Madeleine Sutter was once the belle of the ball at the popular resort town of Misty Lake, New York. But as the sole survivor of the community’s worst tragedy, she’s come under suspicion. Longing for the life she once enjoyed, she accepts a rare social invitation to the event of the season. Now she will be able to show everyone she’s the same woman they’d always admired—with just one hidden exception: she awoke from the accident with the ability to heal.

Doctor Jace Merrick has fled the failures and futility of city life to start anew in rural Misty Lake. A man of science, he rejects the superstitious chatter surrounding Maddie and finds himself drawn to her confidence and beauty. And when she seduces him into a sham engagement, he agrees to be her ticket back into society, if she supports his new practice—and reveals the details of her remarkable recovery. But when his patients begin to heal miraculously, Jace may have to abandon logic, accept the inexplicable—and surrender to a love beyond reason…

My Review

This historical novel is an amazing and intense reading with a fabulous heroine, an amazing setting and interesting plot.
Maddie was a lively girl, always dressed elegant and takes part in many parties along with her inseparable friends. But one night there was a bad accident, her friends have died and she went into a coma. She had miraculously and inexplicably awakened. She also acquired the gift of healing. In the small town near New York in which she lives, however, everyone hates and despise her for what has happened. They consider and treat her like a monster and blame her for the death of her friends. The new village doctor, Jace Merrick, is intrigued and attracted to this girl and to the halo of magic and mystery that surrounds her. He wants to help Maddie to reintegrate into society, is willing even to pretend to be her boyfriend. This fake relationship requires them to spend much time together, will have the opportunity to know each other better and to discover that there is a strong chemistry between them. Will their relationship work?
All the characters are well-developed and well-defined, even the secondary ones. The author presents them gradually, as they interact with the two protagonists. Maddie is a great character. She's a strong woman to survive to hatred, indifference, isolation, disappointment, jokes. She's a good person, kind who loves animals and likes to help people who suffer. Jace is a practical man, he doesn't believe in miracles and magic, he believes only in science. He's intelligent, charming and it is a pleasure to see him interact with Maddie. I like their relationship, are two different people who complement each other.
I'm happy to be the first book in a series, I can not wait to read more.
This was a great read that left me turning the pages, eager to know what was going to happen next. A must read that I completely loved !!!
