This book is told in the first person.
This third book starts off with us getting a glimpse at some more of Rebecca Mason’s lost journals. This is a set of books that must be read in order. If you want to fall in love with Lisa’s characters, you must be patient and read her books as they were meant to be read – they should not be read as stand-alones. There is a preferred reading list, http://www.lisareneejones.com/reading-order/, to follow and then you can sit back, relax, grab your favorite drink, and enjoy these very sexy reads.
This story is a little different from the other two in this trilogy because they go international. As you read this book, you will realize that there is no way that this story could be contained in just one book. Chris and Sara’s story needed to be told over time. They were sharing their lives with us – like getting to know new friends.
Sara’s insecurities also follow her into this book – is it because of her age? Or is it her lack of life’s experiences? One thing I love is that Lisa makes Sara more human by showing her foibles. One of those foibles is in how she learns a foreign language – she isn’t shown as a woman who instantly knows how to speak another language. Not all of us find it easy to learn something other than English. Plus, if you pay close attention, you will get a mini French lesson.
Our author also has me wondering that if I didn’t have to take care of an elderly parent, would I take off with a handsome guy to a country where I didn’t know anyone or the language? Would you? Besides the language barrier, Sara also seems to be a little uncertain of what she wants to believe. The mystery also seems to escalate in this last book and then Lisa has you thinking how it connects to the title.
As you get closer to the end of this book, Lisa builds the suspense and it gets more intense the closer you get to the end. The ending will be a complete surprise for you – you won’t see it coming. But it also makes you wonder if this is where her next book is going to pick up.
I didn’t check into a playlist for this book because I’m not too sure of the international stars coming out of France. You may want to decide to listen to something classical or maybe even one of your favorites. I think something quiet that stays in the background would be good. I also went to Lisa’s web site to see if I could find out anything coming up that revolves around this series but alas there’s nothing posted on her web site, http://www.lisareneejones.com. If you love a good erotic series, you can’t go wrong in reading what Lisa has to offer.
