The Alton and Kane series is just amazing.
The author already revealed some snippets of the backstories of both great main characters, but there was still that feeling of wanting more. I really wanted to find out how it all started and what they went through.
This book is giving us everything we always wanted to know about Jenna. It’s giving information about her previous job and why she is where she is and how she got there.
She is very determined and confident. The way she arrives in Black Rock Falls and takes over is wow. She immediately starts dotting the I’s and striking the t’s by wanting to defend the abused ones and making the ones on their high horses step down.
The town love her for it, but some don’t feel the same way and want to take her down straight away.
Jenna has been through a lot and although she is scared and scarred, she won’t take a step back before the case is closed.
I loved it. I still have to read Kane’s story and I am already convinced it will be as good as this one. 5 stars.
Thank you, D.K. Hood and Bookouture
