I absolutely loved Christina McDonald's first novel, and am really looking forward to this new one. I could physically feel the suspense in this novel as I read the excerpt. The tense and edgy feeling that Eva has as she walks down the street, and then later, when she wakes up in the hospital. Her overwhelming need to leave.
Then, backtrack 25 years to the meeting of Laura and Eva, as well as Eva's mom and Rose. You just know that there is trouble brewing there - and something is going to happen to set the stage for Eva's neuroses later in life.
Plus there is a murder to solve!!! So much intrigue packed into a few short pages - this is going to be an amazing book!
