I have heard rumors of a second book to come, but I think this could be considered a stand alone

Link goes to and teaser from

"What if love refused to die?

Haven Moore can’t control her visions of a past with a boy called Ethan, and a life in New York that ended in fiery tragedy. In our present, she designs beautiful dresses for her classmates with her best friend Beau. Dressmaking keeps her sane, since she lives with her widowed and heartbroken mother in her tyrannical grandmother’s house in Snope City, a tiny town in Tennessee. Then an impossible group of coincidences conspire to force her to flee to New York, to discover who she is, and who she was.

In New York, Haven meets Iain Morrow and is swept into an epic love affair that feels both deeply fated and terribly dangerous. Iain is suspected of murdering a rock star and Haven wonders, could he have murdered her in a past life? She visits the Ouroboros Society and discovers a murky world of reincarnation that stretches across millennia. Haven must discover the secrets hidden in her past lives, and loves¸ before all is lost and the cycle begins again."

*My review*

 I sped through it, and I hungered to find out what happens and hoping that I got the ending I was hoping for.

This is more of a mystery than I usually read.. The plot unfolds at a slow pace at the beginning, but then it picks up. Like Haven, I was constantly wondering who can really be trusted, and on the edge of my seat not knowing what is really going on. But, Haven seemed almost to naive- she was back and forth it seemed like every single chapter.

This was not predictable-- I honestly did not know who to trust, I was not ahead of Haven, and I was in suspense. I also really like the character of Beau, her best friend. He is amazing- and different from any best friend/brotherly like characters that come to mind.

I would love to hear what you think and if you have reviewed, feel free to leave a link and I will check it out.


  1. I've heard good things and not so good things about this book, and I appreciate your honest review. I'm not sure the religion aspect would sit too well with me either. Great review :)

  2. Not a book I have read but I've heard a lot of good things (and some bad) about it. Thanks for your thoughts.

  4. I reviewed this one a few weeks ago and had seriously mixed feelings about it too - in the end I decided it wasn't for me - there were too many plot holes and out of nowhere religious craziness. I loved the concept though and was really disappointed it didn't capture me more.

  5. I've heard such mixed things about this book, it's making me really want to read it just to see what I think. Thanks for the honesty:)

  6. I think yours is one of the first mixed reviews I've seen so far. I'm definitely going to keep in mind what you've said when I read this as I've been itching to read this for quite some time!

  7. I felt the same way about Haven...but i enjoy this book.I can't wait to see what happens next.
