Avery Snow led a boring, no thrills life.  Now, at twenty-six, Avery is very used to being lonely. She enjoys her job at Sunrise Estates, it’s the one place where she doesn’t feel left out. Her boss, Kerri, is her best friend and Lucy O’Shea, a resident at the home, is a good friend to her as well. The night Lucy dies in Avery’s arms she delivers a haunting message. She tells Avery that a man looking for her from a past life. He will stop at nothing to have her. Now Avery is unable sleep for more than a few hours.  Too terrified to sleep for the dreams are too vivid and too real.  Her Spirit Guide, Ianni, comes to help. Ianni shows Avery her past lives and tells her about the man who is stalking her soul. Now Avery remembers every life she has ever lived and she remembers the man she shared them with. The problem is Avery is in love with someone else in this life. Ianni must help keep Avery from making the wrong choice.  She also must keep her safe from the Dark Guides who are after Avery. Now Avery must make choices she never has before. This once lonely girl is now surrounded by Spirit Guides, psychics, Demonic Angels and two men fighting for her love. Do you believe in reincarnation and a love that can last lifetimes?


It has taken me a few days to gather my thoughts regarding a review of this book. Not because I didn’t like or enjoy the book but because I LOVED IT! Every woman should be so lucky as to have a love transcend time, space and defy God and the Angels like Avery and Landon. Don’t be confused and think this is a sappy love story. It is not. It has that special Christy Sloat twist that makes her style unique. You wont be able to put this book down.

We begin with Avery who has had a trouble life filled with heartache. Until recently her life has been boring but now she is falling for the cute bartender, Dallas, and having strange dreams about another man and a woman who appears to be her. Enter in her Spirit Guide Ianni and we have a story. Avery learns from Ianni that she has lived many lives and in each life her soul mate has found her and they have lived a happy life together. Now others have been hurt in the process and Avery is ready to strike out and experience life with someone other than her soul mate. Enter Landon AKA the soul mate. Landon can love no other but after seeing Avery with his cousin (yes a new twist), Dallas, he is wiling to walk away and see things from the sidelines. But of course Avery waivers with her decision and must fight her feelings for Landon while trying to move on with Dallas, and oh did I mention the Dark Guides after Landon and Avery’s souls. Life is hard enough without demons and angels interfering. This is not your typical love story but that’s what makes it FANTASTIC. I could not put this book down. Who’s team will you be on? Team Landon or Team Dallas.
