Book 1 in the award winning 'Angel' series ...Sarah is having a bad day! At 37 1/2 life is going nowhere fast. She's been dumped by her latest boyfriend, again! She's lost her latest job, again! And her mother's driving her mad, again! To top it all, she can't even have a moan in peace without Clarabelle piping up every two minutes trying to cheer her up, again! Clarabelle is, of course, Sarah's 'Guardian Angel, ' whose job it is to constantly keep Sarah's spirits up - an annoying distraction to say the least! Clarabelle certainly has her work cut out where Sarah is concerned!...Having reached rock bottom, Sarah reluctantly accepts Clarabelle's help, growing gradually from a chaotic, lost young woman into the person she always wanted to be. With the angel's help she is ready at last for her soulmate Simon to enter her life...Throughout her journey a team of angels have regular 'inter-angel-cy' meetings, mapping out and planning Sarah's life for her, often getting it very wrong with hilarious results! ...Sarah's story brings hope, magic and inspiration from the beginning right through to its uplifting conclusion; drawing the reader into an emotional rollercoaster that will make you laugh, cry and ultimately leave you with a smile on your face and quite possibly with an empty box of tissues!

Review quote

"I don't normally read books, in fact I never read books, and well your book blew me away! I didn't want to put it down!"; "I couldn't put it down! Can't wait for the next one"; "Beautifully written from a loving heart, I can't wait for the next book."; "This book has everything; you'll be laughing out loud one minute and reaching for a tissue the next and when you get to the end you will be screaming for more!"; "Here is a book you should read! Watch out for this Author!"; "Fantastic book I loved every minute of it, can't wait for the next one."; "Grab this book! You won't regret it."; "A wonderful book to snuggle up on the sofa with as the nights draw in."; "This is a very enjoyable story that will make you smile from beginning to end. Angel on My Shoulder is Julie Poole's debut novel and I do believe she is an author to follow." Eye Review; "Angel on my Shoulder is an excellent story that deserves to be read by anyone with a heart."; "Angel on My Shoulder is a fun and inspirational book."; "Bridget Jones with wings! It's funny, light-hearted though with its share of poignant moments, and downright bawdy in places."; "This book was a surprise - it covers some difficult subject matter which I was pleased to find sensitively written. I found Sarah endearing and believable, her angel made me laugh, always plotting and guiding the resistant Sarah into situations to help her see herself clearly. Clearly a lot of love has gone into this book and I really enjoyed the touch of magic that is woven throughout. The book has good flow and I felt the characters interacted well within the book. I enjoyed it and will be reading the follow-up book to find out what the mischievous angels have in store next." Two Hot Mama's Book Blog.
