I am SOO glad that I received this book, I absolutely loved this story!! I cannot wait to read the other two books she mentions coming out in this series.  I fell in love with Suzanne's writing from the first book sent to me, and I still love her books!  Definitely a book that will stay in my library to enjoy over and over again!  The style of Suzanne's writing kept me reading from front page to the last page, I could not put the book down!  316 pages $US 14.99 5 stars!!
