Dusty vows to uncover the mystery, but her quest for justice puts her in the path of evil, a force that won’t stop until she’s silenced.
As the blurb to the book says so well, Jack was indeed after something and Dusty was more than happy to help. Teenagers are in their own way very romantic and well meeting Jack the way she did was romantic, mysterious and he oh so needs her help, what a perfect dreamy happening. Will Dusty be able to help Jack? What was the evil force bound to try and stop her. Grab this book and jump in for all these answers and more.
What a wonderful debut novel from BJ Sheldon! I love the way she just takes hold and runs with this story, I couldn’t stop reading, even when I was so tired my eyes kept closing. Dropping the Kindle on the forehead isn’t so bad but is what happens when you HAVE to know what’s going to happen next. I recommend this book to all lovers of paranormal, I don’t think age will have anything to do with the downright enjoyment of this book. I find myself going to buy the next book because …well I NEED to know, right?
I give this book 4 stars, and thank Ms. Sheldon for allowing me to read and review her book, I will be watching for lots more from you!
