This was another good book. I like them because you know who the characters are. You are always trying to figure out what is going to happen and find your self reading instead of watching tv.
Ellie Kline is a great character. Her inner turmoil from the trauma she experienced makes her seem real. I love her commitment to helping others. This is a great series and I look forward to the next book.
I could not put this book down. I had to know what was on the next page. I like the human aspect and emotions of this novel. I eagerly await the next book!
Ellie returns to work after the turmoil and trauma of dealing with the nemesis of her youth, now challenged with a new supervisor and the perils and pitfalls of her unexpected assumption of responsibility for a young child.
Once again, I am on the edge of my seat while reading this book. I couldn’t stop reading until I finished it. I hope there’s another coming soon.
