Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit disapointed I read all her books since she started, this is the first book I found different...not her words or not the same author at all. Ouch You say I know she seemed to write like an another other I read but she died unfortunaly Mary MacCracken. Don't get me wrong I still got her next book skin deep, hoping it will go back as it use to. Sometimes authors seem to go out of their comfort zone to see, like Cathy Glass one book I returned all her other books were great. I can go on and on. My opinion sorry to say.
