Rated 4 out of 5 by from feel like you're in Morocco I really like Linda Holeman's books because they make you feel like you are experiencing the smells, sights and sounds of the places where her stories are set. The descriptions of the culture and people of the desert in Morocco and the markets of Marrakesh are so vivid that it makes you want to go there. The story is also very romantic, but it does get a bit annoying in a few places, as you wish the main character would be a little more realistic about the man she's in love with. If you like happy endings, you will be very satisfied with this story.
