*This book is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “Annabel Lee”.

Annaleigh Wells and William Calloway  are the definition of romance and true love. It is as if they are fated to be together.

But while planning their wedding, fate changes its mind and not even the nightmares, warnings or visions can save the couple from this unexpected turn of events.

It has been a real long time since I have read a book that drips love and romance. So after reading this it took me a minute to decide how I truly felt about it. Ultimately . . .  it was a good book.

Crouch wrote this book with care and detail. It was if the romance was too fragile to write about. It was really beautiful and simple. The story isn’t complicated by any means but it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t throw a curve in there.

When this book begins you’re in the middle of the romance. Annaleigh and William have known each other for years and love each other unconditionally with no complications. It does make the characters seem dull because there is no conflict between the two of them.

But this book is purely a romance novel and despite the unexpected event the romance theme continues. I did feel that the book was slow and not because the lack of conflict. I feel the Crouch spent too much time of the characters doing nothing that it stalled and it was harder to get back into the book.

Obviously, after reading this, Crouch is a talented author. The words are written a bit like poetry, which I assume is the point since it was inspired by a poem.  I wish there was more depth of characters but overall, 3.5 Pickles. This book is for die hard romance fans.
