My Thoughts and Opinion:
I just found another author that is now on my “authors to read” list!!!!
Student Bodies is the 2nd book in this series, however, it was the first time I was introduced to this author, and it read easily as a stand alone.
Susan Israel has written a heart pounding book of non stop suspense. I found it to be one of those books where I tried reading faster to keep up with the frantic pace of anticipation in finding out “who done it”. It was a page turner from the first few sentences to the very last word with an ending that was not expected.
I highly recommend this “new to me” author, and I am sure, you will putting her on your “authors to read list. I look forward to her next novel, but in the meantime, I will be catching up with her previous books.
