Publisher's Summary

Learn how it all began ...before the magic of tatùs.

When Argyle invites his best friend, Simon Kerrigan, home for the Christmas holidays, he wants to save Simon from staying at Guilder Boarding School on his own.

Simon comes along and doesn't expect to find much more excitement in the tiny Scottish town where Argyle's family lives. Until he meets Beth, Argyle's older sister. She's beautiful, brash and clearly interested in him.

When her father warns him to stay away from her, Simon tries, but sometimes destiny has a hope of its own.

Great Narration and a prequel that has me hooked

I was provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator.

I decided to read the prequel before reading the first book in the series and I have to admit my interest is definitely piqued and can't wait to read the first book in the series. I really liked Simon and Beth, their romance, and the fact that Beth's father wanted to keep them apart. It leaves all kinds of question I'm dying to have answered like the significance behind Guilder Boarding School, the tattoo Simon is supposed to get, and the ominous words Beth's fathrr spewed at Simon. It has me wanting to read more.

I also really loved the narrator. Sarah Ann Masse did a great job with the accents, especially eith Beth. I wanted to listen to Beth talk through the entire book. I really loved her voice and how soft and great Simon's voice was. She is amazing after listening to her narrate this book.

This book was definitely worth the listen.
