I live in Melbourne, Australia and have a full-time office job, but my real passion is writing. I write on the train to and from work most days in a notepad and type it up on the weekend. My email address is MarilynGMcPherson@gmail.com if you want to email me about any of my books. Thanks to everyone who has left a review.

The book was exciting from the start, which kept me interested. I liked the fact that the beginning was really not what it seemed. There were several interesting twists along the way. I would have liked to have seen Lucy use more of her 'gift'. Admittedly there were a couple times I would have liked to have seen more action. For a moment I thought Steph was going to get into a 'cat' fight with Lucy, and I was kind of hoping for it. I loved Lucy and Wills characters and was pleased with the ending. I do agree that the events in the end were resolved too quickly. As I got closer to the end I wondered how the Salesman was going to come into play. For a moment I thought it'd be left open for a sequel. Overall an excellent book!

I relished this book and couldn't put it down. Marilyn has a delightful way of developing her characters, so that the reader connects with them. However she leaves enough secret that you are compelled to read on and some parts had me on the edge of my seat. I was completed enamored with her charming characters and loved the familiar Victorian setting. I am looking forward to finding out what happens in the next installment.

A great debut by Marilyn McPherson. The story is compelling and moves along at a good pace, with lovely detail about the small town that Lucy comes from. The author has a great way of writing conversation between the protagonists that feels natural and un-forced, providing a lot of insight into the motivations of each character. My only small criticism is that I felt that events in the final part of the book were resolved too quickly and easily, but maybe that was a testament to how much I wanted to carry on spending more time with the characters!
