Angel at the Paradise Hotel
Glimpse the angelic backstory of life as an idyllic Corfu resort is visited by evil
When tourism transforms a fishing village on the green and beautiful Greek island of Corfu, old hatreds, envy and greed threaten to tear the community apart. Behind the scenes, personal demons fuel division while guardian angels battle to neutralize their influence…
Hotelier Jason - planning to get rich - ruthlessly chases his goal, unaware of the trouble and danger he is stirring up. Three visitors from Ireland, America and Wales bring their own problems. Clare, running from a broken relationship, is drawn into a love triangle with Jason.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I am usually wary of books that have religious themes - especially once they mention God but this one did not have a pious self righteous tone at all. Nor did it attempt to 'convert'., The story was sweet with a touch of bitter and ultimately left me feeling lighter and with a feeling of hope. ~ Kate Merson (Reviewer), NetGalley
Angel at the Paradise Hotel, is an inspiring, touching and moving novel for the ages, generating faith, optimism and, above all, hope. A very enjoyable read, which I highly recommend! ~ Georges N. Chamchoum, Emmy and multiple award-winning Film Director and Producer
Teresa's highly inspirational and illuminating debut novel is full of intrigue, heart, depth and meaning, sprinkled with an array of colourful, identifiable characters. A guaranteed page-turner, which has tremendous potential for adaptation to the silver screen. ~ Brett Syson, Consultant/Producer on six official Oscar submissions for Best International Film
Take this book down to the beach in the morning, and I guarantee when you return sunburnt to your room at the end of the day you will see no one around you, from waiters to fellow holidaymakers, in the same way. The characters seeking escape amidst the idyllic beauty of Corfu never manage to shake off the problems they have run from, while O’Driscoll beautifully captures the intrigues of a tightly knit traditional Greek community. ~ Donald Finnaeus Mayo, Author of The Insider’s Guide to Betrayal and Francesca
With Teresa’s artistic skill in painting the exotic island of Corfu, its beautiful setting seems ideal for a gentle story of romance with a happy ever after ending. But there are forces of light and darkness at work and the arrival of angel Gabriella is key to a great adventure which challenges the reader to choose sides. ~ Pauline Lewis, Author of Freya's Fragrance and The Dark Stranger
