What did I think?
I loved the first novella in this series (Justice Calling) and, happily, there isn’t anything about this novella that I don’t LOVE either!!!
The main character, Jade Crow, is an intelligent, funny, independent woman with a big heart who I just fell in love with; exactly what I want in a female lead. I feel that the supporting cast in this novella, both good & bad, were just as well written; with depth of character and completely believable. Quite a skill to achieve in a book of this small size!
I found the plot gripping; the murder mystery, Jade’s ex-boyfriend threat & the relationship development with Alek, all arcs progressing at a pace that felt both breathless but believable.
I was on the edge of my seat; I laughed, I cried, I enjoyed.
