This is the first book in a series. If the rest of the series is on the same par as this book, we are in for a real treat. Book one has got the series off to a flying start. I was enthralled from the first page and it gripped me right the way through to the last page.
This is more than a romance, much more. I don’t want to give away anymore of the storyline. Suffice it to say, Ali Spooner has researched well and included some well known historical facts for Sasha and Milly to experience.
These characters are lovable, well developed, multi-faceted and interact so well together, it’s like watching a well rehearsed play unfold. Ali Spooner has perfected the art of showing, not telling and has already proven herself time and again with her fantastic storytelling. This book is a testament that once again Ali has written a winner. The story is well written and flows along at a nice pace. From the scenic descriptions, I could immerse myself in the story completely and live it with Sasha, Milly and their family and friends.
I’m looking forward to reading the second book in this promising series very much.
