From the Shadows
on June 04, 2012
Loved this book! It had been a long time since I have read a 'real' romance novel and it was refreshing to experience a 'grown-up' story, one that didn't involve vampires, damsels in distress or the unrealistic naiveté of the heroine. I appreciated the credible description of the setting and found myself relaxing in the low-key vibe of the island. I would not have minded if the characters had to each work just a little harder to win each other over, but that is irrelevant when countered with the impressive way their longing was expressed and cleverly sustained.
I was especially happy with the ending. While it was anticipated (it is a romance novel after all) it guarantees nothing, leaving this story open for perhaps a sequel... Or two. I hope.
