Dan Sullivan was the best friend of Olivia Henry when his life was taken in a tragic car accident. Shocked to be on the other side, Dan navigates his way by learning his new role in eternal life. His first assignment is as Olivia’s guardian angel. He has the crucial role of guiding her to her pre-defined destiny. Dan’s death throws Olivia into a tail-spin which causes her to veer way off course. He understands the enormity of the challenge when he hears the mechanism by which he can communicate. He’s only allowed to use signs and symbols to get her attention and cannot interfere with her free-will.
Every time he thinks he’s close, something throws her off track. He’s forced to start over by convincing her to trust in their enduring, unbreakable bond. Olivia can feel Dan’s presence but is still reluctant to believe the messages he’s sending. She is fearful of falling in love again at the risk of losing another soulmate. Can Dan persuade her to trust in his love from afar so she can finally receive the happiness she truly deserves?
I have read every book in this series. In the first book, Dan dies but the prior novels focus on Dan's best friend, Olivia aka Hank and her friends. Dan does appear in the prior novels with "hints" of his existence as Hank's guardian angel.
In this book, it focuses on Dan and his time in heaven. I did enjoy getting to know Dan better. Also, seeing how he was sending signs to Hank was cool. If you have not read the prior novels; then, you might be a bit lost on the many references of scenes and characters introduced in this book. It was interesting to see just how much Dan was involved in watching over Hank throughout the course of her life "after Dan".
However, what I missed the most was the giddy humor. I got a tiny bit of that from Dan with his nickname for Jesus of "Chuy" but it was not constant or as lighthearted as the rest of the books. Yet, I still liked getting to see things from Dan's point of view.
