A book for the Imaginative, Romantic Soul.
For those of you that allow a novel to be a great escape and don't stop to nitpick at the probability of occurrences, then this book is for you. I enjoy books that take me away from daily stressors and this one did the trick. I found the two main characters quite captivating. secondary characters were a mystery I couldn't wait to solve.
A journey well worth taking.

I fell in love with this book and immediately read it again after finishing to see if I could catch some of the clues the conclusion revealed and indeed, I did. This is one of those hard to put down books and Stephanie Murphy's sultry voice certainly keeps you hanging on to her every word. The story line flowed, the characters developed naturally without force and the mystery made for a really great read. Great job Natalie Vivien and Stephanie Murphy!
