Easy read, enjoyed it! But...
I loved the concept and the story. I even really enjoyed the characters. I just felt like the end was a little abrupt and I wanted the romance to be a notch above PG. I think there could have been a little more depth on that front without crossing any lines. I don’t regret reading it and I will continue reading Susanna’s books. Her stories always rope me in.
I love everyone of her books! I haven’t been able to stop reading them! And I get sad when the book is over!!
This is a very well written plot, filled with mystery and twists that will leave you amazed and satisfied. You will never predict the outcome of the plot and you will definitely fall in love with the characters. The romance is very well portrayed and the best part about it was that it is clean yet passionate.
