Editorial Reviews

Peer - Raquel Rios
Alright, my sister wrote the book and I am also one of the people she dedicates the book to, but nepotism aside, this book is really good!! I really identified with Becky and felt like I went through her heartbreak with her. I love how the story builds and how the author carried me through Becky's journey from heartbreak to love, again.

    Fun Brain Candy

    Grrrrr, lost my first review. Lemme try again.

    I highly recommend this book. I will warn you though, it gets a little steamy...I found myself looking over my shoulder on the treadmill...LOL.
    I was captivated by the characters and the enchanting locale. I fell right in love along with Becky. I laughed out loud, cried a little and smiled a lot.
    This was a fun read. Don't let the length of this book scare you off, it is fun brain candy that just flies.
    Cyndia did a fantastic job of wrapping up the storyline. I usually crave more, and wonder what happened after....not with this, it was all wrapped up in a neat little bow. Thanks so much,

    Ruth

    Check out this book

    If you are looking for a book that will allow you to escape into a romance without being put to sleep with syrupy sweetness of most romance novels, then this is the novel for you. I was able to identify with Becky as a Navy Vet and as an Ex-Navy wife, as she went through her divorce and went on to find herself and her new life. Do you need to escape a little? Escape with Becky to Scotland

    Highly Recommended

    In this book Cyndia Rios-Myers introduces us to two strong, smart and independant main characters, Becky and Robbie, who cant help but unknowingly save each other.

    The story centers around Becky who changes herself and her dreams to fit her husband. Something many females fear when it comes to taking the plunge. Ignoring her doubts she goes forward with the wedding and years later is left to face the consequences of her actions.

    With her fathers urging she sheds her current existance and embarks on a great adventure in a foreign land. The story unfolds simply and there are enough interesting twists to keep it exciting. Robbie and Becky's relationship grows nicely as the story line progresses.

    Because the story was written in a believable store line, it was easy to fall in love with both main characters. I had no trouble connecting with Becky. To give love a go a second time is very challenging.

    If you enjoy reading about breathtaking scenery, romance and a little spice this store is a greast way to spend the day!
