Oh my, this third book in Shape’s Knickerbocker Series gives truth to amazing writing abilities of Ms. Shupe. Filled with fast action and numerous lively scenarios it was difficult to set down, which meant for me losing sleep because I couldn’t sleep without getting back up to see what happened next! Calvin and Lillian had amazing chemistry and passion between them and Ms. Shupe’s writing reflected all of that and more. Weaving in the Chinese connection and historical significance of how the Chinese were treated during that period added that wonderful bit of danger and suspense that increased the thrill level of the story. Bottom Line: An amazing story and sensual romance that was just what the doctor ordered to relieve boredom of being snowed-in!!!
