Genre: Mainstream, Multicultural
Readers will be spellbound by Mason’s story, from the beginning to the surprise ending. Though fast-paced, it is well written, and the characters are real, with great depth. Even the secondary characters get their own story, which ties in with the main one.
Lonnie is out for revenge on the man who came close to murdering her — Jordan Gatewood— after she is discovered brutally beaten and scarred physically, mentally and emotionally. Though, at first, she wants to keep it quiet and not go to the police, soon her good friend convinces her that the only way to make things right is to make Jordan pay for what he’s done to her. Her plan starts with finding his secret half-sibling. (ST. MARTIN’S, Jul., 320 pp., $25.99)
