Jan Bowles has a talent that I haven’t seen in many books lately. Ms. Bowles brought these characters to life so easily I could hear Eva’s English accent. I loved that these two share so many things in common yet deny the attraction is there. Though their pasts are heartbreaking they do love each other. The story line definitely kept its pace, which I liked in this type of story. Jack and Eva are definitely two peas in a pod yet like oil and water they sure do have their ups and down. Loved it.
