Dying to Live is a masterpiece in writing!!! OMG...I'm speechless. This author weaves a beautiful tale about one lost soul finding his long lost love. If you want to read a true romantic story you have to read this one by Author Isobelle Cate. It is written art, from the story to the characters to the ending. Which stole my breath away. I was so emotional after reading it that I had to wait till the next day to write the review. You have to read this novella you will not be disappointed. Bravo

*I was gifted this book for an honest review*

Dying to Live is a sweet story that captures you immediately. Melissa has such intriguing dreams, and that is really what drew me into the story, along with who she meets in real life. I know that it was a short story but it still had such great content and I really loved how well Isobelle writes conversation between her flows nicely and is natural. This book also has such a great little twist at the end...I rate this book 4.5 stars! I

Melissa Cullen was Christina Parrish in another life. In Manila while studying headstones she comes across the stone of James Parrish. He appears to her and asks her to come back to him. This book is short only 41 pages but it isn't the type of book I usually read. It did however hold my interest.

A love story with a difference..

What a wonderful story.
A student Melissa and her friend Felicity, are in Manila
studying Architecture.
While taking photos in a Military cemetery Melissa meets
a man named James. Let just say it all starts from there.
I will say , if you want something different with HEA this is for you.

Out of the ordinary

I love Isobelle Cate's books. And this one is no exception. This just proves that true love survives centuries and that we all get second chance. It is up to us to take it.
Plenty of drama and emotions this story is so out of this world. With a nice twist in the end.

This was an amazing read, and so unexpected,loved it! I admit I love Isobelles writing, but this blew me away, intense, love story with a definite difference. Even the angels got in on the act in this time less true love story. Highly recommended.
