Some times we do some some strange things in the name of love. Some people can be obsessive, violent, and worst of all they can be coned. Following blindly for your lover only to find that they used and left you. Love the twists and turns in this story!
The part that bothered me is the words that i couldn't understand. I have a large vocabulary and these big words or unfamiliar words kinda annoy me. I checked each word out for meaning and then reread the sentence. It was kind of a hassle. This story is amazing on its own without "Word of the Day" words thrown in. There were other inportant characters in the book and I felt that the most complex people were the proffessor and the jewelry maker! I was given this book to review from the author/publisher through Reading Alley and in exchange I give my unbiased opinion.
