This was the first book I have read by this author & it was a steady paced action book. However, the ending felt like it was rushed. I enjoyed the storyline still & will be reading more by this author.

I give no stars to the first half of this book. I almost put it down to never be read because it was boring and going nowhere fast. However, the rest of the book was excellent so thankfully, because I am stubborn, I finished the book.

It was good, not great. I was surprised at the end by the evil Doctor's secret, but not amazed. I think the wrap-up was surprisingly quick and therefore not very suspenseful. Also, I felt Emma was kind of weak. But I liked her friends.

It's very telling that I enjoyed this book, but by the time I got around to writing this blurb less than 2 weeks later, I couldn't even remember the plot. This isn't one of Judith Kelman's finest.

Interesting story, but I didn't like the ending. Too simplistic.

This was a quick read for me. I liked the pace of the story and the characters. I had figured out some of the mystery part way through but it was still intriguing.

An unusual story, not sure if I liked it. Seemed a long way around to a very abrupt ending.
