well-developed, even though it is a novella. The dialogue flows well and the surrounding beauty of the town is well-portrayed in the descriptions. The characters have depth and I found myself really bonding with them. Tanner is a wounded veteran needing a prosthetic leg to learn to walk again. He’s angry, bitter, and depressed after returning to his mother’s home. Underneath all the gruffly solider attitude lies a tender and gentle heart, a determined and focused intelligence, a gift for writing, and a desire for love. Eva is a student physical therapist almost done with her schooling who gets roped into helping Tanner adjust to his new leg. She’s survived a verbally and mentally abusive relationship and decides that she needs to return to her independent, feisty, take-charge self to avoid repeating her mistakes. Sparks fly, of course, when these two butt heads. Throw in a matchmaking Mama (Tanner’s) and a great shelter dog named Hunter (Eva’s) training to be a therapy dog and you have a nice, heart-warming story. The author also addresses some serious topics in this series like the variety of physical, mental, and emotional wounds our veterans may carry and the benefit of a guide or therapy dog, as well as the large number of animals that unfortunately do not get adopted. She also has the heroine be Puerto Rican and brings in some of PR’s distinct culture into the book, which was neat. I received a copy of this book through CelebrateLit Tours. I was not required to give a favorable review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.
