Storyline

Jim is soon to be married to Patty, but when he wakes up after a bachelor party thrown by his friends, he finds an injured angel in his pool. When Patty sees her, she thinks he's seeing someone else and gets upset and tells her father. Now he has to figure out how to; cure the angel, tell Patty what happened, keep his friends from taking the angel to the papers, and keep Patty's father from killing him. It's no wonder he has a headache. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

Wings of Love
1 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nothing made sense until he saw her again, and then everything fell into place. Her mission was derailed by a broken wing. Her target was him, and those headaches were the red lights flashing, warning. But if the mission had gone as planned, the layers of his life would never have been pulled away, and he would never have found true love. But now it was time to go.

Love is a mystery that walks beside us, and what we think is love is merely the illusion. And as our eyes struggle to hold it are we captivated by stories, movies from the heart. And complicated lives weave into delicate webs, and lies, betrayal, and greed try to cut those threads. And as the story lines hold us in its hand, we laugh, and we cry. And in the end, love survives, and Date With An Angel soars high.
