Reader's Favorite - 5-star review

H.R. Kemp takes us on a complex and intriguing journey. It is a complex story, requiring effort from the reader, but this is well-rewarded as the twists and turns untangle toward its conclusion. Laura is a worthy heroine who will stop at nothing to protect her family, and the mature-aged protagonist is a welcome addition to the genre. Kemp demonstrates that pleasure, romance, excitement, and living are not just the domain of the young... races to a satisfying and surprising conclusion. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a thriller with depth."
