    I became so invested in the characters that I cried at the end. Good read with a good ending.
  • Ended too soon

    By Jess Jess 111
    Definitely a page turner and an ending I never expected but the end feels too rushed once the secrets are revealed. I would like to have learned more about these characters that I have grown so fond of.
  • So good!

  • Just not sure what I think

    By Cari Devine-Blount
    I'm happy, so many people loved it. It was a little much for me. I felt it bounced around a little too much, and being a person with children and grandchildren; I had to fast forward. I'm glad others liked it.
  • Completely stunned! Great book!

    By Holly_Pop22
    Wow, where do I even begin! This book had me from chapter one. Constantly wanting to pick it up and read just a little bit more. Full of twists and turns. The ending had me completely shocked, my mouth literally dropped to the floor! Almost cried a few chapters, but so worth it! I highly recommend this book.
