  • Mild Spoilers I would rate this book 2.5 stars It is enjoyable enough to read but ultimately forgettable My main issue with the novel was the plot The first half was a page turner The suspense concerning finding out Don s secret kept me wanting I empathized with Kelli, and her heart break at being lied to It was shaping into a great book to read The second part, however, when Kelli went to Shoal Creek to meet her family, went down hill The family s instant adoption of Kelli without knowing her [...]


  • This is the first book I have read by this author, and I must say that I really liked it I have heard that a lot of people, even my own grandmother, could not put this book down, but I must say that it wasn t the case for me I enjoyed it while reading it, but I never had to read the next chapter to find out what happened I have read a lot of mystery novels, and that being the case, I guessed the mystery early on I still had an interest in it, and it wasn t boring, I just did not have that urge t [...]

  • In my opinionAnd simply put that is all this review ist a book that would feel loved and at home on my shelves I didn t hate it but I really didn t love it eitherough I wanted to I ve attempted a book by this author before and abandoned it because I simply didn t connect with it This one I did finish but only because it is the first one of the year and I didn t want to start the year out with an abandoned book I m not sorry I finished itI don t feel it was wasted time, if only to confirm this is [...]


  • I liked the idea of this story, but the execution of it seemed long and drawn out, and the characters seemed less than believable at times.
