"The Search Angel" by Tish Cohen (Review)

By Thismomloves @ThisMomLoves
So, I'm a little embarrassed to say that this is the first book I've read from Canadian-born Tish Cohen.
The funny thing is, when publishers contact me about adult fiction, I usually pass, since I'm quite picky about what I like, and don't want to waste my time. When I was asked if I wanted to take a peek at an advance copy of "The Search Angel", I was intrigued by the story, and immediately agreed (telling myself that if I didn't like it, I just wouldn't post about it, no big deal. This Mom "Loves", right?)
I was very pleasantly surprised. And I admit, seeing this on the cover helped put me in the right frame of mind:
"Move over, Jodi Picoult." - The Globe and Mail

"The Search Angel" is about Eleanor Sweet, owner of an upscale baby boutique struggling with fertility issues. She and her husband are in the process of adopting (i.e. on their way to the airport to pick up) an orphaned child when he gets cold feet. (That's not a spoiler, it's in the blurb.) While struggling to continue the adoption process (or to decide if she even wants to) Eleanor, herself adopted, enlists the help of a Search Angel to find her own birth mother. Mixed in with all of these emotions, there's also the mysterious new man next door, but even that relationship doesn't progress in a formulaic chick-lit way. Maybe Eleanor even reconciles with her husband, who knows?
I'm not giving anything more away, but "The Search Angel" was definitely a book that kept me wanting more, and every day I looked forward to the time when I could get at it again.
I will now be seeing out Tish's past books for summer reading, and keeping my eye open for future titles as well.
"The Search Angel" is available now!
