Review by: Bellcanto on Oct. 03, 2012 :
At last Stella Riley is back through the wonders of e-publishing.
I first discovered this author when I read 'A Splendid Defiance' in 1985 and immediately fell in love with Justin Ambrose. Then I found 'The Marigold Chain'; and again her magic worked - but this time I discovered Alex. Wow! Now, with the release of this re-worked edition you can see a slightly different style and, with changed scenes, it's like having another book in your collection. Wonderful.
The chase through the streets of London was really exciting and well-researched. However, one of the most touching moments was following Danny's death and the embrace on the Falcon Stairs. I did shed a tear at that point.
I love it. I can only hope she does the same with 'A Splendid Defiance' so I can once again fall for Justin.
Welcome back Stella Riley!
