Publisher's Summary

For the past three years, Grace Blakely has been desperate to find out the truth about her mother's murder. She thought it would bring her peace. She thought it would lead her to answers. She thought she could put the past to rest.

But the truth has only made her a target.

And the past?

The only way to put the past to rest is for Grace to kill it once and for all.

On Embassy Row, power can make you a victor or a victim; love can turn you into a fool or a fugitive; and family can lead you forward or bury you deep. Trust is a luxury. Death is a very real threat. And a girl like Grace must be very careful about which secrets she brings to light.

Not As Confused

Okay, book 2 did answer some of my questions but the whole thing was still such a puzzle. It’s just as dramatic as the first book but I guess that’s to be expected in YA. Sometimes I got the feeling I was reading the main character’s nightmare. Like I was going to get to the end and she was going to wake up to find it all has just been a bad dream. Since I was left on a cliffhanger once again I am now going to start on the 3rd book and hope that everything finally gets resolved.

Headline

It was very good ..however the character voices were a little odd,overall her pauses and sense of reading made the story sound extremely vivid and real

Ok story....

I like the story line. I don't care for the crazy repeat of craziness in her head... I really do not like this narrator at all! All the men sound like they are trying to poo. It's very very annoying when she try's to do a males voice... I'm just about to get rid of this book for that reason.
