Flower Rating: 4.5

4.5  flowers


Dawn Skyy weaves a unique tale blending mystery, suspense, and chick lit. It shows the dangers of celebrity stalkers and the beginnings of a heart warming love story. The characters are well thought out and the police procedurals show her knowledge in the field. The only downfall is that this book is a serial, Part Two is in the works, leaving the reader with a cliff hanger and wanting more. I can’t wait to read what happens in Part Two and how Russell and Lexi continue to fight Jenna’s attacks.
