You will definitely want to have plenty of allotted reading time before starting this one. It was hard to put down. I was so engrossed in the story that I put off many of my important things to do. C.T. Collier does a great job of creating a Mystery that keeps the reader invested and guessing.

Lyssa is a wonderful lead, she is fun to read about and easy to get behind as a lead character.

Lots of twists and turns and a wonderfully woven mystery.

I love C.T. Collier's novels. They are always so fun and so fresh. I have read so many of her novels and am still blown away with her ability to bring us characters who we care about time and again.

I loved that the author was able to balance a humorous moments and mystery all in this novel. Everything offsets each other perfectly.

I personally enjoyed the relationships forged with secondary characters as well.
