Rating: 3.5 – a good short story about what happens between books 3 and 4

Opinion: I enjoyed this short story. It was nice to know what happens between books 3 and 4. There is a bigger time gap between those books and I was curious about what happens. The book gave some hints but didn’t give the full picture. I liked that this short story was from Thomas’ perspective. The other books were from Audrey Rose’s. This book was more about Audrey’s and Thomas’ relationship than a mystery. I enjoyed this relationship because they were both very respectful towards each other and wanted the best for each other, even if they meant their relationship was over. This is a good short story that adds a little bit more of a behind the scenes look into their relationship. If you’ve liked the series, then add this book to it.
