Enthralled readers of Angel Hero are saying:

“An enchanting narrative examining how love transcends all, especially our three-dimensional, physical world. Angel Hero will inspire you to have faith in the universe.”

—Rob Bignell, Author, Windmill and Love Letters to Sophie’s Mom

“Angel Hero is alive with feeling, both sexual and spiritual. By turns vivid and gritty, ethereal and romantic, this exquisite book tells a love story that evokes laughter, tears, and wonder in equal measure.”

—Elaine Leilani Madison, Ph.D., Professor of Literature, emerita, Hawaii Pacific University

“Lizbeth Hartz has a knack for choosing just the right word to paint the most compelling picture possible. From the moment I began reading Angel Hero, I was totally engaged. The interplay of refreshing humor and spine-tingling suspense had me alternately laughing and grabbing the edge of my chair. Part romance, part crime, part spiritual, and all heart, Angel Hero will take you on a wild ride you won’t ever forget.”

—Pratibha S. Eastwood Ph.D., STA/ISST, S.E.P., Author of Nine Windows to Wholeness, and Aging Is Not for Sissies (a play)

“Perhaps we should propose a new category of memoir, a fictionalized ‘true crime-true love’ genre, because that’s precisely where Angel Hero, Lizbeth Hart’s otherworldly, romance-murder mystery would fit. This is the kind of story where we fall in love with the spunky heroine, root for the deep-hearted good guy, and wonder whether the bad guy will ever get what’s coming to him. These are not stock characters, but sensitively drawn souls, and this is not a stock plot. Ms. Hartz adds another dimension to what might have been merely an entrancing tale — a spiritual dimension. She shines a light on the souls of the actors and investigates the karmic forces driving them and the outcome. Angel Hero is an engrossing and rewarding read. It is not to be missed.”

—Alice Folkart, novelist, memoirist, widely published poet, facilitator for on-line poetry forum Perfect Day for Poetry, co-administrator and participant in the Practice forum of the Internet Writing Workshop

“This is a book about an initially timid woman’s fight to find the courage to do something truly terrifying, and to find the love she has been denied throughout her life. As Lizbeth Hartz comes to experience a true love for one man, she is able to face  the bullying of another evil and mentally unstable man who terrifies everyone around her. Hartz is terrified too but fights back and, in the end, her courage delivers more love than she could ever have expected—both on Earth and in the spiritual realm beyond.

 Hartz writes at one point in the book: “And I’ll hone my writing skills until I can describe what happened so compellingly readers will clamor to read your story…. And everyone will know what a righteous dude you were, and that your spirit transcended the grave, …. I promise to get you in print, Vic, or die trying.”

In this gripping page-turner (I read it at one sitting) the ending is among the most powerful I have ever read. She has honored Vic as she promised to do so very long ago.

As a writing teacher, I read books on two levels; the story and the technical details. I also commend Lizbeth Hartz for excellent use of detail, for bringing all the senses into the story, for a solid plot arc, and for that ending that made a tough old veteran weep.”

—Stephen Morrill,
