Banished from Grace (Banished from Grace #1)
Release Date: June 2013
Nardia is a very special nurse, one with a unique gift. With the touch of her bare hands, she can heal any physical ailment. With the help of her angel guide, Benilde, Nardia has healed her way through countless centuries.
Life should be easy for this attractive (not to mention, immortal) woman, but throw in two handsome men, a coffee addiction and memory loss that dates back to the medieval ages, and you’ve got a life that’s more than complicated.
When she meets AJ at her favorite coffee shop, she can’t help but feel an immediate attraction to him. At the same time, she knows there’s more to his story than what he’s letting on. And then there’s the handsome Doctor Regan, who she feels a connection with, but is she trying to make it more than is really there in order to spare her the heartbreak of being with AJ?
Only adding to her problems is the new resident, Dr. Jeffries, who seems out to get her from day one, and a murder case she can’t help solve without revealing her own secrets.
Can Nardia uncover the secrets of her own past while still moving forward and saving those in need of her help in the present?

When I first started reading Banished from Grace, I had no idea what to expect. I was intrigued by the main character, Nardia, and the special gifts she possessed. I wanted to know more about her and what she was exactly. The more I read, the more questions I had. I wanted my answers, but I was patient and continued on reading. I finally began to get answers and I was really pulled into this world that Aria Williams created. I could relate it to other books I had read, but I still felt that this was original in it’s own way.
Overall, I really enjoyed Banished from Grace. There were times I felt it was dragged out, but then I was pulled right back in to the story and time would pass without me realizing it. Like Nardia, I had an instantly liking to AJ and an immediate distaste for Dr. Jeffries. When the book ended, I was caught off guard and most certainly left hanging. I am interested to see what happens next for Nardia and hope to find out sooner rather than later!
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars!
