***   Interesting Spicy Read With Twists    Review by Rox Burkey

Author Jennifer Hinsman lays the foundation of two girls from separate ends of economic and nurturing family backgrounds. Tancy Collins grows up without both parents in supporting roles. She made her way, starting in her 11th year, developing strong self-reliance skills. Audrey Greer spent her youth pampered in Texas with society parents mapping the lives of their children.  At age 11, her parents threw her a party most brides envy.

The growth comparisons between the two young ladies at various birthdays highlight both good and bad events with good details for readers. Tancy gets her strength from what she overcomes, as well as the support of a sweet neighbor, Angel Smith. Angel is an enigma.

“Arennn’t youuu gonna say hi tooo your mom?” 

Greta managed to slur out to Tancy.

“My mom has been gone for years in a drunken state of existence. If she comes back, I’ll be sure to say hi,” Tancy replied, rolling her eyes as she headed to her room.

“Ahhhh, don’t beee so, sooo grouchy,” Greta said, waving her arm in the air.  “You at neighbors, you stay away from…” She seemed to lose her train of thought.

Audrey gets her strength by observing the way her parents orchestrate her brothers. The marching orders of conduct and behavior deliver high rewards but high costs for a growing girl. Her parents frown upon her independence.

Author Hinsman gets both girls connected at Northwestern University from vastly different starting points. They find romance, Audrey with Robert and Tansy with Gunner. When the story turns to solve murders in Tancy’s neighborhood from fifteen years ago, it strengthens the bond between the girls.

The differences of social class do not rule out the quest for justice. The path toward the truth is dark and fraught with twists and turns that put these girls in danger. Solving this cold case is the most compelling part of this story.

It is an exciting tale for those lovers of suspense. You will find out if these girls can make a lifetime friendship endure the challenges of family, money, greed, and control.
