It has been awhile since I have read a Candace Camp Romance and I cannot think of a reason why I stopped. This is a marvelous book and she is an amazing author. Her stories are intricate and compelling. This is a full length novel that will keep you reading late into the night. This book is a must read. Candace is a master at writing a complex plot that has mystery, conflict and always a wonderful resolution. She leads you to the villain by subtle clues that will left me guessing until I was 3/4 through the book.
