Total page-turner!! LOVED every second- which is rare for me, I usually think books start out really dry and boring. But, right from the beginning, you are thrown into the cut-throat world of the 1930's! War, love, riches, poverty and mystery- what's not to love?! I CANNOT wait for the second book to come out! Hands down my favorite book right now!
I was shocked when I started reading this book that it is written in present tense. I didn't think the author could pull that off for an entire book but she does and she pulls it off amazingly! I started this book and it captured me. Infact because life is busy I hide the book, out of sight out of mind approach, so I would stop reading (doesn't help when you know where you hid it). I could not get the story line out of my mind so I retrived the book promising myself I'd only read it for 1/2 hour. I couldn't stop though, it was TOO good. I just had to finish it. Yes, it completely captured me and I loved being caught. Yes, I highly recommend this book.
I couldn't put it down!!!! The absolute best character development. I found myself loving people so fast!! Every girl is going to fall in love with the love interests.
