by Pamela S. Thibodeaux
Single mom Cathy Johnson is tired of running her life alone…what she needs is a well-trained angel to help out. Jared Savoy gave up the dream of having a family when he discovered he is sterile. Can a confirmed bachelor and the mother of four find love amid normal daily chaos?
Though Cathy’s Angel is a very brief story, author Pamela S. Thibodeaux delivers a nice romance and inspirational message in the span of a few pages. Cathy is trying to do it all, raise and support four young children on her own. Jared is a newcomer to the neighborhood, a bachelor who longs for a family. When they meet on a jogging path, and Cathy injures her ankle, Jared is more than happy to step in and take care of things for her. As the two main characters share the responsibility of caring for Cathy’s children, they also find themselves falling in love. Both deeply religious, they are truly thankful that God has provided them with what each needed most.
This is a sweet story, though I felt that Cathy’s unfriendly attitude toward Jared at the beginning changed too quickly once she agreed to let this complete stranger come into her house and take care of her children. And while Jared is certainly a nice guy willing to come to her rescue, I wasn’t sure I believed that he would give up the rest of his life so completely after knowing Cathy for only a matter of hours.
Aside from the very fast way these characters become involved with each other, the story progresses to a sweet and satisfying ending. Readers looking for a quick, inspirational romance will find their happy ending in Cathy’s Angel.
