This was one of those rare books that kept me flipping pages as I raced to find out what would happen next. The plot was full of mystery and suspense and while I thought I could predict the next twist or turn it was better than I predicted. I found the romance and family dynamics to be realistic and believable. The descriptions were rich in detail. Recommended.

A fabulous read! The author definitely takes the reader through a wave of emotions. This book was very fast paced and the author's writing style gave me a great visual of the characters. Recommended for mystery readers who want more than just same old same old. I look forward to reading other books by this author.
