A Rush of Wings is basically an unedited version of Halos with the character names and setting changed. Otherwise it's the same.
Noelle is running away from home and from her painful past. She lived all her life in her rich father's protective bubble, and now she's leaving the nest. She takes up lodging at a ranch in the mountains owned and operated by two brothers. Morgan is the wild child; Rick is the perfect child. Morgan captures her heart at first.
The obsession with seeing halos is replaced with an obsession for hearing the flapping of wings (hence the title).
Instead of a short, novella-style book, we have a long-winded, typical Kristen Heitzmann book.
The characters are as bad as ever. Rick is the perfect male lead without flaws; Noelle is the scared female lead with secrets. Someone from her past is stalking her, blah, blah, blah. We've heard it all before.
I think Noelle should have had to endure consequences for running away instead of falling onto a perfect male cushion. Nobody learns anything in the end.
There are several plot holes at the end, including how Kristen worked out a way for everything to turn out perfect at the end. Several "bad" characters become good and the one "bad" character that doesn't become good just dies.
Basically, I was not impressed by this book because I've heard it all before.
