I absolutely LOVED this book. This book is not only a murder mystery but is funny, quirky and heart warming all in one. It really did keep me on the edge of my seat but not in a nail biting chilling way and all the characters are wonderfully written in such a fun loving way. I highly recommend this book to any fellow cozy murder mystery lover... you won't be disappointed.
I had requested and received audiobook version of this book for free from the publisher, in exchange for an unbiased review.

Abby Stein is young, smart, and obedient. But even obedient girls can make a mistake once in a while. While most girls learn a lesson and move on, Abby isn't allowed to do that. When a poor choice at a party leaves Abby pregnant and alone, her overly religious parents and church community will make her life so miserable that she's forced to consider suicide as her only way out. With nowhere else to turn, Abby makes a desperate call from the parking lot of New Hope Christian Church.

I enjoyed book one so much I was excited for book two and wasn’t disappointed! I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. I love how the author tells Abby’s story and how it bounces back between Abby and the pastor! I highly recommend this book even if you have’t read the first in the series because it definitely work as a stand alone! I love how the lord is using this author to write such emotional books about everyday trials that we can relate to! Thank you!

I enjoyed this new YA series so much that I went right to book two when this one finished. I just had to know what was next. Not only did I fall in love with the main characters but love how each character has a storyline that is written in and enjoyed following them all. A lot of times when a book jumps around from character to character I get lost... but the between the way it is written and the narrator... LOVED IT!

I had trouble getting into the book at first but stuck with it and so glad I did! It just kept getting better and better the whole time leaving me covered in goose bumps.

I don't want to give anything away for the next reader so I'll just say what an awesome storyline and great characters. The narrator was a huge key into bringing each character to life giving them their own unique voice and emotions (that I felt). Goose bumps up, hair standing on end, gasping at times and laughing at other times... such a wonderful thriller.

I wasn't sure I liked this audiobook when I first started listening but the more I listened the more and more I found myself pulled in. Such a GREAT understanding on several different yet relatable issues surrounding depression. Being a military spouse and dealing with close family members that suffer from depression I found myself relating to this book on so many levels. I couldn't believe this book found me. I enjoyed every moment of it once I was pulled in and find myself drifting off thinking about it from time to time. I'm not one to listen to or read a book more than once (maybe twice) but I'm keeping this one to do just that. It has a special tug at my heart.

For two long terrifying years, Sakhi Borren, and her beloved brother Reve, are headed to live at The Complex. An enclosed metal and concrete manufactured world on the barren planet Lorn, the Complex is some government's version of a good idea. Its sole purpose is to "heal the rifts between warring races" - a joke if ever Sakhi heard one. If she and her brother can survive to the end, they'll leave, far richer. In the meantime, all they can look forward to is co-existing with criminals and the scumbags known as Metas.

I'm not big on futuristic scifi books and movies but I can say this book was really, really entertaining. I love the hidden meanings that have a lot to do with things that are going on in our world today. Acceptance and getting along with everyone regardless of who they are or where they come from. The Narrator is perfect for this book giving the characters their voice and bringing it to life.

Marla finds herself in yet another murder mystery and I can't help but enjoy every second of it. If you've read the other two books in the series then you already know the author and her characters will not disappoint. If you haven't already read or listened to one of the books in the series don't worry you will still enjoy this book and want to read or listen to the others.
