In the second installment for Beth Young I was captivated throughout the book. I love a good series that has strong characters who you grow with through each book.
Beth Young is fast becoming a favourite of mine as she is strong and she has so much room for growth. Getting in at release date for his series allowed me to feel more part of the journey instead of playing catch up.
This story had what I needed in a book. The imagery was vivid and you got to see how they went through the case to try and solve the issue.
As always this author makes you understand the nature of people and to really try and bring out the best side in his characters well okay not the villains.
I would like to thank the publisher and the author for the ARC and for allowing me to be part of this blogtour.
