I thought this was such an interesting plot! It is filled with mystery, murder, and secrets! This story is told through Ruby’s perspective, and I really enjoyed the backstories that helped to shape the story. The story is centered in France, and I really enjoyed the location as well!
Ruby is a character that I quickly became connect to and invested in. I liked her, and I needed to know what was going to happen. I would have liked to see the story really jump start a bit earlier though. It took quite a few chapters to feel invested, but once I hit that point, I couldn’t put it down! I would recommend this for readers that enjoy spy-type stories!
