Find this review on Amazon | Goodreads
Dahlia Moss is broke, unemployed and had barely walked away alive from a long-term relationship.
She’s suddenly hired by a complete stranger to accomplish a really weird task. Because of it, she’ll be involved in a mistery that will give her the chance to find herself again.
It was a really interesting story, not what I usually read but It was ok.
I found myself laughing a lot because this Dahlia is so sarcastic and funny.
The whole mistery thing did not get me all that involved but I think, generally speaking, it was fine.
Characters are so one-of-a-kind. I’m not sure who is the weirdest… hmm, must be Charice.
But I pretty much got the idea: you could expect almost anything from Dahlia’s friends.
If you’re a christian reader, you’d like to know there are gay relationships, some bad words and whatnot, in a very slightly way but, you know, it’s there.
There was a turning point that had me out my chair. So unexpected!
Besides that, it was a nice read and that would be all.
However, it’s well-written and I found impressive the whole virtual world created for this novel.
