My Review

The first time I learn something about this book besides that it was set in Louisiana, was when I read the synopsis before diving into the story. Still, even with having read the synopsis, I had no idea what I was going to find in terms of the plotting. How everything would develop. How the things that the synopsis said, were going to happen.

I was captivated from the first chapter. The brilliant story telling, the suspense in each scene, each question and each revelation. It was a while ride, and I loved ever single second of reading this novel.

First, the characters. The very first moment of introduction of the characters and realizing some of their reasons for acting that way, was immediately a positive point. I loved the way the characters interacted with each other, the way their true reasons for the events and the acts and responses they had, kept being revealed as we kept reading.

Secondly, there is this amazing feeling about being transported to a moment in time and space. To truly submerge into the story and follow the characters life, peeling the pages and letters go of my control and just go for a ride. That’s what reading this book felt like. I couldn’t stop reading because I just wanted to see what was going to happen next.

The suspense lasted until the very last page. It kept me going and going, wondering what would happen, what new information I was going to learn, when were the characters find out the truth. That was the perfect element for a mystery, crime and suspense novel.

A book about Revenge and Redemption. A book with secrets. A book that has fantastic characters, good guys and bad guys. And a book I full heartily recommend if you want to go on a journey that will make you excited and definitely intriguing by each question, each theory, each surprising moments. It will all be worth wild.
