Synopsis

Immortal City by Scott Speer

What if angels not only walked among us - but were our celebrities? What if they saved people for money? That's the reality in Angel City, where hot young Jackson Godspeed is the angel everyone's dying to date. Everyone except for Madison Montgomery, that is. She's too busy studying and waitressing to pay attention to the gossip blogs. Then Jackson tumbles into the diner where she works, and they forge an instant, unforgettable connection. But as Maddy is reluctantly drawn into Jackson's glamorous world, Jackson fears he's exposing her to more than just the paparazzi. A serial killer is murdering one angel at a time. Not only could Jackson be next - but it seems the killer's got sights set on Maddy...

Reviews

'I was hooked on this book within the first chapter! I just loved how different it is from anything else I have read.' Annabell's Book Nook blog

"Accurately hitting on celebrity-obsessed culture and the dichotomy between the glitterati and everyday people, Speer blends romance and mystery to deliver a fresh take on the angel novel .. Strong writing, well-rounded characters, and an enticing hook in the form of the mercenary/ celebutante angels breathe life into the world Speer has created." - Publishers Weekly
