    Love & Romance at its Best!

    Poppy Valente is beautiful, wealthy and a woman recovering from the heartbreak of losing her wife to breast cancer. Julia Johnson is a single mother with an infant daughter and a secret. The two women meet when Poppy comes to Julia¿s rescue in a difficult situation. Crisis averted, they part ways, each going back to their own life. Needless to say, both women are surprised when they meet again at a most unexpected place. Unbenownst to Poppy, Julia has gone to the same island resort Poppy arrives at shortly thereafter to recover from her loss. A beautiful and peaceful resort Julia learns, unexpectedly, that Poppy owns and has built as a tribute to Carly, Poppy¿s deceased wife. In an effort to jump-start her recovery, Poppy befriends Julia and volunteers to play ¿tour guide¿ for both mother and child, showing them around her island. As the three of them spend more and more time together, both women realize that something is happening. Feelings that began as friendship are evolving into something more. Julia becomes certain that she wants a chance at a life with Poppy. Poppy thinks she wants a life with Julia. She just can¿t help feeling like she¿ll be betraying her deceased wife if she allows herself to take what is being offered. However, it seems that ¿someone¿ is trying to get Poppy to let go and live again. As if things aren¿t difficult enough, will the revelation of Julia¿s secret take away this new chance at happiness for them both? Who from Julia¿s life will do their best to see that happen? Ali Vali¿s newest offering, Carly¿s Sound is a book with a serious message, interspersed with spots of humor as well as drama and unfolds a tale of lost love, dedication, determination and strength of heart that will capture even the most stoic of readers. Her first book, The Devil Inside captured and held readers spellbound. The sequel, The Devil Unleashed due to be released December 2006, will certainly prove a definitive talent has been let loose.

    Great!

    Not only a well written Romance, but also a great allegory for someone who has lost a love and feels they can never love again!
