As a reminder...my A-Z challenge is reviews based on the letter of the first name of the author. It seems I don't have a stockpile of reviews waiting for today's letter.
Summary from GoodReads: Embrace the beauty of the rose and discover the mystery that surrounds it.....

My Review: I have to say this book was unique to me. It goes back and forth between now and past dreams. Although, not confusing, you do need to pay attention to the changes in time.
I was drawn into this book after the first few pages. Romance and mystery carry this book and a mix of past and present in the form of cause and affect unfold. Not a long book, I did read it all at one time. I did find myself wishing it was longer. I wanted to get to know the characters more than you can in 138 pages.
Pick this one up for a quick weekend read that will keep your attention.
