Heartwarming,entertaining, endearing, and real....with characters you'll love. This is my second read and I enjoyed it quit well!

Another great read by Jude. her books are hard to put down. I love the way she puts a magical or supernatural spin to her stories. They add so much to her tales, but do not make them unrealistic in anyway. her stories of love are very believable and have great depth to them. They are not all about sex and predictable happy endings. Her characters really come alive. When finishing one of her books, I always want to run right out and get another one ASAP. One of my favorite authors.

I liked the way this book was written (switching back and forth between Jackie and Ford). It was a really interesting story but I prefer more realistic books. This book has a paranormal aspect.
