This book is a real page turner!
Dylan “Oz” Oswin is a man with a mission. He is tracking down former child singing sensation Syrene, now known as Pippa James. Oz’s son Donal disappeared over a year ago and Oz has been getting cryptic messages from someone called the Librarian pointing him in Pippa’s direction. Reclusive Pippa is now a successful children’s author and has no use for Oz when she first meets him. She is convinced her unique vocal talents are responsible for the death of her first husband. Her fears make it impossible for her to open up to anyone else.
Oz eventually gets her to interact with him and the two discover there is a strong attraction between them. Neither one is looking for love. Pippa agrees to help Oz and discovers all kinds of information about her possible Malcolm family history. Most of way through this book it seemed impossible that it could ever have a happy ending. Never having read Ms. Rice’s earlier books about the Malcolm family, I was unaware of the significance of her real last name.
Once I started this book, I couldn’t stop reading it. Oz is using Pippa for his own ends but the reader can see how he is conflicted over his actions. Pippa is convinced she is relationship poison but she still wants to have love in her life. There are all kinds of plot twists that leave the reader wondering what the heck is going on but it all works in the end. I will have to go back and read the earlier books after reading this one.

Loved this book. I haven't read the previous stories about the Malcolm family, but this one stands on its own and gave me great pleasure. Rice walks a fine line between reality and fantasy, pulling readers into wondering where one ends and the other begins.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
