Falling: An Angel in Disguise Book 1 by MK Lansbury
Teresa could be interesting and Gabe is mysterious, but neither character is very well developed. By the end of the story, the reader knows very little about either. The other characters are classic tropes with an unrealistic obviousness about their roles. Sudden epiphany is used to force characters to change their core personality to better fit the narrative. Plot hints are also obvious and leave nothing for the reader to guess about.
The story needed to be longer to fully develop the characters and give them time to work out the various issues. As it stands, it reads like a draft version of a novel that is still in the development stages. There is also a lack of content editing as some sections of the story literally make no sense. I love the concept for this book and truly believe that with a little more focus and editing the story could be really good.
