LESS YOU KNOW is book 2 in the “Ashes to Ashes” Series and I’m not really sure it should be read as a stand-alone. There are a lot of references to book 1 AND if you aren’t used to the writing style AND lost on plot points, I think it would be a less enjoyable reading experience for you – and let’s face it… the point of reading is to have the best experience possible.
This is a multi-layered story with different threads that run throughout. It’s a mystery/suspense with twists and turns along the way. It’s one of those stories that I thought I had a handle on and then *poof* oh wait, there is something I missed. The story is fluid and, like with book 1, the timeline is well defined and told from multiple POV. Several times, I had to look back at the chapter headings to figure out what time it was and whose POV I was reading.
I’ve enjoyed watching the MC grow and find her voice and I would recommend this series (read in order, of course).
