As Rain digs deeper into the case, will she become the killer's next victim?
My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: This was a light, but highly enjoyable read. I wouldn't go as far as to call it a cozy, but it is on that spectrum.. It is definitely the perfect beach read. While this is normally not my style of read, I do believe this is a series I would definitely continue when looking for something a bit lighter.
The author developed her characters beautifully and the story flowed smoothly. I found it to be atmospheric perfect for a mystery without going overboard.
This is the type of book that IndiePicks Magazine and Patomi Media Group was developed to highlight.
