Banished from Grace (Banished from Grace #1) by Aria Williams
Genre: YA, Paranormal, Romance
My Rating: 4.0/5.0
Nardia is a very special nurse, one with a unique gift. With the touch of her bare hands, she can heal any physical ailment. With the help of her angel guide, Benilde, Nardia has healed her way through countless centuries.
Life should be easy for this attractive (not to mention, immortal) woman, but throw in two handsome men, a coffee addiction and memory loss that dates back to the medieval ages, and you’ve got a life that’s more than complicated.
When she meets AJ at her favorite coffee shop, she can’t help but feel an immediate attraction to him. At the same time, she knows there’s more to his story than what he’s letting on. And then there’s the handsome Doctor Regan, who she feels a connection with, but is she trying to make it more than is really there in order to spare her the heartbreak of being with AJ?
Only adding to her problems is the new resident, Dr. Jeffries, who seems out to get her from day one, and a murder case she can’t help solve without revealing her own secrets.
Can Nardia uncover the secrets of her own past while still moving forward and saving those in need of her help in the present?
This cover is so stunning! I love the purples and the earthy tones, overall a really pretty cover!
Nardia is a nurse at her local hospital. What her colleagues don’t know is that she can heal a person just by the touch of her hand. Nardia has been around for 400 years…and counting. She is still the young woman that she was when she first woke up with no recollection of where she came from.
Apparently, being poisoned and shot in the head doesn’t stop her one bit as she used her healing power on herself.
Banished from Grace was very easy to read, I read it in a night it was so good! It wasn’t hard to connect with Nardia, she was a very easy character to like. Even though she had a daughter that looked at least forty years older than her, this just showed how loving she was.
The romance with AJ happened quickly. It wasn’t insta as such, because they had a past relationship and felt that connection.
I don’t really have an opinion of AJ. Seeing as the book was told from Nardia’s P.O.V, and he wasn’t in it all the time. There was another love interest for a couple of chapters, a doctor that Nardia worked with. But it didn’t last long.
There was a hint of paranormal in Banished From Grace, (can you tell by the title what sort of supernatural it was? Huh, huh?) , but it wasn’t plastered through the novel as Nardia didn’t even know what she was before AJ told her.
Overall, I really enjoyed Banished from Grace was would defiantly read the sequel as it ended on a bit of a cliff hanger.
