I received this ARC for my review. I must say I couldn't put it down. It was terrific. The characters were well written and believable, the plot was also well thought out. It had everything, mystery, excitement, an interfering family and of course love, you then have the ingredients for a beaut book. And wasn't that so very good. Woe betide anyone who wanted to hurt his girl, mind you the girl (lower school teacher and artist) wasn't backward in coming forward to protect what she thought was hers!!! Just get the book, it's terrific!!
