Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Los Angeles, the city of angels, where traffic never stops, people never sleep, and wonders never cease.

It's a brilliant plan, if Kemp McAvoy says so himself--and Kemp never hesitates to point out his own brilliance. Kemp is a night nurse for a beautiful but aging movie star in a medically induced coma. And with the help of her agent and a struggling young publisher, he's concocted a can't-fail scheme that will make them all rich.

Olivia Hayden is about to receive a heavenly visitor--an angel with a message for all humankind. All it takes is a blinding light and little adjustment of her meds, and when she awakes she'll think it was real--and they'll have an instant best-selling book.

The scheme seems foolproof. All they have to do for it to work is be good angels and stay out of trouble. But Kemp McAvoy has never been good at staying out of trouble--and he doesn't realize there may be out-of-this-world consequences for impersonating an angel.

From award-winning author Tim Downs comes this warm-hearted story of mistaken identity and unlikely redemption that will have you both laughing and looking at life from a higher perspective.

Review:

"Christy Award — winning author Downs (Plague Maker) delivers a novel different in tone from his previous suspense thrillers. When famed actress Olivia Hayden ends up in intensive care after a car accident, her nurse, Kemp McAvoy, seizes the opportunity to exploit the comatose star for his own personal gain. But while he's playing 'angel' to the infirm celebrity, his girlfriend's daughter, Leah Pelton, claims she truly does see divine spirits. As the novel intensifies, the manipulation of one manufactured mystery becomes mired in criminal missteps; meanwhile, the other, possibly hallucinatory one, proves more difficult to refute. While Downs attempts to maintain the edge of a crime novel in this energetic drama, McAvoy's loutish nature, foiled by Pelton's endearing sincerity, makes for overly simplified characters in a sometimes stilted narrative. Nevertheless, fans of his previous books may find it refreshing to read this author's fast-paced novel set not in the South but in the greedy world of Hollywood. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

It's true what they say, you know: If you talk to God, you're religious; but if you hear from God, you're schizophrenic.

When a car accident leaves a famous movie star in a coma, nurse Kemp McAvoy thinks he has found his ticket to the life he's always wanted. As a med school dropout who was on his way to becoming an anesthesiologist, Kemp has the knowledge to carry off the crazy plan he concocts: adjust the star's medication each night and pretend to be a heavenly visitor giving her messages. He recruits her agent and a down-and-out publisher to make sure the messages will become the next spiritual bestseller and make them all rich.

But his girlfriend's daughter, Leah, keeps telling people that she is seeing angels, and her mother and her teachers are all afraid that something is wrong.

Before it's all over, they'll all learn a few things about angels, love, and hope.
