Starting with Jerome: his first-person voice my confidence wavered in. (Did that sentence make sense to you?) Some aspects of it are believable; some parts aren't. It doesn't detract from his character overall, at least. Heidi's third-person POV is a little more of a struggle, especially since we see her steeped in troubles from the very start; first impressions do matter on a reader. Her family is oddly 2D, which doesn't contribute to her as a character. The plot is shaky. After the turning-point where Heidi becomes disconnected from her body, the pair zoom somewhat sporadically all over town, an unclear motive in mind for both of them. Heidi wants to leave a final parting message while Jerome's trying to cover his butt and also figure things out, but neither seem to have any sort of aim or path towards accomplishing these objectives. Thus, when the somewhat-antagonist finally makes his move, the reader is confident -- no, demanding -- they're finally going to get answers... in turn making his believability suspect. This book is spare. It's no surprise that the romance lasts one page, with no hope of revival. While, beyond the plot, there are no glaring defects in Devine Intervention, it simply doesn't inspire any sort of emotional response from the reader.

A good read, but I have mixed feelings on the ending of the book since it leaves so many questions unanswered. Fun, and intriguing in more ways than one.
