Tangled Schemes (Elemental Assassin #3.7)
While Bria is waiting for an informant who allegedly has information on the Spider, she flashbacks to the event that lead to her leaving Savannah and moving home.
There are also allusions to her own secrets, of which she has several.
This is probably my favorite extra so far . . . Either this one or the first one about when Fletcher first adopted Gin. FYI. ;)

She needs you, Bria, and you need her. It’s time to come home.
Finally we find out why Bria came back to Ashland. It was interesting seeing things from Bria’s POV, and the methods she was using to try and find her sister. Plus there were some action, and seeing Bria capture the bad guys was quite fun.
It took me some time to warm up to her, which I did enventually. But it was good reading about what happened to her since she was separated from her Gin.

This is from Bria's point-of-view and examines her conflict over sister versus Spider as she remembers life before Mab destroyed her family. Life with her sister Genevieve.

We learn the reasons why she's moved to Ashland and see the events in the book 'Venom' from her POV. We see that she has figured out the Spider is her older sister: Genevieve. But not that Gin is Genevieve, though she would like her to be.
She also is accosted in an ally and ends up solving the case of girls disappearing and being found beaten, strung out on drugs and/or killed.
Fave scene: the cherry pie.
Bria seems so much more bad-assed in this story and so much like the big sister that she can't see in front of her nose. I can't wait to see how she does react when she finds out that Gin is her sister.
It's nice to know however that Bria was adopted and therefore had a good upbringing.
A nice little story.
