OrangeReviewStarFor years, Olivia Eversea has resisted marriage, waiting for her love, Lyon Redmond, to return. Now, she has relented, and the news of her upcoming wedding has reached him—and it's time for Lyon, something of a legend in his own time, to come home and take action. Clever plotting, exceptionally well-developed characters, and a scenario that reveals a few secrets and ties up a number of loose ends make this a story to sigh over and savor. A dash of mystery and a well-done ballad add to the fun.
VERDICT Stunningly romantic and ultimately satisfying, this long-awaited and beautifully rendered story wonderfully wraps up Long's "Pennyroyal Green" saga; it won't disappoint. Long (It Started with a Scandal) lives in the San Francisco area. [See "Editors' Fall Picks," LJ 9/1/15.]
