Rated 5 out of 5 by from great :) I'd say that Norah McClintock's skills in in building suspense and wrtiting mysteries have improved since the beginning of the series :D i also love how she dropped hints along the way, which she didnt do much of in the other robyn hunter books. this book was a good conclusion to the series, but i got really annoyed with Robyn being so needy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good End to a Good Series I loved this book. I just bought it today (Dec. 26), and read it cover to cover in one sitting. It only took me just a little over or under(?), three hours to read it. Boy did that surprise me, because normally I'm a slow reader. lol. The book focus on Robyn's isues with Nick, and the fact that he spends a lot of time with a frined from his past named, Danny. but he seems to never have the time to spend with her. Morgan tries to convince her to go out with the new kid, James. And Robyn considers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actual Review This book was just as suspenceful and mysterious as all other books by Norah McClintock. Robyn and Nick have some rocky times in their relationship but they manage to overcome them. I really, really loved this series and I'm sad to see it end. I hope Norah McClintock continues to write more teen books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dying to read this ! Summary: It’s a new school year and Robyn finds herself swept up in tragedy and mystery when a new boy, James, transfers to her school, and she is asked to tutor him. Robyn is shocked when she finds out that James’ brother was murdered several years earlier, and that the accused killer, Eddy Leonard, was acquitted of all charges due to some savvy moves on his defense lawyer’s part. To Robyn’s horror the defense attorney in question happens to be her mother, Patricia Stone. And now she dreads the day James finds out who she really is. Meanwhile, Robyn is feeling insecure about her relationship with Nick. He seems to be more interested in spending time with his childhood friend, April than he does with Robyn. And for his part, Nick wonders why Robyn is spending so much time with James. Robyn is relieved when James announces that he and his father will be leaving the country at Christmas--his father has found a job abroad. But when she agrees to spend a weekend with James, she stumbles on a plot to avenge his brother’s death that puts her own life in peril. I can't wait to read this ! I think it's the last book in the series because there were supposed to be 9 books in total, and this is the 9th. I don't want the series to end though ! :( I hope Norah starts a new series soon because I love her books. Anyway, caaaaaan't wait ! :D
