Trapped in the underground theater world of 1890s New Orleans, Hale Ferrer has only one goal: escape. But not without Teeny, the orphan-girl she rescued from the streets and promised to protect.
Freddie Lovel, Hale's wealthy Parisian suitor, seems to be the easy solution. If only his touch could arouse her interest like Beau's, the penniless stagehand who captures her heart.
Denying her fears, Hale is poised to choose love until an evil lurking in their cabaret-home launches a chain of events that could cost her everything.
Leigh is the author of The Truth about Faking, which I absolutely loved, so when she asked me to review this book I was super excited! This book did not let me down. It was absolutely amazing! Leigh is such a talented writer. Her words make you feel like you are right there in the story, her characters are so believable. If you ever get a chance to read one of her books, do it! You will not be disappointed.
I have never read a book with two love interest where I couldn't choose just one. Usually I immediately fall for one and the other I can't stand. I do have to say, I rooted for Beau a little more than Freddie only because he tried so hard to get Hale to choose him. He got a second job and found a house, he knew Hale's real story. As for Freddie, he has money and a house a high paying job. But Hale has to act around him, she can't be herself. Freddie loves Hale so much, I thought there had to be more too it.
This is a gripping story of a girl who has to grow up too fast. Only seventeen and taking care of twelve year old Teeny, an orphan-girl she rescued from the streets and promised to protect. Torn between duty and her true love. I understand why she does some of the things she has to do. My heart broke for her and the things she had to go through. You have to read this story!
Absolutely Amazing! Must Read!
