This is my first book by the Catherine Tinley and I really enjoyed it, there is a good flow throughout the book that held my attention, the characters are well depicted with unique traits at time a little shocking.

Needless to say my favourite character is Mary, she is witty, outspoken and unapologetic to be herself, it is hard to not root for her.
