Firstly thank you to Caitlin for my proof copy and apologies for my delay in reviewing …school holidays !!
I whizzed through this and like previous books from Tasmina I was transported into a different place . Beautifully written which creates a descriptive atmospheric read.
Full of secrets and scandal this is addictive reading !
We are presented with a love that’s forbidden and the drama that comes with it. But not just in the past but the present .
Doubts and heartache make it incredibly difficult for jim to evaluate the situation objectively
Reading a Tasmina perry book guarantees perfect escapism with romance .
