I do not like stories that flip back and forth among characters, especially those stories written in first person by one of the characters. However, Calhoun does a bang-up job with this novel, even if it is written from several different viewpoints.
This begins as a sassy story and sassy heroine who has a huge nervousness with the gun her mother gave her. The bookstore and the building now belong to her, but she'd rather have her mother back alive. The characters are developed well, but the storyline drags just a little. I think if the whole thing was written in first person, that would not be noticed at all. I love the peek into Sloane's thought processses!
The ending is full of tension and nail-biting suspense. I was on the edge of my seat! It is a worthy read :) 4 out of 5 stars!
