Bitchery reader JennK has a description that is so detailed, I’ll be shocked if no one guesses this in one try:
A sweet little old lady volunteer gave me these while I was hopped up on pain meds after having my appendix out, and I’d like to find them again, especially the unread rest of the series. They were older – early to mid-90’s, I believe – and part of a contemp. series with angels as the heroes.
One of the books had a dead lawyer who returns in a different body to protect his wife. He knows who he was, she doesn’t, but she notices certain mannerisms, etc., and finally puts it together when he says some legal phrase that her dead hubby always used.
The second one has a nurse for a heroine, and at the end the angel, named Sam, has to face the music for breaking the rules and the heroine isn’t ever going to see him again. Boo…sob! But then she goes to work and there’s this guy in a coma who wakes up and – wheee! – it’s the angel, given a 2nd chance on earth.
The third is even more murky. All I remember is it had a kid angel (Ariel, Asriel, A-something-el) who had to get the non-angel hero and heroine together and possibly ends up adopted by them.
The only other clue I have is that the series name was a street number and name, possibly the address of their “protection” agency.
