"Fantastic story that's a real page turner. Fast paced, quirky characters, with humour and drama throughout the book. Well deserved 5 stars." ~ D.Y.Danis ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"This is the first book I have read by author Vansant and was pleased with my selection. The story has more twists and turns than an Ozark back road. Shee is such a mysterious protagonist and I had to wonder if Mason was ever going to show his SEAL skills. Both held their character traits well and made an interesting interactive couple to watch. Amy has a great sense of humor which the reader will see immediately in chapter one. I so enjoyed Shee's falling overboard after being shot and seeing tiny turtles. Sorry Shee. I know it hurt. I highly recommend this page turner. Your fingers will have calluses." ~ Zoe J ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
