Ivy always believed in angels. When she meets Tristan, it's the love of a lifetime. When he dies, her heart is broken and her belief in angels vanishes. And without that belief, she is unable to feel Tristan's presence when he returns--as an angel. Now Ivy is in terrible danger, and Tristan is struggling to save her. How can he protect her if she's lost her faith in angels?
I thought this novel was good, but it wasn't, to me, what others have been saying about it. I thought Ivy fell a little flat to me at times, and it was very reminiscent of the year it was published (1995) and wasn't current enough for me. For me there was never a question of 'whodunit' because I suspected the culprit from the beginning. They were just too sly and too sleazy for something not to happen with them.
The writing was fair and I really enjoyed Tristan and Ivy's relationship in the beginning of the book. It was very sweet and I love their names together. To me, they scream tragic romance, just as Romeo and Juliet does. There was a part that I'm not going to get into, but it involved an animal and I thought it was a little over the top for a YA book in my opinion.
Overall, I thought this was a good book though I didn't like it as much as I thought. I'm bummed about it because I love Elizabeth Chandler as an author, especially Dark Secrets. I couldn't put that one down!
