I think the reason why I gave this a 3 stars as opposed to a 2 stars (like I did for Mistress of the Game) was because I wasn't subconsciously comparing Sheldon's characters and plot with Bagshawe's; something I couldn't help doing with Mistress of the Game since Bagshawe was writing...more

Foi numa simples tarde quando eu fui atender o telefone da minha resid��ncia e enquanto eu estava ouvindo as minhas mensagens eu toquei nesse livro (que pertence a minha m��e, ela �� super f�� dele), no entanto eu nunca liguei para os livros dela....at�� esse dia.

Honestly, I don't normally pick up books of this genre or with this particularly kind of plot. But my best friend and fellow bookworm Pam recommended it to me after she read it, so I thought I'd give it a try.

This was actually a breath of fresh air for me, after reading a lot paranormals only, i decided to take a break and bought this. Aside from Paranormal, Mystery/Investigative is my next favorite.
This was a fast read for me. I couldn't put it down when i s...more

Many of the strong female leads in Sheldon's novels are s...more

I didn't like Grace as a 'heroine', I found her character unbelievable. I found the plot boring and foreseeable. I only finished it because I wanted to see if I was right. I rated it 2 stars...more
I was surprised by the outcome.
People can grow and learn on their own after many things happening to them.
Grace was ok. She figured out what she needed to do, and did just that.
