It's funny how Natalie Barelli has created an anti-heroine, who in all honesty, we shouldn't like because she's a liar and a fake and a murderer yet you're drawn to her anyway. So even though we disagree with Emma's actions, we are still somewhat rooting for her to overcome her bad decisions and make it out on top. It's hard to write a character like that and Baralli does a wonderful job. I will say I enjoyed the first book better but this sequel is good. Can't wait to see more from this author.
