I received a gifted copy and am providing a review. This is book three in the Angeline Porter Trilogy.
This book starts out at an extremely fast clip, slows down in the middle, and picks up again near the end. I can only imagine that the first two books in this series are written in the same way. I expect the other two can also be read as standalones, but they may be helpful in getting a better understanding of the characters we meet in book three.
Angeline (Ang) has discovered that she has a sister in Bibi and a brother in Ian. This tale takes us on Ang’s trip to Florida to help Bibi who apparently has gotten mixed up with a bad group of people and Ang isn’t sure what’s going on. She is working with Gerard, an undercover FBI agent, who she finds out isn’t necessarily telling her the entire truth. She also teams up with Detective Prosper while she’s in Florida. Ang is also grieving the loss of her other sister, Sophia, and is trying to understand why she did what she did and is after the truth in that aspect of her life. There are dogs! Tempest is Ang’s dog, and Otto is Bibi’s dog. There is an assortment of interesting characters contained within these pages, some of whom aren’t who or what they seem.
The voice of this story is so believable … the thoughts that Ang has and some of her statements are so spot-on, lending to her character’s personality. She is just so ‘real,’ so relatable. Seriously, if you like a fast-paced tale with some shady characters, give this one a read. This is my first book by Ms. Brooks and certainly won’t be my last. You will definitely be entertained by the characters she creates.
