The mystery of this novel is very gripping and can possibly keep the reader up at nights (guilty as charged). The story is not your typical romance and makes one realize you can’t trust someone on face value. Sprinkled with the gruesome realities of the crimes committed in this world, this novel has every element of a mystery novel. The character of Claire appears to be the strongest, most resilient, yet patient, woman. Author Lisa Regan has penned an excellent novel. Recommended for adult readers of the genre.
