The more I think about this book, the way it is written and the way words fall in place with action, the more I realize I enjoyed it and the more respect for it that I have. There is some strong language in here, so if you object to reading from a character with a foul mouth, you won't want to pick up this book.

Never know what to expect with Marianne Wiggins novels. Very well written. Interesting, fascinating personalities, plot turns and twists. Reads as if someone is telling you the story, not as if you are reading it. Will have to find another of hers soon.

5 star read. Wiggins' writing is smart and intimate. My aim is to read all her work.
