“Wonderfully written and captivating. The author takes you through some twists and turns you don’t expect, coupled with a satisfying ending you never see coming. It’s a book you’ll want to read over again.”
“This intelligent book was really a fun read! At first I thought it was a romance novel, but the plot soon turned into a very clever mystery. I enjoyed the twists and turns.”
Author note: I love jigsaw puzzles and love it when books are like that, with a myriad of small details that tie into a rich whole. So, the phrase and title, The Apple of My Eye, was the first spark that came to mind. I knew this would be a recurring metaphor throughout the book and tie the end to the beginning.
