The drama and the effects of her emotions shine through leaving the reader waiting for more. This is definitely a page turner!
Kate White is a talented author! Her first thriller definitely deserves its place on the New York Times Best Seller List and should be devoured by any reader who wants to be forced to turn the page. It is a book to be devoured quickly, putting it down is not an option. While at times the scenes unfolding felt over done, it was not possible to stop reading - I just had to know, what was next!
Ms. White's second thriller, THE SIXES is on shelves in hardback, and I cannot wait to being turning the pages!
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
