I enjoyed this book as a beta reader and I enjoyed reading it again.  Ann is a great writer and I am looking forward to this new series.

This is a really interesting read. The story opens up and you read several pages and then it loops, but it is different. You have to pay attention to see if you can pick up the clues. I have never read anything like it. I did enjoy the characters and I look forward to more like this!

I love Ann's style. The story was great. I couldn't figure out the point of repeating the scene with slight variations each time though. I guess the third times the charm to get it right. Other than that I would have given it 5 stars.
