    24.

    25. Another super book I enjoyed it and found the plot both different and spellbinding Ellie played three characters and made you fall in love with all three I couldn t wait to find out how the author could possibly bring it all together She did to my great satisfaction I will be glad to recommend this book to all my friends and family.

    27. This was a pretty average Christian Romance Nothing really special about it Something I liked was Ellie s inner monologues She was intelligent than many females heroine I have read about recently.Something I disliked was how easily Ellie s disguise fooled everyone It was about as unrealistic as Clark Kent taking of his glasses and being unrecognizable.Cute book, but I would not read it again.
