My Thoughts On The Book: I have never read anything by Valerie Bowman, but I will read her again. She is amazing. She is the kind of author that draws you into the book before you realize what has happened. The romance in the story was sweet. The characters were life like. From start to finish I could not put it down and cannot wait for another. Great read, Great author!
