Great romance with a bit of mystery! I loved this story and cannot wait for the next book!
Great story. Mystery plus some sizzling romance
Wonderful love story about 1st love and years later finding it again. They were young and had to make her disappear but now 10 yrs later she must return and claim what is hers (and not just the money, the man too!). Another great book by a great author.
As much as I love Carly Phillips this wasn't one of her better stories. Hopefully the next one will be better.
Not up to her usual best. I got bored but skipped around until I got to the end.
Liked this book, easy read, light romance, some mystery
Carly Phillips scores again! This book has a few more twists than her other books, which made it more interesting
There are two reasons though, which keeps me from giving it a perfect score: 1)It's a very sad story. Even the ending is a little sad. 2)I'm confused by certain relationships. I can safely say, without giving anything away, that it mentions the main character has only one living relative. Yet it also mentions that relative has a sibling. So I would assume this sibling would also be related to the main character. Hopefully someone can enlighten me.
loved this book. fast read
It is a romance, and only very mildly steamy. Thrust into her is used once that I noticed, the rest was steamy kisses and sparks flying, which is kinda lame. I dont really get into that romance stuff too much anyway. This does have a mystery, but you dont have to figure it out, as the author tells your right away who is innocent, who is genuine etc. So more of a romantic suspense to see if the characters finally learn what we the readers know.
I enjoy listening to book on audio, but sometimes I found the voice that reader used for our main female character to be annoying, and sugary sweet and made her sound weak, sappy and annoying.
Phillips first attempt at a little suspense, along with her usual light romance.
If you're a Carly Phillips fan, here's another winner.
Unfortunately for me, it seems she only has one book in her with variances on character and theme. All of her books now sound exactly the same, and trying her hand at romantic mystery wasn't a good fit. I couldn't even finish this book, and I'll read almost anything. It was about 90,000 words that should have been 60,000 at most.
I gave it one star because I couldn't give it less. It's the last Carly Phillips I'll ever waste time on.
Not as impressed with this book as other reviewers. The heroine starts out with the two high school friends, faking her death to escape an abusive uncle. The teen relationships are mostly airbrushed. The drama of living under an alias is mostly skipped. The book is filled with secondary characters that want their own sequel. Everyone seems to dump existing relationships at the drop of a hat. Seems like there are ideas that could have been interesting plot twists, but everything is very glossed over and the book is about 1/3 to 1/2 of the size it should be.
Wonderful story. Uplifting. Narrator was okay.
