If you get lost in a book, be sure you can find your way back...
Madeleine d'Leon doesn't know where Edward came from. He is simply a character in her next book. But as she writes, he becomes all she can think about. His charm, his dark hair, his pen scratching out his latest literary novel...
Edward McGinnity can't get Madeleine out of his mind – softly smiling, infectiously enthusiastic, and perfectly damaged. She will be the ideal heroine for his next book.
But who is the author and who is the creation? And as the lines start to blur, who is affected when a killer finally takes flesh?


This was an extremely clever book that begs to question which came first the author or the character and which is which? This story starts out sweet and quickly sucks you into a whirlwind of emotions. Does fiction become reality? Who is the villain? What happens to the characters if you never finish the book? This brilliant mystery is fresh and different than anything I've read.  I loved the characters and toward the end it was starting to become unclear who the real author was, is it madeleine or is it Edward?

This book could totally have a sequel to it or it could be left just where it is.  I loved it and the character development was mind blowing.  You quickly become engrossed in both of their lives and I found myself routing for both Edward and Madeleine.
