AUTHOR: Delia Latham

Church secretary and praise team leader, Aria Robbins isn't happy when she has to work with the new youth minister. She also has to grin and bear it when he moves into the cottage next to hers at Heart's Haven...but she doesn't have to like him. Truth is, she'd be much happier if Corbin Bishop would take his charm and his big, fancy ideas right back to Austin where he belongs.
When a spiritual attack on Angel Falls lands Aria and Corbin on the battlefront as part of a team of prayer Warriors in God's Service (WINGS), they must fight for their town, their church, and their pastor, and Aria sees Corbin in a whole new light.
But emotional scars from an unspeakable childhood have distorted Corbin's acceptance of certain Scriptural truths, and Aria won't trust her heart in the hands of a man whose faith is unsure. Aria wraps her prayer wings around him tightly. Will Corbin finally trust God to heal his soul?
The beginning of this story struck me as eerily reminiscent of Frank Peretti’s bestseller, This Present Darkness, and I wondered just how similar it would turn out to be. I needn’t have worried, Love in the WINGS is an original and wonderful book. Like Peretti’s novel, it deals with spiritual warfare and the reality of angels both good and evil, but this is a romance as well as an adventure in the spiritual realm.
Author Delia Latham’s skill is creating characters that make us care is evident, as my heart ached and rejoiced with Aria, Corbin, Pastor David and his wife, Pia, as well as some minor but very important characters.
I have not yet read the other books in Ms. Latham’s Hearts Haven series, but now that I’ve read Love in the WINGS, I certainly want to read them all. This book earns five stars. Highly recommended.
