I received this book free from Netgalley for an honest review.
I am a huge fan of Jude Deveraux so when I saw this title on Netgalley I jumped at the change to read it. This is the 5th book that I have read of Jude's and was not disappointed with it. I have to admit that I wasn't liking the story when I started reading it. However, once I got deeper in to the book and on Part 2 of it I really started liking it. I think the Mystery that Jude threw in there fit the book well and help me understand the characters better.
The parts that I didn't like was that she threw in the short Novella of Frank and Miranda in the beginning which I don't think was needed. I think that they could just have started off with Chelsea and Eli right away.
All in all I thought it was a good story and keep me interested once I got to Eli and Chelsea's story. That is why I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. I would recommend reading this book and I don't feel you have to read the previous books in this series of Jude's to understand it as she gives you enough of a back story.
