"This is the first time I’ve read a serial and I didn’t know what to expect. I was pulled into the story right away. The pacing was cleverly crafted so that while the action had the pages turning, there was enough back story to keep you rooted in the plot."~ Melissa Barker-Simpson, Author of the Morgan and Fairchild Series"Scattergood's writing style is simple and straightforward and her characters very believable."~ Grant Leishman, Author of Tortured Minds"One of the best things about the series are the characters, who are human and sympathetic.
