First ever Erica James and it was a Delight

What did you like most about Gardens of Delight?

I loved this author's story and the narrator's voice was perfect . I was interested to see the stories unfold and how they merged and added new characters to the mix.This was my first Erica James but will certainly not be my last. Once started I could not put my iPod down. Lucky for me I bought another Erica James at the same time so it is time I was off to read another from Ms. James - looking forward to reading many more.


What other book might you compare Gardens of Delight to, and why?

I have not ready books like this , I usually really murder mystery but this was a refreshing change and one I was so glad I decided to buy
