I have to say I have read a couple books like this lately and really enjoyed this one. I don’t know if it was me or the book but I could not get through this book. There was a lot going on and yet it seemed so slow. I liked the characters and the plot. I just couldn’t get excited about the story and it seemed to take forever to get there.
I hope some of you really enjoy this book. This book was a Christy Award finalist for a reason. I was just unable to get it into it as others had.
Note: I did receive a copy of this book for free from www.booksneeze.com to read and review. The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
