MOTERWRITER.COM reviews the hit novel – Angels
Author Erin Lockwood's fictional story about a beautiful woman juggling career and relationships in modern day Denver is a contemporary take on life.
Light, playful and yet heart wrenching at times – this is a novel for all the true romantics.
Cara and Sam are destined for each other, we know it the first time we meet them, and everyone else seems to know it as well. But life constantly interrupts and prevents them from taking the next step.
It doesn't help at all that Cara is in a codependent platonic relationship with Theo. Cara is forever the damsel in distress and Theo is the enabler who thrives on being needed all the time. When Sam enters the scene, it disrupts the equation between the two. Theo and Sam have a chequered history behind them and share a love-hate relationship;
But destiny is a funny thing, and by the time fate is done with these characters their lives will never be the same again.
The core message the author wants to send out is this – no one among us is perfect and so let's not even pretend otherwise. Let's also not be scared, don't be scared to love and don't be scared to be loved. Let's start treating people without prejudices and biases. The world isn't conspiring to cause us hurt. Live a little, love a lot, and be human again. Let us bring back compassion and respect into our lives.
Praise for the book –
"The whole story line is well thought out and the novel itself is a quick read. Finished the book in 3 days straight! The many situations Cara goes through make you happy, angry, sad, and thoughtful. This was a good first book and I hope the sequel comes out quickly." - Grady Hall, an Amazon reviewer
Nick Wales had this to say, "A slow start I've to admit, but if you don't give up, then you will be treated to a rather enjoyable story about 30-ish something men & women living their life in the big city. There were many scenes that stuck with me - the wedding scene, the first date and the night club scene were all top-class. It is a good contemporary romance with both style and substance."
"Love, what a wonderful emotion it is! Great ready to fall in love. Erin has introduced a wonderful character in Cara. I thought it was perfect." - An ARC reader
Amy Gonzalez says, "I think Cara is my new favorite heroine. My heart went out to her. It is a good book and I enjoyed the way the author pinned letters and emails into the story."
According to reviewer John, "I was really into the story. I understood the humor and felt sad at the right places. I wonder what the story will be like in the second book. Bring it on."
Kevin Peter of Moterwriter.com said that, "This is a great story that shows characters going through some tough changes in life. It is very relatable and I liked the different perspective the author gives in the story. I only wish Sam's perspective was given more scope."
About the author:
Erin Lockwood grew up in Castro Valley, California, and attended the University of Oregon where she graduated with a degree in journalism in 2003. From there, she moved to Denver, Colorado, and spent the next seven years searching for the love of her life and building the family of her dreams. It wasn't long until, with children starting preschool and more time on her hands, Erin refocused on her career, beginning with a successful entry into the world of residential real estate as a realtor. Free time was spent reading book after book—and binge-watching the subsequent films—in the New Adult genre. Hopelessly in love with her husband, she wrote him a short story for their fifth wedding anniversary. That's when she discovered her tireless passion to share her experience of falling in love through fictional characters. That story evolved into the first novel in the Angles Trilogy. Erin still lives in Denver with her husband, Phil, and their three children. They spend most of their summers and holidays on the beautiful island of Coronado where Erin and Phil wish to retire someday.
