An idealistic young woman marries a man she barely knows only to discover his first wife disappeared under mysterious circumstances. As a child, Bailey Browne dreamed of a knight in shining armor swooping in to rescue her and her mother. As she grew older, those dreams transformed, becoming ones of a mysterious stranger who swept her off her feet and whisked her away from her ordinary existence; then, suddenly, there he was. Despite the ten-year difference in their ages and her working class upbringing and his of privilege, Logan Abbott and Bailey fall deeply in love. Marriage quickly follows.
But when Logan brings her home to his horse farm in Louisiana, a magnificent estate on ninety wooded acres, her dreams of happily-ever-after begin to unravel. A tragic family history Bailey knew nothing about surfaces, along with whisperings about the disappearance of his first wife and rumors about women from the area who have gone missing, and when another woman disappears, all signs point to her husband's involvement.
My Review: Bailey is a lovely girl, but she needs some better judgment in men. Bailey has always wanted the fairy tales that every girl dreams of. So as she got older things changed for her. Which eventually lead her to meeting Logan.
You get two people from two different working classes. There is a big age difference, and there is also the fact that Bailey is too good for him. But you know love is a tricky thing and they happen to fall for each other anyway. Which lead to a wedding that happened a lot sooner than I would have liked.
So right now Logan seems like a good guy right? Well he has many secrets, and they are the kind that Bailey should have know about before diving into anything. But hey, like I said, love is tricky and does all kinds of things to people. Well what happens is Bailey needs to get herself away from Logan. He really isn't this good guy and she better get a move on before she becomes part of these
At the start of the book, I thought it was going to be just another one of those girl meets guy and insta love. Well it turned out to be much more than that after some chapters. It was to the point where I didn't want to put the book down. But I sorta had to, or nothing would ever get done. So go ahead and give this book a try. Its worth the read, and something a little different than usual.
