She was kidnapped not once but twice and now someone wants her dead because of it….
Her life was a lie!
Bailey knew her upbringing wasn’t normal but she’s worked hard to stabilize her life. At 29, she finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then suddenly her mother dies, leaving a gaping hole and a discovery that they may not even be related. If Guy, the private investigator is to be believed, her life is a lie. Using the skills she learned on the streets, Bailey travels back through a sketchy and dangerous past, to find answers. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of those who want her dead and convincing Guy she can do it alone, are making it difficult to discover not only the secrets of her mother’s past but that of a family claiming she is theirs.
Everyone seems to have a story… but who’s telling the truth? And who wants her dead? Is Guy part of the solution? Or part of the problem? To discover the facts, she’ll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets, dating back over thirty years.
All the greedy things people will do for money pfft! This was a very thrilling story. I loved it from beginning to end. It has a lot of suspense and although you will get to know more things, it will not take away from the story. The only thing that bothered me was that they were not open to each other, thus creating certain situations that could’ve been avoided in my opinion. But then again, that bothers me in movies too, so I don’t think it’s necessarily something from the book. It does not take away from it.
I also liked that it wasn’t really a scenario where all was good and well when it came to be revealed. That kept it very realistic I think. I think it’s a very good read. Hope you like it too!
