~ Review by Angela ~
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Beyond the synopsis of the book, there really isn’t much else to say about it. The suspense wasn’t really there for me as you kind of are told who’s behind the problems early in the book. There was way too much dialogue and conversations between the characters. It just felt disjointed and kind of jumbled. It was hard to read at times because of all of the talking and internal dialogues. I didn’t really get into the story or click with any of the characters. It was a so-so read that I think could have been better without all of the dialogue and more suspense. I give this 3 books.
