"Chava, the mother, is a hoot and Franklin is about as loyal and intelligent as a big dog can be. Chance, the now maybe lover, is attractive and the mystery is indeed mysterious pretty much up until the end. There are enough quirks in the characters and twists in the development of the story to keep things satisfyingly interesting all the way through. Elena Hartwell has conjured up a plausible protagonist and done a good job of plunking her into a setting and plot that nicely suit her."
--Diana Borse for Reviewing the Evidence

For those who enjoy a quick read with a satisfying ending, put this on your shelf!"
--Judith Reveal for the New York Journal of Books
