This is such a wonderful book that for the first time in a long time as I was reading it I was in tears. The characters of Simone and Jackson connected with me in such a way that I felt like I was watching a classic movie instead of reading a book.
My heart broke for Simone along her journey and I cried out happily with her too. Ms. Hones pulled me into the world of Simone and Jackson and I was lost to it. I highly recommend this book and advise you keep a box of Kleenex nearby.
Ms. Hones, thank you for letting me get lost with Jackson and Simone and I willingly go with you on your next adventure.
Be careful what you wish for--it might come from beyond the grave to find you.
Simone O'Henley, recuperating at a remote lakefront cottage from a devastating broken heart, finds anything but rest. The noises and moans she hears coming out of a nearby grove of trees terrify her, but are soon tempered by the company of handsome Jackson Taylor. The locals have never heard of him and are convinced he's a land developer ready to snatch up their land at the first opportunity. He convinces Simone he is a simple caretaker looking over land for a friend, but her heart speaks the loudest. After he disappears, she travels far and wide to find him and the truth. A truth that turns her entire world upside down and throws everything she has ever believed into the winds of common sense and reason.
