I really enjoyed this book.
I listen to this book within a week! I listen to it during a very stressful time of my life and I found that it brought a great distraction. I love the characters and I love the near ration. You would’ve thought three different people when they are reading this book. The performance was outstanding! Melanie Carlson the author is a favorite of mine so I knew I wouldn’t be let down.
