After suffering a great loss, novelist Sage DeCarlo moves away with hopes of putting the painful past behind her. However, what she doesn’t realize is that her past is still following her- literally.This is a face paced, well written, super suspenseful, story within a story. My favorite character was Mr. Fitzgerald. The tender friendship that developed between him and Sage was deeply touching.

And then there was all of the serious ‘swooning’ material! – She drank in Ayden’s smile, meeting his eager gaze, anticipating what would follow…
And – “What is death like, Ayden? Not nearly as painful as living,” fluttered from her lips.

My heart melted over and over. I very highly recommend this novel to all genres! Absolutely brilliant! Looking forward to reading the sequel!

About The Author: M.J.Umland


As most writers, I began reading and writing at a very young age. At the age of four, I was more interested in what my older brother and father were reading, and found myself picking it up when they weren’t looking! Old Mother West-wind stories were a favorite alongside numerous works of noted poets and authors(which I’m not sure I can mention.)By the age of eleven, I had written several poems and essays, molded under my father’s guidance. Being an English major, it wasn’t an easy task. As I got older, my interests shifted to fiction mostly and suspense with a thread of romance, intrigue, and mystery. Photography is my second love. I enjoy nature walks, taking my camera along capturing the beauty of nature. Currently, I live in Arkansas, the natural state with my Fiancé’, and two large cats!
