{excerpt}
Chapter 4After we came back from our sightseeing trip I was completely relaxed. Nobody recognized me, it was great! I was able to really have fun as a tourist, enjoying just being a normal person again. I hadn’t been able to do that since I was fourteen and I didn’t realize how much I missed it. Being a celebrity you’re recognized wherever you go, people come up to you for autographs, or to take pictures. You have no sense of freedom to just be yourself there’s always a mask that you have to wear. But now ironically, I was wearing a disguise but I wasn’t wearing a mask. I was free to be myself. And it gave me hope that maybe I could still have a life.
{about the author}
I currently live in Miami Florida. I went to FAU for accounting but my real love has always been books and I’m excited to start doing what I truly love. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved books more than anything else. I remember my father bringing me a collection of stories. And I remembered reading them and being transported to new and amazing worlds. Worlds where magic carpets existed, places full of adventure. And ever since then, I’ve never stopped reading. But what I wanted to do was to create my own stories and now the time is right to start sharing those stories with other people.

I’m lucky to live close to the beach. I love going with my family and friends and getting inspired with the gorgeous view of the ocean. I’m currently working on a couple of new novels, the second and final book of The Tenor’s fall, should be out in late 2013.


{my thoughts}
This was a refreshing read. It was a very good story in which we encounter romance and a mystery-thriller. We watch a new couple struggle with the being together during a difficult time and learning how to overcome those obstacles together. There are a few editing issues that I would suggest be fixed but it didn't take away from the story at all. Or maybe I'm just used to being able to read around them as I beta read for others. Anyway you look at it this is a great story and worth getting. Right now it's FREE on Amazon so be sure and grab yourself a copy!
