My Review:

I received this book from netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. Having read the Stephanie Plum series from Janet Evanovich, I was very intrigued to read this new series of Janet’s because how different it sounded then the Plum Series.  

Janet did a great job of creating well developed characters as well. In addition to well developed characters, Janet also did a good job of setting the scene through out the book. Each scene was well crafted and written out. As a reader you felt that you were on their journey with them. She also did a great job of inserting humor in at the right times in the book. So at times you were on the edge of your seat waiting to see what was going to happen to laughing out loud.

The reason I would give this book a four out of five stars is that after a couple of chapters you could kind of predict how the book was going to end based off the material that was written. However, Janet did a great job of keeping your attention through out the book with all the twists and turns that the predicatability of the ending of the book did not bother me.  I am interested to see what the next book in the series will be like and to see how she decides to develop Emerson and Riley’s story.
