    I so enjoyed this story very much!. It was never boring & always moving forward. Suspenseful, but not terrifying. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Once again Ms. Bradshaw kept me glued to the pages of another one of her well written books. I jump at the opportunity to read anything she pens. Her characters are believable and likable. I always want to read the next book to see what comes their way.

    Excellent: good story, fast paced, tension, characters have depth and I want to read more. Only criticism is that this author doesn’t provide linking info; ie what you need to know to understand the continuity between the books in the series if each previous book has not been read.

    Good ending.
  • Great Read!

    By Skyman401
    Once started reading, I didn’t know what I was getting into, that is until I got past chapter one. It seemed the more I read, the more fascinated I was with the setting, the case, and especially the characters! Even Sloane’s ability to crack the case even wider with every clue she discovered, had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Great read, totally recommended it to anyone who loves a good mystery! Five stars!
