Mia had a crazy crush on Rob, just like everyone at her school. Their mom's are best friends so they basically grew up together. When tragedy strikes and he notices her, she feels like it is the time to make the most of it.
Rob, to his credit spends a lot of time with her. She has no idea why and worries about it a lot. Mia does not feel worthy of him - but still he comes back around again and again. Is it even possible to wish a future into happening?
This story was quite wordy. I felt the pace went fast and I felt lost several times while reading. This was more of a coming of age book to me than young adult. I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review.
The teen-age daughter of a Captain in the Illegals Division is found murdered in her bed. The Captain asks for Eve Dallas to find the killer.
This was a good one. Eve has a psychological profile of the murderer but no pictures. He has managed to bypass a Roarke system, which Roarke is not pleased about. Together along with Eve's team at Cop Central they find the glitch in his plans. I like that Eve talks it out and that Roarke and others on the team can fill in where she has not gone in her thoughts which put her on the path to finding the murderer. She knows the why. She just has to find the who. I lost sleep staying up to read this book I was so intrigued by the path Eve took to find her murderer.
I look forward to the next one.
