Angel Falls by Connie Mann (Review & Giveaway)

When her best friend is killed in an explosion, leaving Regina da Silva with her friend’s young child, she doesn’t realize that the child was as much a target as her friend. Brooks Anderson has been sent to find the child and bring it to the US. When circumstances bring them together in Brazil, they find themselves being pursued by a killer as they protect an orphaned baby.

As the danger heightens around them, so does the attraction between Regina and Brooks, despite their differences. Regina and Brooks have both been broken by their violent pasts, but while Regina relies on her faith to deal with her past, Brooks has turned away from God. Will their pasts stop them from realizing their true feelings for each other when their pursuer strives to keep them apart forever?


Angel Falls is a really enjoyable read and a good debut novel. I've haven't read much fiction that is set in Brazil and found that aspect of the story very interesting.

The suspense aspect of the novel was great. Though I did have an inkling who was behind it all much sooner than it was revealed, I still very much enjoyed it.

I personally didn't like how intimate Brooks was with Regina, especially with him constantly thinking how he wasn't the marrying kind and she was the type of woman that was wife material. I thought for a Christian novel all the scenes with them laying down together was the wrong message to be sending, if you are trying teach restraint I don't believe you should constantly be tempting yourself by making it so easy to fail. That being said, this was one of my only negatives with the book.

Overall, a very enjoyable read and I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.
