My Review

5/5 Stars

Bijou Li has a beautiful way of introducing the reader to new cultures and places. This book is no different. When Yune finds out that her husband is having an affair and the woman might be pregnant, she decides to go look for her and is introduced to a whole new culture. She both finds and loses herself there, finding it so beautiful she’s uncertain if she wants to leave.

The prose is filled with beautiful descriptions that make it easy to visualize just about everything in the story. Bijou Li’s romances are always so unique because they usually involve the MC finding herself in the process rather than just falling mindlessly head over heels like I’ve seen in some romances.

If you like unique romances, this is the book to read.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
