The characters are solid, the storyline intriguing and never dull. There is a ton of information to be scoured here, as Tomas searches in vain for the answers to all the mystery surrounding Cathal. There has to be a sequel! This book is an awesome read.

I particularly like the character development as Tomas searches for Cathal. The descriptions of places and the movement of the plot starts slowly at the beginning but as the book progresses it begins to have a specific pace and keeps you motivated and interested. I can't wait to finsh Anne's second book called "Shadowboxing" which is what I"m doing now.

One person found this helpful. I couldn't put it down. I would like to see the sequel. I am really happy with the way she writes, kept me interested for 3 days straight. See all 4 reviews. There's a problem loading this menu right now. It was infuriating and it kept distracting me from the story. Despite that, I liked the story.
It was sweet and intriguing, and I liked Cathal's mysterious and quirky personality and how it contrasted whit Tom's. I drug reading this one out. I wanted to keep the characters fresh in my mind, and I was dreading the story ending. When I did get to the end, I was counting down the days to the sequel. The ending left me craving the more, not just for myself, but for the characters as well.
I absolutely love this series. Feb 08, Riina Y.
Great writing style, but sadly I couldn't connect with the MC's much I quickly lost interest in what was going on that I ended up skipping bits here and there: I hope everyone else enjoys it more! Sep 05, Kate rated it it was ok. The story was to drawn out, and slow moving. Yet they fell in love very quickly. I was disappointed, I really wanted to like this book.

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. Drawn to the tree, Tomas believes it will be a wonderful place to sit, write and finally find some peace.
Cat’s Quill – Queeromance Ink
It is here that Tomas meets Cathal for the first time instantly noticing a connection between the two. Cathal is elusive in details of his present life, never giving a direct answer and the answers he does give are spoken in riddles. Including once such afternoon Cathal seemed to disappear into nothing but air. The common thread they both share is a love of reading.
When Cathal returns the book, he and Tomas have a heated discussion regarding the sequel and its author. During this discussion and the several that follow, Thomas begins to believe Cathal knows more regarding the story. Cathal talks about relatives and friends which amazingly share the same names as the characters in the book. Another strange coincidence is one of the original owners of the inn shares the name of one of the main characters in the book, not to mention Cathal speaks of her as if he had known her in person.
But how can this be, when she owned the inn over 90 years ago. Obsessed with solving the mystery of the original author, Tomas begins to investigate the small village and her inhabitants meeting several colorful characters along the way. As the story continues, Tomas searches for the pieces to make sense of the mysterious puzzle, desperately clinging to the line between reality and fantasy. Through his new found friends and the beginnings of a chance at real love he finds his grumpy exterior beginning to melt.
Can he allow himself to embrace what he has found before it is taken away forever?
