Publisher's Summary

"It's true what they say, you know: If you talk to God, you're religious; but if you hear from God, you're schizophrenic."
When a car accident leaves a famous movie star in a coma, nurse Kemp McAvoy thinks he has found his ticket to the life he's always wanted. As a med school dropout who was on his way to becoming an anesthesiologist, Kemp has the knowledge to carry off the crazy plan he concocts: adjust the star's medication each night and pretend to be a heavenly visitor giving her messages. He recruits her agent and a down-and-out publisher to make sure the messages will become the next spiritual bestseller and make them all rich. But his girlfriend's daughter, Leah, keeps telling people that she is seeing angels, and her mother and her teachers are all afraid that something is wrong. Before it's all over, they'll all learn a few things about angels, love, and hope.

A winner

A great book with good characters. A mixture of Gordon Korman humor with a Mary Higgins Clark feel good story. Cheesy... Yes but sometimes life needs a good cheesy novel to relax and laugh.

Unexpectedly Entertaining

What made the experience of listening to Wonders Never Cease the most enjoyable?

The story, first of all. Good balance of drama, intrigue and humor. Storyline was pretty tight, and it had just the right amount of characters.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Emmet and oddly enough Olivia. Emmet, since he becomes the unsung hero and Olivia because she's the target of this swinish scheme and her reactions are very humorous.


Which scene was your favorite?

There were a couple:
Bobby acting as the angel.
Any scene where Emmet is involved.
Olivia in the talk shows.
Bobby in the book signing line.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when Emmet laid down the law about putting words in God's mouth.


Any additional comments?

Tim Gregory - is the other major element that makes this audiobook very worthwhile. His ability to switch between character is almost seamless. The man's got talent, a lot of it!

Tim Downs has impressed me twice now with the Shoofly Pie and this story. I've actually ordered 2 more of this books as a result - Head Games and Plague Maker as they are more my kind of genre - suspense/thriller.

Mr. Downs, please try to get more of your books converted to audio and please try to get Tim Gregory to narrate them. If you do, you certainly have my business!
