From the first pages is a novel full of suspense and pathos. It 's really well written with a strong pace, keeps you glued to the pages until the end. The prologue is really addictive, the descriptions are so vivid that we suffer and struggle together with the first poor victim of......
Doyle and Cody are going to crown their dream of love. They are a wonderful couple very much in love and very accomplice. But perfection does not exist and even they have big challenges. Doyle tries to help a friend in search of her missing sister. He'll make chilling discoveries.
The characters are truly charming and realistic. Doyle and Cady are amazing people separately and even better together and I love their relationship, their dialogue are really funny. It's very romantic the moment when Doyle finally gives an engagement ring to Cady.
I have not read the other books in the series, I did not know that was the third but I had no trouble understanding the story.
This is a wonderful historical mystery interlaces with suspense and romance.
I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.
I received an advanced reader copy from the author in exchange for an honest review
“Someone’s been in my room and taken things.”
His brow tightened. “How do you know?”
“I haven’t been able to find the lovely scarf you gave me. I assumed I’d lost it or left it behind when I met Grace for tea last week. Then today, I noticed one of your notes missing.”
“When you send a gift, you always include a card or note.”
“You kept my notes?” Doyle beamed.
“I’m a romantic, all right?” Hot with embarrassment, Cady lifted her chin and stared him dead on. “They’re precious. I’ll cherish them forever.”
His face softened. He skimmed a finger along her jaw and let it linger over her lips. At his touch, her body quickened.
“What did the note say?” When he removed his hand, the spell broke.
“Oh, it was the one about our first kiss, where I trembled beneath your fingers.”
“Ah, I recall.” His voice dropped a level.
The same finger he’d placed over her lips now traced the opening of her dress causing an immediate shiver of excitement. It slipped past the fastened buttons and stopped just over her heart. “Is anything else missing?” As easy as a breeze, he undid the button between her breasts.
“I don’t think so.” Even to her own ears, she sounded shaky.
“Are you afraid?” His finger darted inside and wiggled below the silky fabric of her corset and chemise.
“No,” she breathed.
He dipped his head, his mouth mere inches from hers and worked a few more buttons.
“Are you worried one of your roommates may harm you?” When his hand disappeared inside her dress and caressed her nipple, she gasped.
“Angry,” she mumbled, aware more of the physical sensations than logic and words.
“What?” It was as if he called to her in a fog.
“You’re trembling beneath my fingers, like the first time.” His words were a feather brush erasing all reason.
“Are you surprised?” she managed to ask.
“The way you tremble, the change in your breathing…” With a sweep of an arm, he slipped her on his lap.
Relieved and thrilled that the moment she’d waited for all night had arrived, she threw her arms about his shoulders. Her mouth fell hard on his, and she lost herself to a kiss that seemed wonderfully unending.
