Award-winning author Sandra Orchard pulls out all the stops in this breakneck and breathtaking conclusion to the Port Aster series. Fans will not be disappointed by the surprises they find inside.
What an ending!!! Wow! I have been blessed to follow this series from beginning to end and I highly recommend anyone interested to start with number one and read all the way through! Flowing from one book to the next Sandra's writing is awesome! She adds humor and joy even in suspenseful moments! I absolutely LOVE Kate! She's the kind of character I ALWAYS love to read about because even when she's a "victim" she's never truly a victim because she NEVER stops fighting! Even when she's backed into corner with no visible way of escape she doesn't stop fighting!!! Paranoia abounds in this final addition and not just on the characters part! LOL! I wasn't sure who was a good guy or a bad guy until everything's explained in the very end! Twist after twist, explosions, secrets, lies, and more! Filled with suspense and touches of romance! I LOVE reading these books not just because of the great stories, but also because of all of the things I've learned from each of them, and of course the addition of recipes always makes me happy! ;) Everything comes together and all secrets are revealed in this finale of the Port Aster Secrets series! I highly recommend this book and this series as a whole! And I can not WAIT for what Sandra has in store for us next! :)
