I dug back to my dustiest shelf for this one and decided to give it a go. And, the verdict is in. A quick, humorous, and heartwarming sweet heart of a novella involving a nerdy angel, a class reunion to remember, and a body swap that complicates it all.
Norman the angel gets his first assignment and he is confident that he’s got this one. How hard can it be, right?
John showed up for his 20 year class reunion after getting fired from his last job for sexual harassment. He just needs to convince the nerdy guy he once bullied to hire him for one of his TV studies. No sweat!
Jack is going to his class reunion for one reason and one reason only. And, its not to give a success speech to all the people who used to torment him. Rori, the girl he has unfinished business with.
Rori was shy and lacking confidence back in high school so she let the guy she really liked get away. But, she’s going to the reunion and ready to tell him the truth this time. She’s got this.
Well, well, like so many plans, these folks get a surprise when fate laughs and twists it all up.
This short novella-length story was a quick read and rather well-developed for the page length. It was simple and cute if a little cheesy, too. I enjoyed the twist in the romance when Jack ends up in John’s body with only the length of the reunion to get Rori to see him and not John. And, he can’t tell her the truth. She has to figure it out for herself. Convincing her is a tough sell because John was the popular kid and class bully who hurt both Rori and Jack.
The angel element was the comedy part. Norman was great. He fumbled and bumbled his way along with his assignment to help Jack with his second chance with Rori.
All in all, it was a fun afternoon interlude and I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the quick little paranormal body switch romance.
