I enjoyed reading this authors book. Its started off very good nice and gently. I loved the treatment of the characters because it made me feel as though I was in the story as well. The Author has a good story line I was hooked from the first line. She gradually built up the story into a love triangle. Then the storm began to grow between all 3 of them, Jake, Alice and Jessica which kept me hooked until the end. I must say I enjoyed the book very much. Jean Watcham
I was intrigued by the title and purchased the book. It was fast paced and I couldn't put it down. I was surprised by the plot twists I can envision at least one or two additional books to pick up where this one left off
The author has done an excellent job creating complex and believable characters. She immerses the reader in the worlds of finance, law, and psychiatrics; and weaves it all together with an engaging and tension-filled plot that keeps the reader wondering what will happen next.
