Engaged to the charming and seductive Greg Anders, Sara Shaw is happily anticipating her wedding in Edilean, Virginia. The date has been set, the flowers ordered, even her heirloom dress is ready. But just three weeks before the wedding, Greg gets a telephone call during the night and leaves without explanation. Two days later, a man climbs up through a trapdoor in the floor of Sara’s apartment, claiming that he is the brother of her best friend and that he’s moving in. While Mike Newland is indeed telling the truth about his identity, his reason for being there reaches far deeper.

What did you love best about Wild Orchids?

The flow of the story did not confuse me as it went from different times in the life of the characters.

What other book might you compare Wild Orchids to and why?

Lavender Morning was the same style with regression to the past.

What does Alan Nebelthau and Kate Skinner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The Voice of the different person in perspective.

If you could rename Wild Orchids, what would you call it?

The Devil Made Me Do It.

Any additional comments?

Was a wonderful read with the possability of a second connected story.
