This book has a VERY slow build-up, but the blend of mystery and suspense was almost perfection! The storyline dragged a bit (around 69%) with Calla Price's thoughts becoming slightly repetitive and the story still inching towards a makeshift conclusion, but the author's careful use of keywords made this book a great read! I figured out early on what the ending would amount to and that predictability sort of marred the storyline for me and skewed my ability to enjoy this book as much, but the ominous ending created a nice doorway to book two!

Having read the spoilers for book two and three, it's highly unlikely that I will continue reading this series, but this won't be my last time reading this author's work! En-joyed!

Hey, Jen! It's been sitting on my device for a while, too ;)) The author is new for me, so that's why I kept delaying this one, Lol!

Thanks, Memes! I didn't like the direction the rest of the series went in, even though I like this author's writing style. Had I known about those spoilers ahead of time, I probably wouldn't have read this book. Hopefully, you'll feel differently ;))

Thanks, Juanita! Maybe you might like this one more than I did? The reviews were great, but I found the storyline predictable.
