    I gave this three stars because for about the first half of the book I thought this book would never get going and almost stopped reading it But eventually I got caught up in the story I ll probably read future books of the series now that the probable recurring characters have been established.

    Julia s a couple weeks away from turning twenty five She s been living in England for the past five years and has a married boyfriend, David, there We didn t get much background on her The info we got on her ex boyfriend was pointless and did nothing for the story I m not sure what to make of her She was likely motivated to investigate the death of Naomi so she could get her inheritance so than to find out the truth.I like he
