Many thanks to Edelweiss+, the author, and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
This book is a going to be in my summer reading guide.
I read this book in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down, I wanted to know what happened to the girls, I wanted to see how they took down the police department. This book was a page turner.
What I love about this book it featured a strong female protagonist. The characters were well developed.
Earlier this year, I read The Banker’s Wife by Cristina Alger and was blow away by its story. Strong female protagonist. Check. Intense suspense. Check. Beautiful prose. Check. She has done it again, folks! What a complicated, beautiful set mystery/thriller!
