Mount Hope Sarah Price



Description:
When her father can no longer provide for his large family, Fanny Price is sent away from her small Amish community in Colorado to live with her aunt’s family in Mount Hope, Ohio. Fanny immediately feels out of place at the Bontrager farm but finds a friend in her aunt’s stepson, Elijah Bontrager.
As time passes, Fanny begins to long for their friendship to blossom into something more, but her hopes are dashed when Elijah starts to court someone else. With her uncle pressuring her to marry a man who can take her off his hands, Fanny must learn to rely on God for her future.

My thoughts on the book:


Fanny is only 10 years old when her and her brother William her their parents talking and whispering, they wonder if they are going to sell the farm and go back to Lancaster County. What she didn't expect was being send off to her moms family in Ohio. When she arrives she tries to find her place. Now 8 years later she still is trying to find her place and also she is trying to find the love of her life, or has she already found him?
I really really enjoyed this book, Sarah has really knocked it out of the park with this book oh who am I kidding she always does. I have to admit I have never read anything Jane Austen and I know this book is mirrored after one story, however I feel this book was very much a twisted cinderella story. I loved the sassiness, but the tender heart of Fanny. I hated, ok maybe thats a strong word but I totally did not like Timothy, Naomi, or Mariam my dislike for them is because Sarah did an amazing job at connecting the reader with the characters. Sarah has a way in her books of making the reader connect in a way that you feel like you are catching up with a friend and not just reading a story and she has done that again in this book. There is nothing I did not like about this book. I loved that its a good christian/clean read. If you have never read any of her book seriously grab this one and have fun.

The Matchmakers of Minnow Bay Kelly Harms


Description:


A young painter, Lily has reached a crossroads in her life. Her career hasn't taken off, her best friend may no longer be the trusted friend she thought, her boyfriend is a disappointment, and now she can't keep up with the rising cost of living in the city. With no one to turn to, Lily is forced to move from her beloved apartment, but while packing she comes across a piece of mail that had slipped to the back of her junk drawer: a letter detailing further action needed to finalize the annulment of a quickie Vegas wedding. Ten years ago!

Lily decides it's time to turn over a new leaf and the first item on her list of things to fix is getting the annulment... but you can't just send a reply ten years later, "Hey by the way we are still married." This is something that must be addressed in person. Lily takes to the road to track down her husband - the charming, fun, and sexy man she connected with all those years ago - Ben Hutchinson.

Ben Hutchinson left a wealthy dot-com lifestyle behind to return home to his family and the small town he loves, Minnow Bay. He's been living off the grid and the last thing he expects is a wife he didn't know he had to show up on his doorstep.

By chance, Lily arrives at the magical Minnow Bay Inn, and there she will discover not just a place to lay her head, but new friends, a thriving art community, and maybe even the love of her life.

My thoughts on the book:

Lily for the last 10 years has worked really hard to make in the Art world. She has been there for her brother, her best friend and her so called boyfriend. But looking back now that she is about to be homeless she turns to everyone who she's always helped and no one seems to be in a hurry to help her and she wonders what next in store and if there friendships and relationships she has built are really once she wants to keep. When packing she discovers that she is still married and now she needs to track down and explain everything to Ben and hope he understands. Will he be able to understand or just tracking him down cause more problems then good?

I found this book at the beginning very whinny and annoying. However once I got further into the book the storyline shined and it just drew me in and left me wondering what was going to happen next. There were some slow drag spots but over all the storyline itself is amazing and carries it self. I wish that the story would have been from both Ben and Lily's point of view but the author does a good job at explain it from both sides. I really loved Simone, Jenny and Colleen they seem to really make the story and add some fun to it. Colleen and her struggles add to the heart of the story as well. The friendships formed in this book seem very genuine and the town of Minnow Bay makes you want to jump in the car and go visit these fun sweet people.

Devoted Defender, Rachel Dylan (Danger in the Deep South #2)


Description:
Danger in the Deep South #2
Personal Chef Annie Thomas thought she’d finally found a safe haven from her past. But when her boss is shot in cold blood leaving her as the only witness, she’s forced to go on the run—again. And this time there is an even bigger target on her back.
Navy SEAL turned small town police chief Caleb Winters doesn’t like that danger has come to Maxwell, Georgia. But he vows to protect the innocent woman seeking refuge from an organized crime network that he knows will stop at nothing to tie up loose ends.
When hiding is no longer an option and threats surround them, will Caleb be the devoted defender Annie needs with her life on the line?



My thoughts on the book:

Annie just saw her boss killed and now she is on the run something she learned in the past is to trust no cops, and now she wondering who she can trust and if they will find her who ever they are. 
Caleb enjoys being a cop in a small town but he is all to aware that just because his town is small there is not bad things happening but he is going to do his darnedest to keep it safe. But when Annie comes speeding into his life he know he needs to protect her weather she likes it or not.

OH MY Goodness I loved this book hands down. Rachel doesn't disappoint at all. She has once again knocked it out of the park with this book. I Love reading her books it really is easy to get completely lost in her books, including this one. I think the only negative thing I would have to say is I wish her books were much longer. If you have never read anything by her check this series out especially if you like Christian authors like Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey or even Terri Blackstock all these women are just amazing and I know that Rachel will not disappoint you either. Her books are on the small scale but you could totally know them out in one setting just needing to know whats going to happen next.

Seasons in Paradise Barbara Cameron





Description:


Sam Stoltzfus left the Amish community and followed his older brother, David, into the Englisch world, walking away from a chance for love. Sam had clashed with his father, but is there more to his leaving the community than what he says? 

Mary Elizabeth, the woman he was starting to love before he left, is determined to find out the reason and bring him back into the fold in time for Christmas.

My thoughts on the book:

Sam is wondering if leaving the amish community was such a great idea is he really following what God wills or is he follow his own heart after all he went through at home. He needs to figure it out and quit, he already told Mary Elizabeth he was gone for good but rumor has it she has found herself another man, thats a good thing right? Will he be able to figure it all out and have the girl of his dreams or will someone come along who's better for her? Mary Elizabeth is so frustrated with Sam he's been the love of her life for so long and when he left he took her heart with him. He is to stubborn and pig headed to see it, but will she be able to work with him when things change around her sisters house. Will she be able to get him to see she is worth coming home to or is it time to move on with the new fellow in the area? 
I really really enjoyed this book almost as much as the first one. I love reading about the Amish and there simple life style thats not always that simple. I love how once again the author touched on some tough subjects. I don't think there was anything I did not like about the book. I had a really hard time putting this book down, I so wanted to know what these fun characters where up to. 
I truly love that this is the perfect read for anyone and I can't wait to pick this one up for my nieces.

Queen of My Heart (Life Won't Wait, #1) Nikki Lynn Barrett


Description:
When the next King of country music offers to take you under his wing, what's a girl to do?
Pinch herself, of course. Repeatedly. Then take the offer!
Quinn Winters is tired of being the actress known for most killed off characters. After discovering her love of music when her last role portrayed a country singer on a daytime soap opera, she's making a much needed change in life. Quinn is unprepared for the demands and expectations needed to succeed in Music City. One pleading call from her sister puts her in an all too familiar, but unwanted position.

Five years ago, Tucker McGinnis auditioned for a reality singing show, never expecting to win. His sudden fame and popularity comes as a major surprise. After a multi platinum debut, his second album is suffering the dreaded sophomore jinx. His musical muse becomes elusive when guilt plagues him over an accident which affects his family. He is blown away by Quinn when he overhears her audition at his record label, singing his most personal song.

An attraction builds, and a connection through music is formed. But when life gets in the way, Tucker makes another offer - A temporary marriage which will benefit both of them, until things become too real.

Two souls destined for the stage, two hearts blending together to create beautiful music as individuals, but even better as country music's next power couple- if they can shed the images of who they used to be.


My thoughts on the book:

Quinn is in Nashville to make her dreams come true, while she was a shoe in as a child for acting she knows that her love is music. When she auctions and everything doesn't go as planned she starts to question her choices. She has some family and personal secrets she likes to keep buried she runs into non other then Tucker McGinnis and he agrees to show her the ropes. Will she be able to protect her heart, her secrets and make her dreams come true or will it all fall at the wayside when her family comes calling? Tucker has his own demons he is dealing with but when he makes it big in Nashville he has his own set of choices he needs to make. When he walks in and hears Quinn singing his song he knows he need to get to know that voice and that person like yesterday. But will his demons and secrets keep separating and pushing them further apart or will it all come crumbling down around them and leave them with nothing but each other?
Where do I even begin with this book. I so so so enjoyed it. It had me all over the place with my emotions. One minute my heart is breaking right along side the characters and then in the next I can seen the mending of hearts. This book is a little on the long side but to be honest I could not imagine any portion of the book missing. It was amazing. I truly had a hard time not putting life to the side to finish this book. The characters may be rich and famous but they are just like you and me and the story made you truly feel like you were connecting with friends. I can't say that there was really anything I didn't like about the book. I enjoyed Lily and Stacey's role in the book and how even the small part they had such and impact on the story as a whole. I felt the same way about baby Piper. I loved the raw emotion the author wrote in the book and the storyline was fun to follow. I would say while I did enjoy this book hands down this book is not for all readers as it does contain some strong language, while it is very small amount I just feel the need to warn my readers. Other wise go grab this book because you will not be disappointed.

Must Love Wieners, Casey Griffin Rescue Dog Romance series


Description:
LOVE—UNLEASHED. . .
First in a wickedly funny new series brimming with mystery and romance!
Piper Summers works like a dog juggling three jobs to put herself through veterinary school—driving taxis, delivering pizzas, and singing telegrams. Thankfully, Piper has her devoted dachshund Colin to help her keep things in line. That is, until she gets fired...and someone throws her a bone that is too good to resist.
Aiden Caldwell is an Armani ad come to life—a billionaire CEO who’s just adopted a dachshund from the rescue center where Piper volunteers. He’s hot on Piper’s tail to be his personal dog walker...but he may be after more than a walker for his wiener. The gorgeous, spirited Piper is everything he’s ever wanted from a woman—and more. But can Piper ever love, and trust, a man who has never learned to open his heart—or has she bitten off more than she can chew?

Must Love Wieners is the first book in Casey Griffin's Rescue Dog Romance series!

My thoughts on the book:

Piper Summer has so much going on she doesn't know whats going to have to give but she knows something has to give soon. When she is sent out to a job to sing for a CEO of a company it quickly becomes that things are about to go as not planned and she doesn't know what to do next. She does know she has a few people to avoid for just another few weeks, but will she be able to or will others have plans and she just seems to be the target of those plans.
Aiden just adopted Sophia and needs a dog walker and he needs to convince Piper she is the one that needs to do the job. But will he be able to keep her at arms length and everything business or will something target both of them forcing more things in both there past to come out?

I found this book very tongue and cheek, very much like the title of the book. At first I was looking forward to the the back and forth of the characters however that was just me assuming that would take place. The book is totally from Piper's point of view but trust me when I say you won't be disappointed. The book has some twist and turns in it while at some points you want to smack Piper for your choices you quickly realize there in an under laying story going on and you just need to keep reading to find out whats going to happen next. I was slightly disappointed not knowing the side of the story from Aiden's point of view however when the book is over you quickly see why the author chose not to go that route and I was glad, it truly made the book hard to put down and I found it keeps you drawn into the book wanting to know what was going to happen next. 
There is some adult language.

Love Blooms on Main Street, Olivia Miles



Description:

Fans of Jill Shalvis, Susan Mallery, and RaeAnne Thayne will love the fourth book in Olivia Miles's Briar Creek series.

Love is always in season . . .
Florist Ivy Birch fantasizes about the day a man will surprise her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Especially if that man happens to be Brett Hastings. One stolen kiss at her best friend's wedding and Ivy can't get the sexy ER doctor out of her head.

In the small town of Briar Creek, you can't avoid anyone for very long. Not that Brett has been trying to avoid Ivy. He just can't afford to let anything distract him from his work-not again. So when a hospital fundraiser throws them together, love is the last thing on his mind. But with her quick wit and sweet laugh, soon the one woman he's tried to keep at arm's length is capturing his heart...


My thoughts on the book:

Ivy has had a lot going on in her life she has craved to have the family she never had growing up. When Ivy runs into her high school crush at a wedding and things go right where she wants and then she never hears from Brett after the wedding she wonders if she will ever be able to have her forever family. When she runs into him again months later she wonders if her secrets will keep them apart forever. Brett has been fighting his own demons for some time and one is guilt. He is not happy to have to return home but he knows its only temporary and as long as he keeps focused on the here and now he knows he can get through it. But when his feeling start to change towards the way he is viewing life and family he wonders if all along he has been making the best choices. 
  
   I loved the cover of this book and figured it would be a book about two who are reconnected and fall in love and maybe a little humor and fun along the way. I found this book on the boring side I lost interest in the story, what started off as a great story line seem to drag and almost become whinny, it seemed to repeat itself a lot.          
    Every chapter I kept waiting for something to change but it was this back and forth through almost the whole book, by time you figure out nothing was going to change much you had to keep reading because you were almost done. I found the book lacking much of a story. I Think I really enjoyed Kara and her side story through the book I kept hoping for more for her. She seemed to lack confidence and self worth but with love from friends and family she seemed not the way to find that. 
This book was just not for me and did contain adult scenes so may not be ok for all readers.

Waking Up with a Billionaire Katie Lane (The Overnight Billionaires #3)

Whats the book about:

He can have anything he wants...except her



Famed artist Grayson Beaumont is the most elusive of the billionaire Beaumont brothers. He has a reputation for seducing any woman with only a look, word, or sensual stroke of his brush. But now Grayson has lost all his desire to paint . . . unless he can find a muse to unlock his creative-and erotic-imagination.


Chloe knew she might have to shed her clothes when she agreed to pose for the celebrated artist, but she wasn't expecting to shed all her inhibitions as well. Under his intense scrutiny, there's nothing she can hide...including a secret from her past that, once exposed, will change how he looks at her forever.




My thoughts on the book:


Chloe has some secrets she would like to keep those that way. She also has one that has her running, but she needs the money to get to the next place and she needs it quick. Will Grayson still stand by his offer or will it all blow up in her face and leave with no where to run? Grayson can have anyone and anything he wants in his life he's and his brothers have worked hard for what they have but money can't buy everything. Six months ago Chloe entered his world and left him wondering what more he needs in his life. Now that he's questioning so many things he wonders if he can focus on art and find his muse to get him there or will he be left heartbroken and still not able to paint?

I can't honestly say I don't know what it was, but  when I read what this book was about I had no desire to read it but the cover completely kept catching my attention and I am glad I grabbed it. This book was a fun read and I had a completely hard time putting it down. I started reading and before I knew it I was at the half way mark and felt like I was truly catching up with friends. While the story is about billionaires that didn't seemed to be the heart of the matter of the storyline it truly felt very enjoyable and such a fun story to read. This book does have some strong language and some adult scenes so this is not a suitable read for all readers but for those of you who want to dive in find a good drink and sit back this book will grab you and keep you captivated through out.

Evan And Darcy, Melanie Coles




What's the book about:

Jane Austen gets a little dusty in this outback retelling of a beloved story about a man who learns that first impressions can be wrong when you’re looking for Ms Right.

Wheat farmer Evan Bennet is happy being single until his brother falls for the new girl in town, wealthy hotel owner Claire Bingley. Suddenly finding a girl seems more appealing…unless you’re talking about Claire’s best friend, pretentious lawyer Darcy Fitzwilliam. Her cold manners have Evan seeing red, and when a cute girl with links to Darcy’s past catches his eye, he’s even more determined to dislike her.

When a startling revelation turns Evan’s world upside down and he unexpectedly crosses Darcy’s path again, he’s forced to reassess his opinion of her. But just as he starts to open his heart, a crisis engulfs his family, threatening to destroy any hope of a future with Darcy.

With a cloud hanging over his family, Evan knows his chance of winning Darcy’s heart is gone… until some surprising news and a generous gift leave him wondering if her heart might be his after all.

My thoughts on the book:
Evan is a simple country boy who is helping on his family farm since he was six, he loves what he does but he has another passion and he keeps that close to his heart as well. When Claire, Darcy, Jemma and Cara walk into his town and into his family lives things start to change. Will he be able to find love and follow his heart or will he be left putting the family back together when one of them causes the family name into question? 
Darcy has always came from a lifestyle where you don't have always wonder where your next meal is coming from. She is a hard working attorney and making a name for herself when her best friend drags her to this backwards town she doesn't make the best impression on everyone. Her family has there own set of secrets and when they are called into question she wonders if she need to look at herself and the way she was brought up and change things. Will she be able to get the answers she's looking for before its to late or will she loose the one thing she's just found and knows she wants like nothing else? 
I really enjoyed this book while it was slow at some points and transitioning seemed to be frustrating at some points it did not take away to much from the over all story line. The book captures your attention and keeps you wanting more to see whats going to happen it keeps you completely drawn in. I really enjoyed Jamie and Evan's relationship and Claire and Darcy's, it seemed like one of these did not fit but as you get more drawn in it just seemed to work perfectly.  The only thing I felt if I could have changed anything is I would have loved to have Darcy's thoughts and play in the book more I think it would have allow me to connect with her more. 
Over all I would have to say I rate this book a 3.5/4 stars it was enjoyable and completely worth the read.

Family Man, Kelly Eadon gift card Giveaway from 7/11-7/15 THIS IS CLOSED



Welcome Y'all to Book, Line and sinker: 
  I am super excited to be working with Kelly Eadon on this book giveaway and thought it would be fun to get to know more about her. Please welcome her. 
 Welcome Kelly, 
    
 I have totally enjoyed both Kelly's books I can't wait to read more from her. I love as a reader getting to know more about the authors I have read, So I sat down with Kelly and asked her some questions I hope you enjoy the interview and stick around for the giveaway at the end. 




1)  How did you get into writing and when did I start? 

My parents' attic has a box filled with books we made from fabric and cardboard in the second grade, with my stories written inside.  I was obsessed.  Even when I wasn't physically writing my stories down, I created them constantly and they almost always involved romance.  One of my favorite activities was cutting characters out of magazines and making up stories about them.  I had hundred of envelopes saved, each with their own little cast of paper cutout people inside.

As I got older it became more and more obvious to me that writing as a career would be difficult, if not impossible.  I found myself falling in love with the idea of being a lawyer and working to protect abused children.  The funny thing is that I've managed to pursue that dream and revive my writing aspirations.  My mom passed away right before I graduated law school and got married, and I found myself in a bit of a funk.  She was a musician, and so it felt very important for me to capture and carry on some of her creative spirit.  After some soul searching, my husband suggested I try writing again.  I'd be lying if I said it was easy going.  I wrote The Wedding Date and submitted it to agents, one of whom requested a revise and re-submit.  She ultimately passed on my re-write, but Dawn Dowdle of the Blueridge Literary Agency signed me.  And requested that I re-write my manuscript.  When Grand Central got it on submission, they requested that I pitch a three book series...and of course that I do some major re-writes.  Technically, I've seen my first book published, but I've re-written it at least a dozen times so I'm not sure it counts!


2) What writers really inspire me? 

This is such a hard question to answer because I know and respect so many authors.  Within the romance industry, I very much look up to Kelly Moran.  She writes stories that suck me in and keep me enthralled, she was kind and generous with giving me advice when I was starting out, and she truly loves and values her fans.  She's the type of author I aspire to be in terms of writing style and personality.  Outside of romance, I love The Hunger Games.  I resisted reading it for years because I found the premise gruesome.  Once I started to read I was hooked and I continue to marvel at Suzanne Collins' ability to write compelling characters and fast moving plots.


3)  Do you have other projects in the works?  

I'm in the middle of writing my third Belmont Beach book, which is Ryan's story.  It's a blast to write because he's very witty and sarcastic, so he needed to wind up with a woman who would challenge him.  I have one more plot line in the back of my mind in case I decide to continue with the Belmont Beach series.  If not, I have the first book of my next series written, as well as two plot lines for sequels.  The second series starts with Ben DeLuca, a Hollywood actor who's wrestling with his desire for a more traditional lifestyle and professional photographer Alex Pettit, who is limelight avoidant.  Their chemistry is explosive, but they want completely different things in life.


4)  What do you like to do in your spare time? 

 Spare time?  What's that?  I have a regular day job as a lawyer, which doesn't always leave me the most time for writing.  When I'm not working and not writing I'm often at the gym or walking my dogs.  My husband and I have been active in animal rescue for more than ten years and currently have three cats and two dogs.  I also love to drink wine and eat good food.  Thank goodness we live in Richmond, where there are lots of restaurants to enjoy!

5)  For your own reading do you enjoy e-reader or paperback books?  

Paperback.  I'm guilty of compulsively one click shopping and I love to organize my kindle into different categories, but bookstores and libraries bring me a level of joy and excitement that can never be replicated.  Every Summer I anticipate laying in a pool chair and reading obsessively.  I find myself building huge To Read lists on Goodreads and placing holds on all the newest releases at the library.  I love exploring the library and leaving with a pile of books. That said, my husband and I downsized houses last year, so most books I want to own need to be on Kindle.  Otherwise, there'd be no room for us to live in our house with the books!

I think this is a problem most readers have, Well I know I do. 


6)- I just have fallen in love with the characters of Belmont, Can you
   tell us what your upcoming book The Family Man is all about? 

The Family Man is about Beth Beverly.  We met her as Kate's best friend in The Wedding Date.  She's based on a real life acquaintance of mine who is sunshine personified.  I always admired her, so when it came time to write Beth a lot of her mannerisms popped into my head.  She's attracted to the slightly brooding and mysterious Griffin Hall, who is a former rockstar and moved to the small town of Belmont where he owns a coffee shop and is raising his daughter Mabel.  They're compulsively attracted to one another, but both feel a responsibility to go about dating the "right" way.  I tried to play with this idea that we're all told there are rules to dating and social acceptable ways to pursue our attraction to someone else.  Real life often doesn't work that way and Beth and Griffin the perfect example.  They both feel a strong responsibility for the people in their lives and need to learn how to balance that with pursuing their own happiness.



7)What is one thing you really enjoyed about writing The Family Man?  

Griffin's daughter Mabel.  She's a trip.  I don't have kids but I spent a lot of time babysitting, and my job brings me into contact with a lot of children.  Mabel is spunky and full of fire.  I found her to be endlessly entertaining.  She's one of those characters I didn't have to work to create; she more or less already existed and I just translated her onto paper.

I just love Mabel she is a spitfire and adds to much to this book!!!


8)  Can we expect to see more from the characters of Belmont Beach?  

That's up to my publisher!  To be candid, I wrote The Wedding Date as a standalone and it was my publisher who encouraged me to expand and follow up on some of the other characters. I have a few more Belmont residents I'd love to provide a HEA for, but I'm also satisfied by the opportunity I've had to fully portray this really close friend group.  This reminds me that I need to email my editor and ask her this question!



Well I want to thank Kelly for taking time with me today and doing this interview she has been such a blast to work with. I have reviewed both her books "The Wedding Date" and "Family Man" both reviews are up on my blog and I would love to have you check them out. 
Well thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment below and Click on the link below to enter to win a gift card. Make sure you leave your email address in the comments after you have entered to that Kelly can contact the winner. 

Thanks again,
 Sarah

Tangled Lies, Connie Mann



What's the book about:

Orphaned as a child in Russia, boat captain Sasha Petrov has spent most of her life adrift, anchored by only her loving foster family. So when they beg her to return to the family marina in Safe Harbor, Florida, for Mama Rosa’s sixtieth birthday, Sasha complies, hoping to put the past behind her. But Mama Rosa has other plans: she wants her three foster daughters to find Tony, the biological son who disappeared twenty years earlier.
Sasha agrees to try, but that’s easier said than done when bad boy Jesse Claybourne shows up, reigniting an old attraction. Back in Safe Harbor on a quest of his own, Jesse gets tangled up in Sasha’s search, and soon the two are close to uncovering an old town secret that some will stop at nothing to protect.
When Sasha’s dog and Jesse are attacked, they realize the past is hiding something more sinister than they ever imagined. Can they expose the truth without destroying Sasha’s family and breaking each other’s hearts, or are they sailing against the wind?
My thoughts on the book:

Sasha doesn't stay put for long life is always easier that way, at least thats what she keeps telling herself. When she gets a call from her sister to come home she wonders if she should go when things go aray its time to go home and see if she can help out. When her mom asks her to help find her missing brother she starts and people are not happy about it and they are non to happy to help her out. When things start happening she wonders what more sinister things are going on. Jesse is home well where he has always felt like home and no one is happy to see him, well only Sasha, mama Rosa and Blaze but he has to stay and win this race he made a promise and he never breaks his promise. When things go wrong he wonders if someone from his past is after him or if someone is trying to stop him from entering the race. Will he and Sasha be able to get to the bottom of it before some one gets hurt or will it be to late?
I really enjoyed this book. It grabs you in the first chapter and keeps you interested in the story and whats going to happen next the whole book. Its completely captivating. I love how the book keeps you guessing from beginning to the end. There really was no slow part I thought for sure the book was going to end in a cliff hanger and it just got better. There really is nothing bad to say about this book. There is no cussing or not adult talk which make this book perfect for any reader. Seriously you can not go wrong with this book I can not wait to read more from Connie.
