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 bestselling 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.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teri Smith | 2/4/2014

    " Definitely not characteristic of Tim Downs' writing. I was quite disappointed in this book. The characters were not developed well, the story seemed thrown together. If you want to read something good by Tim Downs, go with any Bugman novel or Plague Maker. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 12/19/2013

    " Enjoyable, clever, well-written. Will appeal to men and women, I believe. An entertaining piece of fiction writing, good for summer. Would make a good film, I think. Lots of humor in it. "

    " It was a little weird, bad character development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 10/5/2013

    " While I loved the storyline, I really wished the characters had been more developed. I wanted to know more about each of them. Why they acted the way they did or did the things they did. That's a lot of dids there...LOL. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Ann | 6/16/2013

    " Thanks, Tim, for the advance copy! This story was fun to read; interesting characters...some real schmucks, a sweet little girl, her mother and an angel. The storyline is a hoot and yet thought provoking. I closed the cover with a smile on my face. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 6/20/2012

    " This book was like a soap opera; you know it's bad, yet it sucks you in and you have to see how it ends and what they will come up with next. "

    " Tim Downs always has a way of drawing me into his stories. The characters were engaging and the pace kept moving. I came to hate Kemp quickly and only wished Tino could have finished the job. Although this is not a "Bug Man" series, I think most will enjoy the book. "
