I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  When you pick up a book, and after reading the first few chapters, you know you're hooked.  Yes, that is what this experience was like for me.  The author created a story so good that I read through it and then immediately had to spread the word. The characters are so real to life and created with care in detail.  The book is laced with humor and I think the author did a fantastic  job of keeping my interest throughout and giving me an ending that was worth picking up this book!
