I enjoyed the story a lot and felt that it was a good read. Overall the Pros:
The story was well written
The descriptions were beautiful and i could imagine everything
The love story and mystery were well thought out.
It was 500+ pages!!
The Cons:
I disliked the main character. She just drags Tristan and Oliver around like puppets and fool them both into thinking they were the one. She said that she loved both of them but i found it insulting how she could date them both at once.
The story was slightly confusing at times and i skimmed some passages because i was not interested at times.
The characters are 18 yet they act a lot older than their age! If you want to write about teenagers at least make the dialogue somewhat realistic.
While i liked the story i feel no pressing need to read further in the series. It was a good book but it was not captivating.
The author claims the 2 and 3 volume are free but they aren't even for sale! I only see the last book of the series for sale. The author should take off that comment because it is obviously not true.
Overall i enjoyed this free romance mystery novel and reccomend it to anyone looking for a sweet romance and mystery novel. The book was well written bur it gets confusing at times. It exceeded my expectations for a free book.

Reads like a diary or newspaper article rather than a novel. Narrative is built as play-by-play directives instead of building descriptors. Characters are shallow and not believable. Dialogue lacks any common vernacular and does not compliment the characters. The plot is just not intriguing enough to carry through these serious writing flaws. Had to quit reading 65% the way through.

    You should read this book and the series.

    A girl moves from California to England with her family and isn't happy about it until she meets a guy, no, two guys. And it all begins. Adventure, romance, mystery...............

    Cons: the author tends to over use the word lovely.
    And thats it.

    recommend

    I just randomly picked this book to read. I down loaded it to my nook and got caught up in it. I've read all three books. For a quick read it's not to bad.
