Edith just can’t resist her overwhelmingly powerful attraction to Alex . . .
Edith is terribly hurt when Alex disappears after their first romantic date. But she is unable to put her ultimate experience of sex and love with him out of her mind. Then, a month later, he is at her door, sexy and handsome. She cannot resist temptation and leads him directly to her bed, no questions asked.
A love as strong and crazy as this must be Edith’s destiny
In love and enchanted, Edith is convinced that their relationship is one of destiny, since it so much mirrors that between her grandparents, who had been murdered in the Holocaust two generations earlier. Love never dies. After the two were brutally murdered the love that nestled in their hearts went up to heaven, where it belonged. It was simply waiting to find new life in Edith and Alex.
But will Alex stick around to see it through?
But Alex, a scientist, is unwilling to accept inexplicable coincidences that threaten his freedom. He views this love as a passing adventure, to last only until he falls in love with the next woman. Will Alex seek to defy Edith’s destiny?

Mystery & Survival is the second book in the From Siberia with Love series. However, the book can be read as a stand-alone quite easily. Edith is hurt when Alex disappears after their first romantic date, but when he appears at her door, his sexy and handsome self, about a month later, she can’t resist temptation. The two of them end up under the sheets again and although part of Edith knows she can’t let him do this to her – show up for some wild, passionate sex, and then disappear on her – she doesn’t know how to stop herself from wanting them.

Edith is looking to build a future with Alex. But Alex is a scientist, a down-to-earth man who sees his adventure with Edith as just that: an adventure. Theirs isn’t an epic love that transcends time. Edith is just the woman he’s falling for now, until he falls for the next woman. Or is she more than that?

I quite liked this book although it was different from what I expected. Edith and Alex have very different viewpoints when it comes to their relationship, but they do connect in sveeral other ways. Edith is a little naive, but she has her heart in the right place.
