I always enjoy reading historical romances, and this one certainly did not disappoint. A major difference in “From This Moment” is the location. The backdrop is the building of the first subway system in Boston. Romulus White has wanted Stella West to work for his magazine for three years. Stella is an artist, but her mind is distracted looking for the person who killed her sister Gwendolyn. Evelyn, who is Romulus’ cousin and co-owner of the magazine reunites with her estranged husband Clyde. When Clyde shows up working on the subway, Evelyn is determined to stay away from him. When an accident occurs, Clyde and Evelyn come back together.
I loved all of the characters. Romulus and Stella were both stubborn, and the author did an excellent job in using this to her advantage. Gwendolyn’s spirit was well played, and her parents as secondary characters really brought out the personalities of both Stella and Gwendolyn. The suspense began building up from the beginning of the book until the end. I also didn’t realize that this was book 2 of a series. Obviously, this could be read as a stand-alone. I am definitely going to read more from this author and narrator.
Thanks to Tantor for giving me this audio in exchange for a honest review.
