Edenbrooke is a fabulous book full of laughs and tingles. Marianne is also loyal to a fault and put others needs ahead of her own, which helps explain why I think she purposefully chooses to ignore what’s right in front of her. I have read both of her books now and truly wish there was more for me to read!!

Editorial Reviews Review A heart-pounding love story. No matter how much Cecily held and caressed the doll and talked about how pretty it was, I remained stoically insistent that I did not want to touch it.
