Can hardly wait till July when it comes out!!

Ms Vincenzi has become my "new favorite author," and the more of her books
you can make available to American readers, the happier I'll be. Have
just finished "Sheer Abandon," "An Absolute Scandal," and "The Dilemma."
And have read several others. Makes me think of...

Same Old Formula

Vincenzi is capitalizing on her time tested formula of throwing together unrelated characters into a common situation. This time it falls short. She needs to take a break and come back with something original and of the same quality as her earlier work.

    FANTASTIC!!!!

    I have read several of her other books, but this is without a doubt, the absolute best book I have read in a very,very long time. (I read a lot) The way the characters and their individual stories all connect together is absolute genius. I read this book in two days. I only wish there could be a sequel. I loved it that much.

    Great Book... I laughed... I cried...

    I loved this book. The story was enthralling and the characters were varied and well developed.
