This is the second book in the Shadow of a Doubt series. Just like with the first book in the series, Rebecca Remains, the main characters keep you invested. I have come to enjoy books by this author very much. Due to some of the content talked about in this book I would not recommend it to anyone under the age of 18. I am looking forward to the next installment in this series. I can’t wait to see what the author has up her sleeve.
