    • Adele is a bit of a hot mess She puts on a good fa ade, but her desperate circumstances lead her to desperate measures, and even desperate choices I appreciated the setting and learning a little history of Niagara Falls, but there was something about the story that prevented me from fully enjoying it Perhaps it was Adele s duplicity and hypocrisy taking the moral high ground over the tightrope walkers exploiting the Falls, while she pursues Mr Conway for his wealth even though she can t stand h [...]

    • 4.5 stars Amanda Barratt s debut novel is a sweet romance as well as being a powerful story of trusting God and, what happens when we take matters into our own hands instead of waiting on Him.I can totally relate to Adele Linley her need to fix what s wrong and be in the one in charge In fact, I think most woman can appreciate that aspect of Adele s character, though perhaps hopefully not to the extremes that she takes it She is sincere and her heart is good it s just the execution of her plans [...]
