This is book 6 in the series, it actually can be read as a standalone if you haven't read the others yet. I thought the beginning captured you right from the start. After a arguement with her boyfriend Anna storms out the house, gets followed and a accident occurred and later found dead but not from the actual accident. I loved the suspense right off the bat then the story kind if died for me. It didn't continue to flow well for me, there was some mystery and suspense but nothing gripping. I find it really boring when there's a lot of inner conversation within the lead characters head, I never thought that flowed well for me in any books and in this book there's a ton. I wish I could say I loved this book but it was just ok, I won't ruin anything but telling too much. 3-3.5 stars
