Happy Monday bibliophiles!
Excited to share with you today my review for this thoroughly thrilling book from one of my Besties Jennifer’s favorite authors… A fun group read with Jennifer and Kenzie💕💕
A suspenseful and thrilling game of cat and mouse, set in the Big Easy…
This book kept me on the edge of my seat and quickly turning those pages… I stayed in bed this morning long after the alarm went off because I had to finish, I had to find out what happened two Olivia…. this is my first book from Lauren Clark but it definitely will not be my last! A huge thank you to one of my book besties Jennifer for recommending this book and introducing me to this wonderful author! This was a buddy read with Jennifer, Mackenzie, and myself and we were all riveted! We are all also now planning a vacation to New Orleans! I wish!
Olivia is 16 almost 17 and has seen a lot of grief in her young life… not only did she lose her mother, but she also blamed herself for her death… Theo, Olivia‘s father is an up-and-coming chef who has just opened his dream restaurant…. Olivia is certain her life will change after the restaurant opening, but just not the way that it did…. murder, a kidnapping, political goings-on, money,are just a few things behind Olivia’s troubles… Olivia is on the run, but from who? And why? Who do you trust when nobody seems to be telling the truth?
Olivia was such a likable and sympathetic character, I really was rooting for her throughout this book! The city of New Orleans itself really was A character… The ambience, the food, the magic, the food, The history… I really thought all the characters in this book were so well-developed, not all of them likable, but you really got a sense of who they were…. The pace of this book was pure perfection! So many twists and turns and U-turns and detours…. I really had no idea where we were going to ultimately end up, but it was definitely a wild ride! With a satisfying ending! The powdered sugar on my beignets….
Absolutely recommend to anyone who enjoys a twisty compulsive read that will make your heart race….
We were all riveted, so be sure to check out the other Bestie’s reviews!
About the Book
Every day, I wake up certain of only three things:
I am responsible for my mother’s death.
My father has vanished.
Someone wants me dead.
I’m on the run. It’s me against the world.
I cannot let it break me.
When sixteen-year-old Olivia Jacobs and her celebrity chef father are brutally attacked after his French Quarter restaurant opening, the shell-shocked Olivia finds herself on the run on the streets of New Orleans.
Who wants her dead? And why?
