I was pleasantly surprised how much I loved this book. It’s the second in the Lark Morgan series, a standalone but I think reading the first in the series would provide more context – not necessary to understand this story but probably helpful to provide a more complete picture.
To review without spoilers, I’ll say this:
1). McKenzie masterfully integrated the world building into the story (I’m not a fan of when it feels like the reader has to “just get through” the first book or several chapters of world building to get to the good stuff).
2). The characters are well written and have depth, the dialog flows and shows the personalities and relationships of the characters. I love sassy, snarky dialog.
3). There’s just enough mystery to make you want to continue the series without it ending on a cliffhanger.
I was going to give this book 4 stars but as I wrote this review, I have to say I can’t find anything I would change or suggestions to improve it. I would read it again – and probably will after reading the first in the series.

I received an ARC of this book. Thanks to StoryOrigin and self-published author JC McKenzie for the opportunity!
