by Betsy Ann St. Amant
Madison Lawrence fell in love while vacationing in Germany - and Carsten Erlichman nicknames her his "angel". One kiss and twelve gongs from the clock tower later, Madison is forced to leave the man who stole her heart and return to the United States with her family.
She starts an angel collection as a means of feeding her favorite memory. Little does she know that her collection will eventually tangle her in a web of lies, danger, and love. Madison must discover the truth about her father, her faith, and Carsten - before the clock strikes midnight!
Madison Lawrence, escaping from a boring party, encounters an intriguing man who calls her “Angel.” A shared kiss, a dance, and the memory of this chance meeting burns into her mind.
Although six years pass, Madison cannot get the memory of that kiss out of her mind and the angel collection she started on her return does nothing to help drive it away--An angel collection that proves to be a vehicle for danger to Madison and those she loves.
Midnight Angel's premise is kiss, a dance, and a midnight meeting can create a love that will stand the test of time. Betsy St. Amant makes this believable by placing the main characters in a situation where that initial attraction that has remained in the characters' minds can grow into a deep love.
There are twists and turns in the story that will leave the reader wondering just who the bad guys really are. The faith that Madison and Carsten come to share is introduced in a subtle way that is satisfying without the reader feeling they are being preached at.
I thought the tension between Madison and her father was resolved a little too neatly and cleanly, but over all I enjoyed this book and would recommend it highly.
