Expected fluff happily, a bit deeper Forced polygamy, parole officer, ex cons, crooked big shots cops and the bonus of a personality plus kitty Typical plot predictability saved by a couple surprises.
Polygamy, illegal drugs, a 17yr old runaway girl being forced by her church to become a third wife, and a guy set up by his rich fiance and her her father to coverup their illegal side business A very interesting read that reminded me a lot of the things we are seeing in the news theses days If you like intrigue you will like this book.
Creswell has written a really interesting novel here full of twists and turns and some very interesting characters.The story follows Anna, a parole officer who has escaped a previous life as part of a polygamous religious group She is settled in her new life until her new paroled, Joe McKenzie, a convicted embezzler, drags Anna into his life and back to her past.There were points in this novel where I thought the plot was going to be really predictable However Creswell throws little twists right [...]
This is the story of Anna, whose mother arranged a marriage for her when she was 17, to her step uncle who belonged to a branch of the Morman s who still have multiple wives She conceived on her wedding night, as well as stole his car and managed to disappear The story takes up 14 years later when she is a successful parole officer doing an intake on a new client whose pastt collides with her world A fascinating story.
Polygamy and a parole officer This book was not what I expected, and I don t usually read this type of book, but this one was really good and recommended to me Hard to believe this type of world exists, in America no less, but I m sure to some extent this was pretty realistic Really a good book.
Wat was het lastig om doorheen te komen in het begin Liep niet lekker.
I honestly thought this book would be better than it was There was something missing in this book, that I could not put my finger on.The book was just ok.
Interestingly twisted tale of a parole officer who finds her past intwined with that of one of her parolees Good, but Jasmine Cresswell can do better.
Very good book Lots of action and suspense Several surprising twists Highly recommend this book.
