* REVIEW * - Unbreakable (Cypress Grove Series) by Amie Nichols

Reviewer : Cheryl
Rating : 4 Stars

The main character of this story is Lilly Sumnor.  The adopted millionaire heiress to the Sumnor fortune after her adopted parents die from a car crash.  

This story is filled with mystery and interesting twists and turns.  As soon as the beginning starts there is no turning back.  You figure out what it is that is happening, but the masks and facade is impenetrable unless you are close to the issue.  Lilly has lived her entire young life being the target of her adopted mother's scorn, hatred, and brute force.  For eighteen years she has been subjected to different forms of abuse a person would ever be exposed to. 

Luke is surrounded by beauty in the form of flowers and plants as the son of a landscaper.  When he first sees Lilly he just knows she is the most beautiful thing he has ever known and that she will be his.  There is no question in his mind that she is the one for him.  As he witnesses Lilly in pain he swears he wants to protect her, but can't do that without jeopardizing his father's job. 

Lilly has had a crush on Luke for years and when he leaves for a few years and leaves her crushed she tries to forget him.  Unknown to Lilly is the fact that Luke had to leave so he doesn't intervene on her behalf to stop the people hurting her so she will never be in pain.  When he finally returns after her parents die, they feel their same emotions overcoming each other and act on it. 

This story is as I said mysterious.  The relationship between Lilly and Luke is only one aspect of the mystery of the story.  There is mystery surrounding who she really is.  On top of that is the fact that Lilly is being stalked by an unknown person.  She doesn't know who this stalker is and experts are convinced its probably a person she has shown kindness to or even someone in passing.  When he gets close enough to kidnap Lilly and hurt Luke there is a questionable future or lack thereof for them.  Will Lilly ever be found?  Is Luke okay?  Will they be reunited or is it the end?
