For someone who has read the "Sleeping Beauty" trilogy and "Exit to Eden" and "The Story of O", this book disturbed me. I understand that a good novel should be gripping and moving, I get that. But I shouldn't feel a little vomit rise in the back of my throat. The underlying mystery of the 20 years missing father is based on pedophilia and incest. There were way too many vivid descriptions that fed way too much to my imagination that I didn't need, or want, to think of - I didn't need to read this kind of garbage and won't pick it up again. I'll be glad when it's off my bookshelf. Before you ask, yes I did finish it. I have never been able to just stop reading a book (maybe I believe it will get better by the end....). I can't even give this one a full star - 1/2 a star and not worth the trade credit.
Great series, could not put this book down. I was reading thru the book praying the entire time that the secret would be kept & everyone could go on living their lives as they have been. The suspense at the end of the book was unbeleivable...edge of your seat. The only thing that may stop someone from reading is it does deal with a pedophile, which is not a great topic to read about, but it didn't bother me enough to stop reading the book.
Fabulous and suspenseful conclusion to the "Dead" trilogy. Once I started it, I could not put it down. If you are a romantic suspense fan, then you have to give this series a try.
