The Deep End

The phone rang. She picked it up and a chilling voice said: “You’ve been a bad girl. I’m going to take down your panties and spank you…And them I’m going to kill you….”

Could this be the shortest review ever?
This was such a horrible, predictable book! It took forever to read - it was one of those books where I could put it down, read 4 other books, and come back knowing exactly what was going on. It was that slow.
