Alafair Burke has certainly inherited a great deal of talent from her father!! This mystery was not my favorite of her novels, but it has a surprise ending that redeems it. I love it when I am fooled by the story. Recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby

I highly recommend the audiobook. Xe Sands does a great job with the narration. For most of the book, I enjoyed the story but continued to wait for something exciting to happen. The last several chapters bring more connections to earlier events than I would have imagined. Now I have a ton of questions to wrap my head around.

Perhaps, "Teen Power," would have been a better title. Alternatively, "Not My Ex." Or, "Unresolved," as in how I felt at this novel's conclusion. 2 of 10 stars
