Seriously before I say anything else can we just take a moment to admire the cover of this book.
Ok, now as for the story. While I have to agree with several of my friends this is not my favorite Mary Calmes series and honestly I can't say this is my favorite book of the series because that was 'Easy Evenings' but this is a very, very close second.
I absolutely loved Essien and Roark together and the story that was going on here was excellent but like my friend Renee, whose review is far better and more detailed than mine (go here to see Renee's review https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1445453261?book_show_action=false&from_review_page=1)
I absolutely wanted more...maybe, that's Mary Calmes' secret always leave them wanting more.
So now that I'm done with Ms Calmes and her Mangrove stories I'm back to my Christmas stories.
