Aeris Thorne, which is the coolest name ever, is a typical 20-something, she loves to hang out with her friends, and work in her dads shop, while taking some time off from her usual life. Aeris moved back home with her dad, in the town of Deep Cove. Aeris thinks that her time in Deep Cove is going to be a relaxing vacation, until she runs into the mystery millionaire doctor Hunter Cayman. He lives in a castle on a cliff on the outskirts of Deep Cove, where he does his research-which some people would call secretive, or mysterious. There is some type of pull between Aeris and Hunter, they can’t seem to keep away from each other. Once they start seeing each other more and more, Aeris starts to pull the walls down around the mystery of what happens in Dr. Cayman’s castle. She may even start to reveal some things about herself, and her past that she never knew before.
The Butterfly Code by Sue Wyshynski was full of excitement, entertainment and mysterious ways. I really enjoyed it for what it was. A little romantic, and a little bit suspenseful. What I really liked about it, was that it reminded me of an old tale like Dr. Frankenstein or Beauty and the Beast. The reason I say that is the mystery surrounding Dr. Cayman can only be visualized as a dark and stormy night, in a mansion alone, with lightning flashing in the sky-he sits with a lab coat and secrets. That’s just how I pictured it anyway, and it made his character even more intriguing.
One thing that I didn’t enjoy about this book was that I felt it said things about the characters that the author expected you to already know. As I understand, this is the first book in this series, so a little bit more back story would have created an even better reading experience for me. Other than that, I thought this book was incredible imaginative and fun to read. I give this 4 out of 5 stars.
