My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
I am so pleased that this was just as a great as the first book. I enjoyed the new characters, still loved the old characters. Steph now lives in a new city and goes to a new school. The new girl is from a cult and her mother has disappeared, so Steph and ChesireCat help her find her mother. Loved the new mystery/thriller aspects to this story. The cult aspect being brought into this added so much more spice to the novel.

The friendships built in this book was just as strong as the first one. I love the inclusivity of LGBTQIA+ romance in this book and it being part of the plot. I enjoyed the pacing and seeing Steph come full circle.

This is a great read and I would recommend it for sure to those new to the thriller and mystery genres.
