Substitute Angel


PARANORMAL:  Wyatt “Doc” Reynolds has a chip on his shoulder about God. Who wouldn’t when their love is ripped from their life? Thing is, “He” is also known for His sense of humor so when Doc is hit—quite literally—with an angel, it all gets a little rowdy. 


Clair is an injured angel and needs Doc to help complete her mission. The mission? Save Farren Huffman. Farren is recently married and about to be murdered…by her new husband. Doc has no problem playing the hero (he’s a paramedic) but when his heart is miraculously re-awakened, he draws the line at fraternizing with a married woman.


Walt Disney said: “Good and evil, the antagonists of all great drama in some guise, must be believably personalized. The moral ideals common to all humanity must be upheld. The victories must not be too easy. Strife to test valor is still and will always be the basic ingredient….” This tried-and-true recipe for a great story applies aptly to “Substitute Angel”. Timothy Best weaves a touching tale, evoking belly laughs and sobby tears of joy that most novels only dream of producing. On occasion his detailed descriptions get a little lengthy, but it’s the only weakness found in the armor of a white-knight of a tale. Ever hear the phrase “they don’t make ‘em like that anymore”? Well, Timothy Best does!
