Book 3: The Celestial Blues Trilogy

After learning that his wife, Evelyn, survived the attack that killed him fifty years earlier, angel/PI Griffin Shaw will risk everything to find her—an obsession that comes with a price. Grif has had to forsake his new love, journalist, Katherine “Kit” Craig—the woman who made his life worth living again—to find a woman he may not even recognize.

Yet when Kit is attacked again, it becomes clear that there are forces in both the mortal and heavenly realm determined to protect dark secrets buried in the past.

To survive, Grif must convince Kit to put aside her personal hurt and help him discover the truth—a dangerous journey that will put them in the crosshairs of enemies both old and new . . . and test the limits of what one angel will sacrifice for love.

What people are saying...

“Pettersson cleverly integrates this complicated tale of love and loss with plenty of action and investigation…”

~ Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This is urban fantasy at its finest and a trilogy that will stick in my mind, one that I’ll keep returning to again and again, for many, many years.”

~ Lit Stack

“Celestial Blues is one of the most unique concepts I’ve read so far. Kit is a heroine I won’t soon forget and her and Grif’s love story really resonated …The feel is very noir and the mystery is simple but thick with intrigue and well played out. Binge-read this baby, you won’t be sorry!”

~ Talk Supe

“Celestial Blues has always had a nostalgic feel to it, blending the past seamlessly into the present. The conclusion of THE GIVEN is wonderfully fitting for Griffin and Kit’s journey.”
