It took me awhile to get into this book but once I did I couldn’t put it down. I had to know who was causing all the problems and why they were doing them. I wasn’t shocked to find out who the bad people were but I was shocked to find out how and why they were doing the things they did. I knew who Emma would end up falling in love with but once again I was shocked at how things ended there as well. The author does a great job to describing the scenes and at times I felt like I was really there with the characters.
