Book three in this series. Plenty of intrigue, questions and twists in this one. Outstanding story and romance to top it all off. There were a couple of places the story bottomed out, then spun back up into the mystery you expect. The whole series is a good read, don’t miss it.
Took a while but decent read!
This book started out really slow, I put it down a few times before I got into the good parts of the story, the ending was definitely unexpected and the build up in the second half of the book definitely came in and saved my reading experience. I read it as a part of a boxed set but thought i’d give it an individual review.
Off the grid trilogy
I loved the first three books. I just could not put it down. Can’t wait for more. The suspense kept me going. Awesome.
