She can run, but she can never escape her past...
Sophie was abandoned at birth and grew up neglected and abused. Her only friends were computers, until she met Cole Hunter. He became her everything: brother, protector, and partner in crime.
She believed that nothing could ever tear them apart. Until it did.
Years later, when news of Cole's murder reaches Sophie, she completely snaps. She will tear down heaven and earth to find his killer, even enlisting the help of her ex-military ex-boyfriend.
But the more she gets involved with the investigation, the more she puts herself at risk...
When Cole was nine years old, he watched his whole family burn to death in a house fire. He became obsessed with architecture, and rebuilding his life.
Sophie became his secret weapon. Protecting her was his purpose. But Sophie was damaged right from the start, and it was easy to scare her away.
He always feared that he wouldn't be able to protect her from her enemies, or from herself...
Sophie was abandoned by birth. She grew up in the foster care system where she met Cole. Sophie gets the news that Cole has been murdered. She goes to see what happened. As the story progresses we follow Sophie through the past and the present as she tries to figure out what happened to Cole. Along the way she runs into some old enemies. Will she be able to find out what happen to Cole and stay safe?
In an Oyster Shell – It was a provocative action-packed read that will keep the reader on their toes.
The Pearls – From the start of the story, the character development is really strong. You get a sense of Sophie right away. Withdrawn, independent and a little bit lost. She comes unhinged when her “brother” from the foster care system is allegedly murdered. You get a strong sense of their relationship which makes for the intrigue of the story.
The plot was interesting it was full of twists. You don’t really know what is going on. The story will keep you guessing. It’s really fun to follow Sophie through the past and present with unexpected events unfolding.
I am pulled into the series. I have already bought book 2. Looking forward to seeing the story unfold some more.
The Sand – The story was slightly disjointed at times.
