This collection was dedicated to a high school friend of mine, Anne Gillis Benedetto, who passed in January of 2017. She was a lovely lady who had a beautiful smile, a fabulous sense of humor and a heart of gold. She is missed by me and many other friends. I kept her alive by writing the first story in the book, An Angel Among Us, for which the book was named, just for her. I share notes from her to me and back again in the book. I hope it will touch your heart as it touched Anne’s and mine.
A collection of short stories that covers several genres including romance, grief/loss, mystery, suspense, sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal. This book is dedicated to a courageous friend who passed this year. The first story is specially created for her and is the inspiration for the title of this book.

I downloaded the book just in the morning. I wanted to have a little peak only, but starting to read, guess what?
I couldn’t stop reading. Particular the first story, about Janice friend Anne.
But each story is different, diverse and engaging, and wonderfully told. I laughed, I cried, I smiled.
I have read many books for her already, and was never disappointed.
Janice is really a great story teller. I love her books
The collection of short stories in An Angel Among Us run from inspirational to contemporary so science fiction. I liked the difference as I am a big fan of short story collections. In the hustle and bustle of modern life there is always time for a short story. Janice Spina is a good story teller and you can tell by her work she has a caring and kind heart. A nice collection that will keep you interested and engaged – heartwarming, at times sad, but also uplifting.
I have read many of Janice Spina’s books and have never been disappointed. She writes with clarity and warmth. She doesn’t shy away from delving into another genre, as is evidenced by this eclectic collection of short stories.
The author’s tribute to her friend is heartwarming and is just the first story in this delightful collection. I recommend An Angel Among Us to everyone, as there are stories from multiple genres that are sure to appeal. This book can be read all at once or story by story. It is perfect for those who don’t have a lot of time but want something to read with their coffee or before bed or whenever they have a few minutes without committing to a full-length book.
An Angel Among Us gets a thumbs up from me.
This book was gifted to me. I was neither paid nor required to give this honest review.
Author Janice Spina is a prolific and eclectic writer, whose creativity knows no bounds and whose books entertain readers of all age groups. Having had the pleasure of reading many of Author Spina’s earlier works, I looked forward to reading her newest creation and am happy to report that her first-ever short story compilation is ever so gratifying.
“An Angel Among Us” is fabulous. The characters that populate the short stories are from all walks of life, real and well-developed. Their touching stories resonate, as the protagonists confront and face up to life’s many challenges. Loss, regret, love and hope are ingredients you’ll find in abundance in this stirring and heart-string tugging book. Highly recommended!
