Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I must tell you that I had waited for good while(years) to get my hands on a copy of this book. I had read an excerpt on her website and could hardly wait to get the actual book in my hands and get to know the characters better. When I finally received my copy on 13 July, 2011 I could not put the book down. I sat down and started reading in the early evening and did not stop reading until 1 o'clock in the morning! I did not put it down today until I had finished it. I am now hungry for more! I want to know what happens next in the story! I simply must know what is going to happen to all the characters, I hope to be able to get my hands on a sequel soon! I would recommend this book to anyone that likes a good strong story line with plenty of mystery surrounding the characters, I would not say the book itself is part of the mystery genre but there is enough intrigue that it certainly keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. A reader of any age can appreciate this book, and I look forward to reading more books by Judy Ferro!
