I read a great review of this book so ordered it from the library. Now I see the poor author died right before it was published, having intended it to be the first in a series!
awesome book. once again serenalla writes an amazing book. main character, Charlotte, would of made a great series of books but unfortuently serenalla past away.
This was a nice set up for a new series. I was interested in the main character and her OCD. So sad that Seranella will write no more.
Aggghhh! Really enjoyable. I would happily have read more of this series if the author were still alive to be writing them. :(
