Review of "From This Moment" by Elizabeth Camden

I have truly enjoyed all of this author's books - but this one by far is my favorite. Stella West (nee Westergaard) and Romulus White are professionals with somewhat interconnecting lives - Stella is an acclaimed artist, and Romulus has been pursuing her for years to provide illustrations for the science magazine that is his pride and joy. He is thrilled to discover that Stella is now in Boston, but her reason for crossing the pond is tragic - Stella's sister died under somewhat mysterious circumstances, and she is determined to discover what really happened.

Although she was initially reticent to work for Romulus, when she is opposed at every turn in her investigation, she decides that his relationships and connections with people in positions of power within the city may provide her with the answers she needs. However, the truth goes much deeper than either of them could have imagined, and evidence suggests that the continued investigation will have far reaching consequences that neither of them would have imagined.

Note: If you have not already read the companion short, "Summer of Dreams: A From This Moment Novella" I suggest you read that first. It will greatly enrich this novel and give deeper context to not only Romulus' motivation but also the subplot of the relationship with his cousin and her estranged husband.

It is very easy to recommend this book! I was given a copy of this book by Bethany House publishers in exchange for my honest review.
