    Loved this book. It was pretty long and slow to start, but never stopped moving after the first secret was revealed. I recommend it!

  • Susan Williams

    It took a few chapters for me to get into the story, but once I did, I totally enjoyed this book. The narrator got on my nerves at first, but again, after a few chapters, I loved her! Very good story and made my drive to work so enjoyable. Another person at work had recommended it, so I had to check in with her every day.

    very well told story, and excellent narration! Characters are easy to empathize with.


    Good book. Started out a tad slow, but I liked the plot twists. Narrator was awesome with different voices, tones and cadence.

  • Grace Maungu

    The book is interesting but unnecessarily long. It has too many characters to my liking. The ending is flat!

  • Wanda Adkins

    This is the second title I've read by this author and I've enjoyed them both She has a real gift for insight into human nature and a genius for surprise twists in the plot

    Great story... The characters and story line flowed together seamlessly with many surprising and unexpected twists along the way. I can usually start to get a feel for how a book may end but this one left me anxiously unknowing and couldn't wait to figure out what happens. The narrator was decent. I wasn't sure about her at first but really grew on me and book progressed.

  • Nichole Lee

    Awesome book. It kept me engaged the entire time. The narration was great, the characters were very colorful and the book was very thoughtfully written.

  • Mary Later

    I loved this book. What a great story--lots of good twists. After it was over, I wanted to think of the issues raised and wished I could discuss with someone. Very thought provoking. The narration was excellent.

  • Karmen Palmer

    Beautifully done and deliciously twisted. I have yet to go wrong when choosing this author.
