Flower child Katie Scott doesn't quite fit in well in 1968 San Francisco, so she ventures out to London, England to find herself...and love.
In London she meets Jay Carey, a dark, seductive and sweet musician and she falls in love. Within her secret of yearning to shed her flower child exterior to expose her June Cleaver interior, she has a secret that may impact her future with Jay.
With the dawning of peace, personal growth and righteous music, Crimson and Clover is packed full of romance, emotional turmoil, long lasting love and friendships and steamy nights.
This book is a little over 200 pages long, but because of its depth, it felt as if it were hundreds of pages longer. I wanted to read through it quickly to find out what happened, but also make it last as long as I could.
Juli Page Morgan has a way with making her readers feel in the moment, almost as if the character's emotions and obstacles are yours as well. That every heartbreak, every moment of feeling the world spinning around you as you held your loved one close was yours.
Although Athena's Daughter and Crimson and Clover have similar love interests (Jay in Crimson and Clover and Derek in Athena's Daughter are both musicians), they are both beautifully unique in their own way. And Katie (our main character) made growing up and finding yourself, in the 70s, real for me.
I hope Juli Page Morgan continues to write books that captivate you from the very first chapter.
