Cover: There wasn't one since I read it on my Sony. That part is hard to get used to. It was also hard to remember the title of the book since it wasn't on every page. (I also think it could be harder to remember what books I've reviewed, I usually remind myself of that using the physical object as a mnemonic.)
First line: "She kept staring straight ahead as the knuckle of land, bumpy and green with distance, began revealing its secrets."
Themes: Partner abuse, rebirth, catering, magic, law enforcement.
Best part: I really enjoyed the character of Mia.
Worst part: The ending seemed a little forced to me. I wasn't convinced I had seen all the change in Nell I had wanted to see.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Never Been Gone" by Carly Simon
Recommended for: Fans of the romance genre, especially anyone tired of Sexy Pentacle Tattoo books.
