I have yet again discovered a series that I can’t put down. Never before did I hear about this series / author and I am so overjoyed that I did now. It would have been too good a series to miss. Sarra Cannon has constructed a plot so gripping and characters so relatable, it is simply astonishing how it beholds the mind of the reader. I feel the book is a perfect start to the series. It makes you comfortable with the whole setting and the characters before you move onto the next book. Harper is a very simple girl with her head in the right place. She knows where she stands in life and despite her loneliness, she is very amiable and trustworthy. She deeply feels for not having a family to look upto. She is always looking for love and comfort.
Jackson Hunt, is your typical mysterious , handsome character with spiky hair and green eyes , so intense, it’s almost as if you can see the world reflect in them. And as obvious as it is, they are made for each other. Duh! The town is nothing as it seems and Harper is in for a long ride that will make her previous experience at foster homes seem like child’s play.
MUST READ FOR ALL!!
Rating – 5 stars (on 5) – this book deserves nothing less…
