This book was a page turner, featuring lead characters that will capture your heart! Miss Julia Marsden is caring for her nephew, Charlie, when in marches Douglas Hawke, the Sixth Earl of Eastbourne, bound and determined to wrest him away from Julia...Each are hostile and suspicious
of the other...it is quite beautiful to watch the evolution of their relationship. Charlie is a wonderful character, and to see the devotion that Julia has for him, is very sweet. She is an honest, caring, and lovely person. Julia does not resent the sacrifices that she has made in caring for the precious child.
Gradually, Douglas begins to doubt his preconceived notions about the gentle and kind Julia. They will have to learn to trust one another and work together to outwit the forces that are working against them.
Garden of Shadows is a captivating read...Meara Platt's descriptions of the scenery in this book are so vivid! It is very easy to become immersed in this enchanting story....mystery, suspense, a lovely romance, humor...this book has iit all!
Don't miss this amazing read! I am eagerly anticipating the release of the next book!
I loved Julia. She is nurturing, intuitive, and smart and what most parents would aspire to be to young Charlie. Charlie is endearing and cheeky - I adored him. Douglas was multi-faceted....ridiculously wealthy, but has some figurative scars, as well. His mother is something else. I don't think Amazon would like me call her what she is. ;)
There were twists and turns, some that even my jaded mind did not expect at all. I liked the pacing of the story. I got it on my Kindle yesterday, and am finished with it today because I devoured the story. I can't wait for the second one.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
Faeries, dragons and their king come to life in this well crafted story of magic, mistrust and the powerful human emotion called love. The pages leap to life with mystical lights, delightful waltzes and perfumed gardens of bluebells.
This paranormal, set during the Regency era, has the heroine, Julia, facing two men who threaten to destroy her happy home and steal away the only family she has left.
Julia's fierce protection and determination to keep her little boy safe, will touch the heart of every mother and has you fighting right beside her.
Douglas, a hero you can't help but fall in love with, battles his own demons as well as the mystical ones.
A little boy that will tug your heart strings, and a plot that will keep you hooked until the very last page, once again, Meara Platt has delighted us with a superb story that will stay with you well after the last page.
