Alison Stone does a good job in developing her characters and describing her surroundings. I enjoyed the mystery and romance woven in this novel. This is not an on the edge of your seat suspense yet it is full of mystery and some suspense.

AnnE.5 Stars Out Of 5Loved it!October 4, 2016AnnE.Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This books merges the word of ballet with a murder mystery and is one that I really enjoyed. It is a combination of wonderful characters, faith, romance and some humor that pulled me in from the first pages and kept me reading to see what was going to happen next. The author also through one of her characters gives a touching look into Alzheimers and the effect it has not only on the person dealing with it but the family as well. I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review, and it is another one from this author that I certainly recommend.

I really enjoyed this book, I wasn't sure what to expect as I totally went off the cover only. Alison is a new author find for me, and I was not disappointed at some points I thought the book was predictable and then something would happen and then everything would change my way of thinking. Literally this book had me guessing all the way to the end. I did however not like Jayne's brothers they totally seems ugh(can't say much more without disclosing more then you might want to know). I loved that this is a clean read and that there is no strong language in the book. This book reminds me everything is not as they seem. if your looking for a book you can't put down that draws you in grab this one and have fun, you won't be disappointed.
