Born in Madrid, Spain, when Victoria was only six months old, her adventurous parents boarded a plane towards a faraway land in search of riches: Australia. Not speaking a word of English, with two little babies and just enough money to buy a used car, they set out to discover the Aussie outback. Truly innocent of the dangers they encountered at times, they crossed smothering-hot deserts, swam in deadly waters, befriended aborigine tribes, and mined for opals. Twelve years later and yearning for home, the family moved back to Spain… Victoria's love for travel, history and adventure had been cemented.
During one of her many travels around the world, Victoria met a handsome American. She now lives in the United States with her husband and two lovely children, and is currently at work on her next novel.

I got this for free during 'Read an Ebook Week' and do not think it is worth $7.99. I give the author props for a neat premise and a very gripping prologue, but as I got further into the book it started to drag a little. The dream sequences were not as interesting as the real-life mystery, and certain turns of phrase made it clear that English is not the author's native language. The book has promise, but it needs a bit of an edit, and at a commercial-level price like this one, readers deserve a book that's had one. I checked the author's website and she seems like a neat person, I will keep an eye out for her other stuff. But this book imho is not worth $7.99 in its current state.
