Book Description

December 1993 Harlequin American Romance
In order to love, he had to become a stranger...

Money. It was all Emerson Wyatt MacVey lived for. Ruthless and demanding, the womanizing corporate raider hadn't thought twice about destroying the tiny backwater town of Angel Falls, Minnesota - or about ruining Carrie Alexander's life...

But suddenly - in the blink of an eye - Emerson received the gift of a second chance at love. He became his own alter ego - sexy, raven-haired Gabriel Falcone. And on a windswept, snowy Thanksgiving night, he arrived in Angel Falls and on Carrie's doorstep...

Without divulging his identity, could Emerson - the new Emerson - right his wrongs and claim the one woman he should have loved?

4.0 out of 5 stars If We all Could Have a 2nd Chance? June 11 2002
By "wildwoodldy" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book begins with Emerson Wyatt MacVey III being in Heaven for 17 months after dieing of a heart attach. He has not changed from his greedy,selfish and self centeredness he possessed while on Earth.He is sent back to Earth with an assignment to right the wrongs he was responsible for when he was alive. He goes back as Gabriel Falconi with a new appearance and new identity.
Gabriel works very hard to accomplish his assignment because he is being weighted in the balance to see if he will be allowed to return to Heaven or will he be sent to "that other place".
Gabriel's character shows both sides of the human nature.The reader is able to feel the emotions (or lack of)in MacVey's personality which is typical of many people but also the warm,loving and caring personality of Gabriel which is found in most everyone.
I enjoyed reading the book very much.It really made me stop and think about what I am doing to others while I am alive because,in reality,I do not think I will have a second chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A heartwarming Christmas tale Oct. 5 2008
By Holly R - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Emerson Wyatt MacVey has hurt and used a lot of people during his thirty two years on Earth. It wasn't until he died and was sent to Heaven's Waystation that he began to see the error of his ways. Now with the threat of the "other place" hanging over his head, Emerson has exactly one month to go back and right three of his wrongs. He's sent back as Gabriel Falconi, a tall, muscular carpenter who lands right in Angel Falls, Minnesota. He's taken in by Carrie Alexandra, a woman whose never met a stranger and she and the whole town embrace him wholeheartedly and welcome him to spend the holidays. Immediately, Gabriel is entranced by Carrie and the goodness she tries so desperately to represent and he finds himself tumbling head over heels in love. As luck would have it, she's one of the three wrongs he needs to right and he can hardly claim success if he loves her and leaves her. He's here on borrowed time and he tries hard to keep his distance. Being around Carrie has helped him see the error of his ways far more than the threat of hell and he tries to be honorable. But when she looks back at him with the same amount of longing, Gabriel is lost and he convinces himself that a night in her arms is worth an eternity in hell.

This was such a heartwarming Christmas story. Since it was originally written in 1993, it has a down-home, Norman Rockwell feel to it that just wouldn't be realistic in the twenty first century. Heck, it shouldn't have been realistic even then, but Anne Stuart makes it work. Angel Falls represents a time when people helped out their fellow neighbors and everyone pitched in together as a group. The fact that Gabriel's arrival is suspicious and he's a stranger makes no never mind to anyone and he's immediately enfolded into the town. He's put to work helping out the Swenson family and from there, he comes into contact with all sorts of lively characters.

Gabriel was a quintessential dream man. Tall and handsome, a good cook, good with his hands and handy around the house. He took care of Carrie with such gentle, single minded fervor that my heart just melted. Carrie was so lost and broken inside and when Gabriel began to heal her, I loved seeing her blossom again. This was such a heartwarming story and it was full of rich, warm and witty characters that I delight in revisiting time and time again. Enjoy!

By B. Kimble - Published on Amazon.com

I really enjoyed this book. In the beginning, I did not think I would like it because it was about someone coming back from the dead. But how wrong I was. This book was VERY, VERY good. It really held my interest.

Made me cry at the end...I won't reveal whether they were tears of sadness or happiness. This book also sends a positive message without seeming preachy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book! Aug. 20 2009
By W. Lacy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is not your typical Anne Stuart but it is a great book. Out of every book of hers I have read, I would have to say this one ranks in the top 5. It is not her usual dark theme but still a very interesting read. I enjoyed it very much. I read the whole thing in one sitting.
