About the book:
What Can a London Opera Star and an Escaped Dartmoor Prisoner Have in Common?
Opera star Maggie Lee escapes her opulent lifestyle when threatened by a powerful politician who aims to ruin her life. She runs off to the wilds of the moors to live in anonymity. All that changes the day she discovers a half-dead man near her house. Escaped convict Oliver Ward is on the run to prove his innocence, until he gets hurt and is taken in by Maggie. He discovers some jewels in her possession—the very same jewels that got him convicted. Together they hatch a plan to return the jewels, clearing Oliver’s name and hopefully maintaining Maggie’s anonymity.
I couldn’t put this book down! I read the whole thing in one day, it was that good! Michelle Griep does such an excellent job creating these characters that are so full of life. She also creates the best villains for her books. I was so into this story that I didn’t want it to end! This book is definitely one of my favorites for the year so far!
