    Princess Fuzzypants here:It is not often a book has such a twist that it takes the reader completely by surprise but this one did it. I was reading an enjoyable but not remarkable story with interesting characters, lots of good backstory and a murder. That is when things get really interesting and the entire tale is turned on its head.

There was an interesting twist toward the end of the story, and the mystery kept me intrigued and wanting to know...
