WHAT READERS SAY ABOUT TWO-MILLION-SELLING FAITH MARTIN WRITING AS MAXINE BARRY
“Perfect romance and mystery!” M. Adlington
“A great read and a fast paced romantic adventure.” Laura T.
“An enjoyable book. Romance with a little intrigue too.” Alexandra
“Totally loved it.” Yona
“When you reach the end you will wish there was still more.” Reader
I don’t normally read and review these kind of romance books but as Faith wrote it and Joffe published it I thought I’d give it a go.
The book follows Oriana Foster after she has been released from prison for a murder she didn’t commit.
She then has to find out who did actually commit it and get them arrested.
In between her finding out who the guilty person was there are a couple of love interest plots woven into the story for her and her bodyguard to make the romance side of the book interesting.
Overall it fits the genre perfectly and the mystery part of the storyline kept me interested in it.
