This novel has its faults, a tried and true storyline that feels like it's pieces of her other novels and the original ending was a bit abrupt. I'm a bigger fan of her historical novels but I have liked all of her contemproaries thus far but EBYT fell a bit flat for me. However, when the paperback was released, McNaught reworked the ending (I think due to the outcry from her fans that something wasn't right about it) and it flows MUCH nicer now and the ending is perfect. Still not her best work but if you are going to read this novel, make sure you read the paperback.
While this is not McNaught's best work, her writing is better than most other books. Probably the weakest part of the book is the abrupt ending. I did enjoy reading it in spite of that.
I loved this book so much that I stayed up very late to finish it. It is a good escape and a great tale of true love.
A tightly drawn very romantic romance encompassing love, lust, murder, and a touch of evil. This is a real page-turner.
Unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and riveting suspense.
