Lovely story, had action, romance, suspense and some great emotion, all in all the best ingredients for a good book.

I enjoyed the interaction between the main characters and would love to know what happens next in there lives so get working on that sequel!

What a wonderfully written book, with converging story lines that keeps the action moving. Getting inside the head of the various characters gives insight into their actions and decision-making. A fine example of how we all do the best with what we've got, and a lot of what we've got depends on what we start off with in life. Believable and sympathetic characters, and a storyline that keeps moving, all keep the reader cheering for the characters and hoping for the best for them, while at the same time fearing the worst.

I enjoyed reading this book - the characters were interesting, and the author's use of descriptive language was excellent. A lot of imagery accompanied the words. If you like a little bit of suspense, a little bit of romance, and a little bit of backstabbing, seasoned with some inappropriate choice-making, then you will love this book!

I was not too interested in this book. The story seemed to drag and it seemed disjointed. I had a hard time having any emotion whatsoever for the characters and the plot seemed to keep miscommunicating with itself. I do not recommend this as a read.

I by no means in my Blog want anyone to assume that if I give a bad review to the author or book that it has any bearing on the bravery it takes to write a novel. I also want to say that even though I did not find this particular book to my liking I am sure others will. The prose was well thought out in this novel it just was not my taste.
