reviewed on + 56 more book reviews

Meet Augusta Goodnight, guardian angel extraordinaire, and the afterlife's best angel-sleuth. Always on call, she's resourceful, wisecracking - and literally down-to-earth....

Minda Hobbs has returned to her hometown of Angel Heights, South Carolina to seek purpose in her life. Instead, she finders her ne'er-d0-well cousin Otto, as cold and stiff as yesterday's grits, in the ladies' room of the historic Minerva Academy.

Just when she's at the end of her rope, Minda bumps into her guardian angel, August Goodnight. Shimmering with church-window radiance and smelling of strawberry jam, Augusta is a temp on a double mission: to help Minda solve the mystery of Otto's murder and to wrap up some unfinished business from 1916. Their only lead is a tiny, gold pin - and their only hope, a wing and a prayer.
