Goodreads Summary & Cover:
Mom touched my underdress—a gown made six hundred years before—and her eyes widened as she rubbed the raw silk between thumb and forefinger. She turned and touched Lia’s gown. “Where did you get these clothes?”Gabi knows she’s left her heart in the fourteenth century and she persuades Lia to help her to return, even though they know doing so will risk their very lives. When they arrive, weeks have passed and all of Siena longs to celebrate the heroines who turned the tide in the battle against Florence—while the Florentines will go to great lengths to see them dead.But Marcello patiently awaits, and Gabi must decide if she’s willing to leave her family behind for good in order to give her heart to him forever.
Seriously, SO GOOD!!!
Cascade picks up where Waterfall left off. The girls discover that they had only been gone for a few minutes from present-day time, but lived about 20 days in ancient Tuscany. Freaky, right?!?
In Cascade, the girls travel back in time and they bring their mother along with them this time.
When they return, the Forelli's and the people are so happy to have the "She-Wolves" back. However, the enemy, the Firenze are on a mission to capture Gabi and Lia -- especially Gabi.
I don't want to tell you if they do or not, but know that things are SUPER intense in this book. Marcello and Luca just make me swoon. And be amazed at the impressive Lord Greco. Sign me up for that one! :)
At the end of the story, the girls and their mom decide to head back and try to save their dad. They get to him to only to return to the tomb and try to quickly return to Marcello and the battle still going on.
I am very excited and ready to read the third book in the series, Torrent. I hope by the past being altered, the portal still works and they are able to figure out a way back. If you know me, I'm always rooting for the happiest of endings!
5 solid Mickeys on this one! The adventure, the capturing, the fighting, the family bonding, and the LOVE just made this one a fantastic read! No dull moments, whatsoever!
