Beatrice De Novo thought she had left the supernatural world behind…for the most part. But when the past becomes the present, will she leave her quiet life in Los Angeles to follow a mystery she thought had abandoned her? Where has Giovanni Vecchio been, and why has he returned? Giovanni has his own questions, and he’s looking to her for answers.
The sequel to A Hidden Fire will reunite Beatrice and Giovanni to continue their search through the past while both wrestle with the future. When the world as you knew it has changed forever, is there any way you can turn back?
This Same Earth is the second book in the Elemental Mysteries series. It is a paranormal romance/mystery for adult readers.
When A Hidden Fire ended Beatrice was off in California going to college. Gio had 'broke in' to her apartment to leave airline tickets for her, while stealing away a picture of her to take with him. Now 5 years have passed and Beatrice has yet to hear a word from him. Not an email, a phone call, nothing! Every August during those 5 years she would take the airline tickets he would leave for her to go to his house in Chile for rest, and every year she claimed would be the last. Gio wanted her to mature and find herself during that time they were away from each other. And during that time Beatrice became involved with someone new, finally moving on. But now Gio is back and hoping to rekindle what they had once shared before. When something happens to the man she is dating and one of Carwyn’s children, both Gio and Beatrice set off in search of Lorenzo, wanting to put a stop to him once and for all.
I loved how Beatrice didn't drop everything for Gio when he first came back into her life. I mean I love Gio, I really do. But it was great seeing him pursuing her this time around. Beatrice is a stronger, more developed person now. She should make him work for it! But Gio, oh my Gio, how I love thee. I think I loved him more in the 2nd book than I did in the first one. He is sexy, smoldering (no pun intended) and absolutely swoonable! Oooh what I would give to be Beatrice for one day, I mean come on people we are talking waterfalls here! (Read up, you will understand)
This Same Earth had me smiling throughout most of the book with its fabulous storyline. I was so caught up in the romance and the nail biting suspense that I flew through the book in less than 24 hrs. Hunter is one fantastic author creating a world of vampires you will want to sink your teeth into (pun definitely intended). This series is one of my fav of favorites, and I know it will be yours too!
