Another Soul Mates in Romeo story!

Love, Artifacts, and You is a second chance romance where things are complicated by secrets and a desire for revenge. Emma and Anthony were childhood sweethearts until Anthony was (literally!) torn away from her. She thinks he’s dead; he thinks she knows where he is all along and has betrayed him.

The manipulation of reality and things being presented to Emma one way and to Anthony another way is a recurring theme in this story–Ms Ready really tears at your heartstrings here, waiting until the reader *might* comfortably think that an HEA is in sight for our hero and heroine to completely…well…throw things all to heck.

At least readers know this is a romance–an HEA is guaranteed, thank goodness, no matter how crazy things get before we get there. Further, this is a Soul Mates in Romeo story–Miss Erma tells Emma (and the reader!) that she’ll be finding her soul mate in Romeo sooner rather than later. Trust me, you’re going to need that guarantee, because goodness things get pretty dark here.

The addition of the treasure hunting was a fun touch, and I loved the idea that Emma and Anthony had for the archeological site they end up discovering. If only Romeo, NY actually existed, that is one attraction I would 100% go to see!

Now don’t mind me, I’ll just be sitting here minding my own business, waiting for Ms Ready to write another SMIR book… 😉

Rating: 4 stars / A-
