Sophia Nash weaves a wonderfully romantic story that successfully entertains and pulls at the readers emotions. I really like both Georgiana and Quinn, they are both independent and passionate people, who have suffered tragedy, and now deserve to find love and happiness.
I also enjoy the cast characters in the story, Ms. Nash pens them and their personalities so well that you cannot help but like them and become curious of their fates. Sometimes minor characters are an annoyance and take away from the storyline, but not so in this book, each character is well-rounded and adds depth, humor and tenderness to the tale.
