This is the 2nd in the series. Loved the introduction of new characters. From the first page to the last was amazingly done! I couldn't put it down, read in 2 days. Looking forward to the 3rd. 5 stars!!

I enjoyed this series and hope a third book will come out soon so I can find out what happened with Anna. I would totally be a chocolate addict if I was a character in this book.

a good book. i dont know if it was quite as good as the first one but still had some amazing twists and set it up for a 3rd book. i am now awaiting the third book

I was lucky enough to get an advanced reader's copy. I think the book could have been better but I'll let reader's judge that for themselves. The unexpected twists kept me reading till the very end but alas no big finale. Maybe Zevin is saving that for the final book.
