Sometimes love can take you by surprise.

Kara Newell has a big-city life that needs a major shake-up. Her dedication as a social worker is unwavering, yet her heart tells her that there is more to life than just work. Kara gets the push she needs when, shockingly, she inherits a large estate on an island off the South Carolina coast. Now the charming town of Angels Landing awaits her—along with a secret family she never knew she had.

After surviving war, loss, and heartbreak, ex-marine Jeffrey Hamilton takes his position as the sheriff of idyllic Cavanaugh Island very seriously. So he is the perfect person to watch over the beautiful, confident woman who has turned her new family’s expectations upside down—and stepped into the crosshairs of angry local residents.

Soon Kara becomes more than just a job to him, and he begins to need her in ways he never expected. As Kara and Jeffrey confront the town gossips together, they’ll learn to face their fears and forgive their pasts in order to find a future filled with happiness in Angels Landing.

    " Angels Landing is the first book I've read by Rochelle Alers. It is very intriguing, and I found that it piqued my interest enough for me to want to learn more about the Lowcountry and the Gullah culture. The romance between Sheriff Jeff Hamilton and Kara Newell was a good one too. The easy fall into love was symbolic of the slower paced lifestyle Kara finds herself in when she gets to Angels Landing from New York. I liked the mysterious nature of the reasons why she came to the island as well. The softer side of romance leaves room for me, as a reader, to take stock and think about the messages Alers was trying to convey in the story itself. It was a easy read, and I did get to like some of the characters. However, the problems were solved too easily. This author's style is different from what I like, in that she tells a lot, in my opinion. At times, it frustrated me, and I wanted to scream. I like to solve riddles and figure hints out for myself as a reader, so it was a bit jarring for me. Nevertheless, l liked the setting and some of the characters, so much, that I want to read the other books In the Cavanaugh Island series. "

    " This was a real pull at you heart type of book. From the very begining you start to get to know the characters of the story. Kara is the main character and she has a huge heart and she accomplishes more than you could imagine. It was a good read for a non action novel. "

    " This was a decent book. I did not enjoy it as much as many of her others. I am still going to read the other two books in this series. I still think that Alers is one of the best Romance writers out there. The characterization was vague. I was looking to get more of a Lowcountry feel from the book. "
