The Guardian's Angel

Adult; Romance; (Market)

When nobody knows what to do with a troubled, damaged kid, it's time to call Elizabeth Driscoll. A wary, vulnerable, unusually intuitive young woman, Libby has a knack for helping children that others have given up on. Certainly nobody knows what to do with Tommy Madden, least of all his fiercely devoted guardian, Seattle Police Detective J.D. McCammon. McCammon believes the autistic little boy witnessed a double murder: his mother and his father, the city's District Attorney. J.D. is determined to help and protect Tommy at all costs, and somehow, find a way to communicate with him. When Tommy's life is threatened by the corrupt organization that killed his parents, J.D. and Libby take him on a desperate and dangerous flight to safety. They must place their trust in one another to escape a relentless evil that threatens not only their lives, but that of the child they've both come to love. On the run, Libby and J.D. are tested to the limits of their courage and resolve. They discover an intimate and mystifying bond that will either drive them apart, or become their greatest source of strength and passion. THE GUARDIAN'S ANGEL has been awarded READERS' FAVORITE 5 STARS.
D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

"A romance thriller (with) a dose of intrigue and cat-and-mouse action...Farrelly's ability to capture the nuances of autism is realistic and involving, as is her ability to realistically represent the emotions and motivations of two very different protagonists...The autism angle is the single strongest device in The Guardian's Angel...elevating the plot to a whole new level...Libby and J.D.'s romance is well-developed and builds up slowly...a satisfying adjunct to the overlaying tension in the thriller...(It) will appeal to readers of crime stories, thrillers, and romance alike."

J. Magnus, Readers' Favorite

"An intelligent, fast-paced thriller. J.D.'s adopted godchild, Tommy, is autistic, and Farrelly's handling of the subject is inspired. There's also a bit of paranormal fantasy: J.D. and Libby have a mental connection that allows them to communicate telepathically. It's fun to watch how they come to terms with this ability and learn to respect each other's boundaries...(The novel) works wonderfully on all these levels. It's..entertaining and really well-written. I...wholeheartedly recommend it."

"A great story and so descriptive, you feel as if you are the one in danger...a thriller that leaves you on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last!"
