    I don't read  lot of murder mystery types, but this book intrigued me. I was not disappointed either! I started reading it and had it finished in less than 24 hours. I just had to know who was behind the kidnapping and killing of the teenage girls. I also had to know who Rory would choose to be her boyfriend. With three guys fighting for her affection and her ability to be completely oblivious to how strong their affections go, you will be on edge trying to see who she ends up with. I personally was cheering for her childhood friend Gage the whole time. The other two, Dominic and Holden, have been her friends for a long time in the absence of Gage. Unfortunately, Rory's family has had too high of hopes that Rory and Dominic would get together, something that definitely will turn a teenage girl off. Holden, only recently started showing Rory his interest and he goes about it all wrong. He only pursues her after he's been drinking and is less than suave about it.

    The underlying story though is about a mysterious person that kidnaps teenage girls. They eventually wash up on the beach many weeks and possibly months later. This serial killer seems to be stalking Rory. The possible reason is because his last victim, who is missing the entire story, looks a lot like Rory. No one has a clue who it is, except that six years ago, Rory was pretty sure she saw him getting ready to dump a body when she was playing hide and seek on a golf course. This nightmare has plagued her off and on, but now it has taken a scarier turn with the recent events. Will they find the killer? Will they find Lindsay, the missing girl, before it is too late? Who will win over Rory's heart? The author does a great job at leaving you guessing about all three outcomes until the very end. It was a great read.

    Elena Dillon has written another very exciting and fast-paced suspenseful YA romance!  
    I was so into this book that I lost sleep trying to finish it in one night!  This is a young author book, but I believe adults will enjoy this greatly too, as I certainly did.   
    There is romance, suspense, plenty of "whodoneit" to fulfill desire for excellent book!!   
    I was kept busy trying to figure out who the villain was but I failed miserably at figuring it out.  
    I received a free pdf copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    This isn't my usual genre, but couldn't seem to drag myself away from the suspense. Even when I had to leave, I synced the story on my phone, and read while waiting or riding in the car. This one sucks you in big time, and with books, that's never bad.

    I lived in SC for five years, and I always connect with places I know. I loved the southern hospitality references, oh and the squirrel references were hilarious. Now I'll admit the sport of choice, I know nothing about it, but Rory loves to golf and SC has lovely courses, or so I've been told.

    Characters, Rory grows on you, but her struggles and decisions felt real. She's from a well to do family, so most of her turmoil is angsty, teenager stuff like freedom, friends, and of course those dumb boys she'll never understand.

    Ok onto the mystery. This is where the story takes a dark angle, but I'm saying that and that you'll never see the bad guy coming. Even if you think you have it pegged.

    Bravo and can't wait to read more in the future.

    I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Rory’s life seems perfect. She has great friends, she’s best friends with her parents best friends’ son. Unfortunately, he’s crazy about her and although he’d make the perfect boyfriend, she’s unsure if she shares his feelings. Then out of the blue, her childhood crush moves back in across the street. He’s gotten older, taller and gorgeous! With his surprising return begins the rumors of his troubled past. Which are true and which are lies? Added to that, a teenage girl is missing, will she be next?

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I’d expected it to focus mainly on the romance aspect, but it was a perfect mix. I was completely engrossed from start to finish. I found it amusing that Rory had a knack for getting herself into trouble. The mystery was amazing, and had a few twists. When you find out who the serial kidnapper is, it’ll certainly shock you! This was an amazing hard to put down novel, one I’m sure many of you will enjoy!

    I received this book for a fair and honest review.
    This book really had 2 story lines. One is of Rory and her two love interested Gage and Dominic. The other story line is of the a serial kidnapper/murderer. The latest victim is a friend and classmate.
    Rory really has a special talent of finding trouble. She tries to do the right thing but still trouble finds her again and again.
    The person behind the kidnapping was not someone I expected. I was on the edge of my seat reading how it was all going to play out when it was revealed who he was.
