To finally catch this twisted monster and learn what happened to her stolen girl, Casey will have to risk everything…
Wow! Double wow! Triple wow! This was such an amazing book!
It had me in it’s claws from the very beginning and it was wonderful, harsh, heartbreaking and heart warming at the same time. My heart and head went through so many emotions here. It was just crazy.
People do a lot for money, but sometimes I really cannot get it in my head how far they would go. Do they even care how much pain they can cause? Maybe they feel less guilty because on the other hand they make people happy? No, I don’t think they are able to feel anything. They only thing they see are big fat dollar signs…
Casey and her team have a tough nut the size of a coconut to crack and more than once they find themselves in very dire situations and more than once it’s touch and go. They work together as a very well oiled machine and the culprits really don’t stand a chance. They can run, but they will get caught without a doubt.
I shed a few tears. Were they happy ones? Sad ones? Or maybe a bit of both? I wonder which ones you will shed. 😊
Loved it. 5 stars.
