“Thank you Kay for writing another great adventure for Taylor and her family. The crime that took place was a difficult one, but per usual Taylor figures it out. And we get more insight into the criminal that Taylor has been pursuing on a personal level. Per usual, the book ends at a point where I can’t wait for the next installment. Great addition to the Hart’s Ridge storyline. I would definitely recommend.” – klderosier
