Angel in Vegas: The Chronicles of Noah Sark: Norma Howe

Angel in Vegas: The Chronicles of Noah Sark Angel in Vegas: The Chronicles of Noah Sark by Norma Howe

My review

rating: 1 of 5 stars

Hmm... Our hero(?) is a Guardian Angel, assigned to Princess Diana but forgot to put her in "protective surveillance" one night - you know the rest, right? This is his next assignment, as Noah Sark, 16-year-old from Angels Camp CA visiting Las Vegas for, well, something. He meets Andy and his Di-lookalike girlfriend Barbra (she's the assignment) and they spend a day together: hanging out at the donut shop, touring the Strip, watching Barbra dance as her Elvis-impersonator-father's Hound Dog, etc.. In the end, they're in California (flown there by Andy's Uncle Buck) and narrowly miss being killed in a car driven by a man named Henri.

I could have easily done without all the digressions about Life In Paris, Life with Diana, Things To Do In Paris With "Margaret", etc.. For an angel that's been around forever, this one seems pretty out of it. More focus on Andy/Barbra would have made the book a much better read. And I'm guessing - based on the "Chronicles" part, that it's going to be a series. Yikes.
