I find Ms Morgenroth’s novel very easy to read. The words flow off the page like running water. It was not only very enjoyable but informative as well.
Barbara is an excellent author. I found the pace to be full of excitement and continuous. I had trouble putting it down once I started reading it.
This book is highly entertaining. Also, it is the first book that I have seen or read about a fictional photographer. It brought a lot of insight to the ins and outs of digital photography.
I give it:
Barbara was born in New York City and but now lives somewhere else. Starting her career by writing tweens and YA books, she wound up in television writing soap operas for some years. Barbara then wrote a couple cookbooks and a nonfiction book on knitting. She returned to fiction
and wrote romantic
When digital publishing became a possibility, Barbara leaped at the opportunity and has never looked back. In addition to the 15 traditionally published books she wrote, in digital format Barbara has something to appeal to almost every reader from Mature YAs like the Bad Apple series and the Flash series, to contemporary romances like Love in the Air published by Amazon/Montlake, and Unspeakably Desirable, Nothing Serious and Almost Breathing.
