I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun mystery to read. I loved Frankie and how he wanted to help Verity. I thought it was funny that Verity had a pet skunk named Lucy made me laugh. This had a good plot and fast pace. I didn’t particularly care for Ellis at first but he did only know what he had been told about Verity it does surprise me that he hired Verity. I liked Ellis changed and allowed himself to know the real Verity. I did chuckle at times while reading this. This kept my attention all through the book until the end. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.
