Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good characters but lacked a compelling storyline I loved Grace and Tilly and the story was well written but it sure went on for a long time in parts. It was an interesting look into a typical neighbourhood and its characters. Cannon is an engaging writer but by half way through, my interest was waning.
