Sophia had always thought her life was dull and ordinary until her great-aunt Lily's death revealed a secret that could change everything. With Lily's ashes and a mysterious key in her possession, Sophia embarks on a journey to Italy, determined to fulfill her aunt's last wish.

As Sophia delves deeper into the mystery of the key, she discovers that there are secrets being kept that could change everything she thought she knew about her family. With each passing day, the stakes get higher and the danger grows greater.

Will Sophia be able to unlock the secrets and fulfill Lily's final wish, or will her journey lead to failure and disappointment? And will her newfound love for Luigi be enough to help her through the challenges that lie ahead? Only time will tell in this gripping tale of love, secrets, and the power of family ties.

A new beginning

Sophia is still in Italy trying to find out the secret of the key left to her by Lily. Along with her new friend Luigi she spreads lily's ashes over the country side as she was asked to do.

She is falling in love with Luigi, but she is still married, that is until she receives a letter from her husband asking for a divorce.

As she searches for answers she struggles with her love for Luigi and the problem with her husband who wants to move to America and take their young son with him. This she cannot let happen.

She finally meets the owner of the property next door who has fenced in and guarded the crypt where she thinks the key fits, but he does not allow access. Can she somehow gain access and find if the key fits, or does it fit somewhere else. ....The mystery continues....

I enjoy these installments of Sophia and Lily's story and look forward to each new segment.

Something is missing

Alrighty then. Sophia is filling her Auntie's wishes in scattering her ashes..And the same time Sophia seems lost in thought, fantasy thought of the night before..
Luigi! Is he really who he says he is? What did he truly want from Sophia? And Rodini, is he to be trusted?
And Then there's he cheating? Will he take Micheal?
Well now what? Answer is clear-- it's off to get Book 4!(I know,I know I said it was book 4 on last book, but it wasn't -it was book 2-just didn't read the volume correctly!😀)
So folks, as you can tell, I like this story! Even if it could've been consolidated down to perhaps 2-3 volumes, I still like it. And the writer! She fleshed out her characters so you can follow them comfortably and not get lost. --P/

The quest continues to find out what the key fits. Sophia spread's her Aunt's ashes and grows closer to Luigi. She gets a disturbing call and an interesting dinner invitation. The beautiful descriptions of Italy made me feel like I was there. It is a story that will keep you turning the pages and looking forward to the next installment. I would highly recommend it. I received an advance copy of this book and this is my honest review.

I don’t like how it ended ….. I want more !!!! Where’s the next book ??? I want to know what the key unlocks … I don’t like Sophia’s husband Charlie.. he’s a big time jerk. I hope things between Sophia and Luigi escalate into something more… which I’m sure it will. There’s so much going on and so much unfinished business that Sophia had to intend to. . What’s going to happen next? I’m waiting on the next quest… 🙃 will they find more hidden compartments in Sophia room?

The story continues on and leaves you for more. Will be reading the next book so I can find out what the key is for. If you enjoy intrigue you need to read this series. It leaves you, after each book, wanting more from Faith.
