"From the very start of this book, it hooked me. Vera has a great voice and I just loved the way she looks at things and her determination. Exciting and suspenseful, I thought Vera's race for the truth was entertaining. I'll eagerly look forward to Rachelle's next book. Highly recommend this. Loved it!" - review from Amazon
