This is the fourth book in the series but the first book that I have read by the author Sarah Darlington. I was not aware that it was part of a series until I finished it and was about to write this review, so it is a complete stand-alone as well. I found the story to be very entertaining and the characters were full of history, pain, and soul searching. I would very much like to read more by this author as I totally enjoyed this book.

I received a free copy of the book and have voluntarily written an honest review.
