I loved this story and the characters worked well together, the subject matter was well written and had me turning the pages to try and get to the next instalment in the story. The twists and turns of the mystery added excitement to the story and a good foundation to the story. This is the first book I have read by this author and can’t wait to read the next book in the series and hopefully carry on this wonderful journey with Valerie and friends.
