During her journey, she will also realize the truth about who she is and find her soul mate. Who will steal her heart—an Italian man, an American student, or her angel? Galatea must overcome the challenges of life abroad, homesickness, and the . . . Camorra? After her father is kidnapped by them, she will travel across Europe guided by her angel and using clues to find him. While fleeing from them, she sees an extra angel near the Castel Sant’ Angelo—but is it her guardian angel?

I have never been to Italy, but after reading this
story...I should book a flight. D.C. Cowan paints a picture of a
gorgeous place and I truly felt like I could see each image, each
sculpture. Galatea was a exuberant and wonderful character that was
portrayed in this story. She finds herself needing backup in a guardian
angel and with a guardian angel like that...who wouldn't? I am a sucker
for chemistry and there was a lot of it in this book. This is one of
those books that you can pick it up in the morning, and have it read by
suppertime. I did not want to put it down. I enjoyed reading it and my
only disappointment was when it was finished. Now, onto finding my next
adventure and seeing what else D.C. Cowan has to offer.
