About The Book
Tad bounces around in time and watches mankind grow and change. He loves humanity and helping when he can. However, his job isn’t conducive to helping people—he’s an Angel of Death.
Doug is a fun-loving drama queen. He’s an amazing drag queen and hairstylist with big dreams, but despite his witty exterior, he has a dark history and is prone to self-destruction.
When Tad pushes the boundaries of his duties too far, his wings are stripped away from him, and he is sent to New York City to live as a human. Lost and alone he ends up meeting Doug, and they start a friendship that shapes them both and may last a lifetime. But nothing is simple when you’re dealing with a former Angel of Death and a Drag Queen. Could these two cause the fabric of our world to collapse or will they manage to keep the future as it should?
MD Neu takes on life, death, love, and more in this book. Told in alternating voices of Doug- a hairstylist, drag queen, and drama queen, and TAD- named by Doug as he is The Angel of Death, this tale takes the reader through time and place as we see humanity at its best and at its worst.
The premise and the main characters, particularly Tad, are the strengths of this book. It is so easy to become invested in him.
The only thing keeping this from a 5 star read for me was the sometimes disjointedness of the narrative as it moved between different times. I also wish I had more information about Shannon – who seemed to have had such an impact on Doug and his development, but about whom we never really learn much.
Continuing through is worth it as the ending was spectacular. My warning is to have the tissues handy for this one. This was my first book by this author, and I find myself searching for more from him now.
In writing this bio I am taking a rare break from reading! I always have a book on hand just in case there is time to sneak in a chapter or two. As a military spouse and a mom of two boys, it is amazing how often I am hurrying up to wait. Luckily for me I don’t have a favorite genre so I get lots of fun authors to choose from. My education was in sociology and mental health counseling, so stories with strong character development are my favorites. Happily Ever After is the best part of romance for me because real life is hard enough.
