About the Book:
Elizabeth Fitch was under control of her dominating mother. Her mother decided everything for her; education, career, dress, food- everything. She lost her temper and decided to do what she loves to do. She decided to enjoy her life without any rules and then one day she went for shopping, met Julie Masters, colored her hair, created duplicated Driving license for herself and her friend, went to nightclub, got drunk, and kissed a guy. The only thing that had gone wrong that day was, the guy whom she kissed, the guy whom she got lured by was a Russian Mafia, Ilya. She didn’t follow her instincts and accompanied Julie Master to Alex’s (Ilya’s cousin) house. And there she becomes the witness of her friend Julie Masters and Alex’s murder. Her journey of hiding, running and constantly changing her identity started when Two US Marshals- John and Terry died protecting her. She kept her identity hidden but kept taking small revenges from those Russian Mafia.
Abigail Lowery was a freelancer who designed security system. She stayed on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks with advanced security and her guard dog Bert. Brooks Gleason, the local chief of police was in love with Abigail and together they decided to give justice to Julie, John and Terry and destroy Ilya and his gang.
I enjoyed reading this book only because, the romance between Abigail and Brooks was simply amazing. I love the character of Abigail- honest, strong, smart and intelligent. The character of Brooks is funny and loveable. The book started with an amazing thriller but the end was too pretentious. I expected the Mafias to hunt her but nothing of that sort happened, instead they were easily punished and their business was destroyed by the virus made by Abigail which was not so interesting.
Rating for the Book: 2.5/5
