Connie Mann in her new book, “Angel Falls book coverAngel Falls” published by Abingdon Press takes us into the lives of Regina da Silva and Brooks Anderson.

From the back cover:  Two lives Collide in a deadly race to save an orphaned baby

Regina da Silva and Brooks Anderson have been so broken by their violent pasts that they believe romantic love to be an illusion.  Instead, they focus on helping others:  Regina reaches out to street kids while Brooks uses his military knowledge to organize rescue operations.

Their paths cross in Brazil when they are forced to work together to protect the orphaned baby of a dear friend.  On the run and seeking safety in unexpected places, they soon realize that a killer is desperate to destroy not just the child but Brooks and Regina as well.

As the danger heightens around them, so does their attraction.  Will their pasts stop them from realizing their true feelings for each other when their pursuer strives to keep them apart forever?

I have never read any story that dealt with the streets and alleys of Southern Brazil.  Somehow the image that appears in my mind is that of the lush Amazon rain forest and beautiful cities.  Regina is working the orphanage and trying to help the street kids when her friend is killed leaving behind the baby.  Brooks is sent to Brazil to bring the baby back but the killer just wasn’t after the mother the baby was also the intended victim.  Now both Brooks and Regina are the killer’s targets as they try to protect his baby as they run for their survival.  Now this is pure excitement with a capital “E”.  Suspense, adventure, mystery, action all in a clever thriller.  Both Brooks and Regina’s lives are in deadly danger as they try to protect each other and the life of this baby.  What makes a baby such a threat that he needs to be killed?  That is just one of the questions that needs to be solved before this book ends.  Then Ms. Mann has added in the romance.  The themes of forgiveness, healing, redemption and trust play out marvelously in the hands of Ms. Mann.  “Angel Falls” is a run for survival and the suspense will keep you flipping pages.  Get all your chores out of the way before you sit down to read this book.  You will want your cup of tea and peace and quiet as you spend the time on the run for survival in Southern Brazil.  You will be glad you did.  I am already looking forward to more from this talented author.
