Summary

After causing three cooking fires in her apartment, Iris Jensen finds herself evicted. She lands on Riley Benson's doorstep, looking to rent a room in the beautiful old home he's restoring. It's only for six weeks until Iris leaves Portland, Oregon for her new job on a cruise ship. 

Firefighter Riley knows firsthand what a bad tenant she can be. But he needs money to finish the work on the house he loves. And something about Iris pulls at his heart. 

Meanwhile, in Heaven, two angels watch over the young lovers. Angelica and Hildegard work in Heaven's Relationship Division, where angels match mortals with their soul mates. The angels believe so strongly in Iris and Riley's love that they break Heaven's rules to help them. Can the angels convince them they belong together forever before time runs out?

Where angels shouldn't tred...

This book is really two threads that intersect at various moments. There are two angels in the relationship division of heaven who place a bet that promised to affect their careers for the rest of time. Their pet project, Riley and Iris, two humans who may or may not be soulmates.

It is interesting how the story switches from heaven to earth and back again, several times. The budding romance between fireman Riley and accident prone Iris is sweet and funny. It features a crumbling house, a crooked real estate developer, rambunctious pets and fire. All the while the angels watch, comment and interfere as required.

I enjoy how Jana Richards can make a short audiobook rich with humour, action, emotion and details without making the story overwhelming. Her stories are big on the feel-good factor and don't require a heavy commitment in time. Overall, very enjoyable.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

A light romantic story

If you believe in soulmates this is a good story for you. Iris is evicted from her apartment after three fires related to her cooking. So she ends up renting a room from one of the firefighters, Riley, that had come to put out the fires. They are both in need of something...Iris a place to live until she leaves for her new job and Riley who needs money to remodel his home. There are a pair of angels who is in the relationship department and proceed to see to it that Riley and Iris find their love. The narration was great. Enjoyed listening to her bringing the characters to life.

Not as much fantasy/paranormal as I like...

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I requested this book because I was curious about the angelic involvement in the story and how the rule breaking thing would pan out. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more to that side of the story. It mostly centered around the actual couple and their building relationship. It was light hearted and kind of silly. Not really my cup of tea, but I won't dock my rating because it's not my favorite genre. For what it was, I thought it was well written and narrated. Take that as you will.

Cute and sweet

A cute romance with some quirky characters. Not a bad, fun, easy listen. Not usually my cup of tea, but I enjoyed it.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.

Angels in Relationship Division in Heaven Match Soulmates?

I received a copy for an honest and voluntary review.

Iris has the third fire in her apartment when she meets Riley, firefighter. Riley feels a connection but not sure about how he feels about a possible firebug or any relationship. Riley is a sweet, down to earth man who is cautious in giving away his heart.
Iris is a travel agent who has had a vagabond childhood and is sweet open and loving.
Two angels in heaven, Hildegard and Angelina, established and angel in training view a difference as to who Iris’ soulmate is. So we view the burgeoning relationship of Riley and Iris through the eyes of the angels and their burgeoning relationship.
Funny, sweet, and lovable couples with great secondary couples.
The narrator did a great job with voices, timing and pacing. Perfect job.
Great choice for a funny and sweet read with interesting and involved storyline.

Lighthearted Entertaining Romance!

I really enjoyed this lighthearted, entertaining romantic story. Some of the characters were fun and quirky to say the least and the storyline was quite inventive. I enjoyed the idea of the not so perfect angel trying to prove that she was a good matchmaker and worked so hard to bring Iris and Riley together. This was a very enjoyable story which I have no hesitation in recommending it. Kathleen Miranti does a nice job on all the voices. I received a free copy and am providing an unbiased review.
