From Goodreads
 It’s been a year since Ivy’s boyfriend, Tristan, died. They’ve both moved on—Tristan to the other side of the afterlife, and Ivy to sweet, dependable Will. Now Ivy’s heading to Cape Cod, hoping to leave the horror of last summer behind. She wants nothing more than to lie on the beach, sip lemonade, and hang out with her friends.  But then a car crash ends Ivy’s life.

As she floats to the beyond, looking down on the life she’s left behind, Tristan breathes life back into her with a passionate kiss. She wakes up in the hospital, surrounded by Will and her family, but all she can think about is the love that she lost.

But memories aren’t all that’s come back from the past. And this time, Ivy’s not sure love will be enough to save her.

My Review

It took me a while to get fully into this book.  I finally understood the reason, I had not read the first three books in the series.  This book could be a stand-a-lone read but I believe once I read the first three books it will make better sense.  The opening line hooked me and I read it all the way through in one sitting.  The book was nicely written.  The characters were full of flaws instead of being so perfect.  It had a few twists and turns in it that I enjoyed immensely.  The ending was completely unexpected.  I had to re-read the ending twice to make sure I understood it correctly because it was not what I expected to happen.  This is definitely a book I will recommend to others and I will definitely need to read the first three books.


  1. I might check out the first books before trying this. Thanks for the tip.

  2. i love this book and kudos for chandler for making this amazing book happen i mean if it wasnt for my sister and her book project i would never heard of it im so happy:)

  3. I've read all the books now and cant wait for the next one. I love her writing once you start reading you cant put it down. I read Kissed by an Angel 1st and was just blown away, I've read it 3 times and will read it along with the other 4 again and again. Thanks for keeping me intertained.
