I read the book in two days because it kept me wanting to know more about the characters. The book is easy to read. It is a good book

I am not one for love storys but this book was a great read. Just enough romance to make you hope for the ending you want. This book made for a very good read. I enjoyed the plot and the details the writer provided.

Love the story and the character in the story. I like it so much that I bought more books from the author. I also bought the second and third series of In The Garden of Temptation. Iam reading the second book and it's also very good story it hard to put down.

I found this book to be an excellent historical romance novel, especially for a freebie book. Cynthia Wicklund is an entertaining author that can make your pulse race along with the characters in her book. I would highly recommend this author.

In The Garden of Temptation by Cynthia Wicklund, the characters and plot are tightly woven and play well together. The only negative that I would attribute, is that at times--the sense of flow is disrupted by a bit too much unnecessary background information. I'm all for a story well built and on firm ground, but there are times when it can be a bit overdone. I look forward to reading more in the series and becoming involved with more of Ms. Wicklund's characters!

First half of book was alright but the second half got me hooked kept on wondering how it would turn out. Interesting read. I liked it. . . .

I'm pretty sure I got this as a freebie, so to be honest I didn't expect much. But the story got me wrapped up right away, and had enough suspence and sustinance to keep me reading right through the end. Don't let the cover decieve you, this isn't really a smut novel. Sure, it has a few steamy scenes, but they're tastefully done so your imagination is left to put it all together. Bottom line, I would recommend this book. It was a fun, easy read that I finished in two days' time.

I have to admit that I really enjoyed this story. The pages turned quickly and I kept finding myself sitting at my desk wishing the day to go by faster so I could get back to the story to see what happened next. I have not ever been a romance novel gal, but after a few of these good reads I am in line!

I found my self constantly passing pages. They spent time discribing thingd that werent important. Drove me nuts. I struggled with that and with how much the heroine would lack back bone. She was a mess.
