It just gets better and better -- you won't be able to put this set down. The characters just pull you through the stories and you don't want them to end.
Definitely recommended and keepers all.
Personally I don't feel like running from the law is the smart choice, but in Celine's case I couldn't help but cheer her on. Even if she would've waited for the police it wouldn't have mattered. They wouldn't have believed her side of the story. So, for her running was the only choice. But as you find out, you can't run from your past or hide from the future. The past eventually catches up with you. You'll hold your breath during the last sixty pages, but the ending will bring a smile to your face.
