The plot gets a little more complex

At the end of episode three, we were left with Sylvia discovering that her bookshop had been broken into. Gift items had been broken and paintings slashed. Books were strewn everywhere. This store was her livelihood and she couldn't even call her best friend to tell him about it because he was missing.
Jack tries to enlist new clients but instead of getting any, he ends up looking for their missing puppy. Nicole is in her investigative reporter mode and tries to find some background on Quinn. Liam is still trying to deal with the missing money, money people might think he had embezzled.
At the end of this episode it is Dani whose life is in danger. Monday is over and the suspense has heightened. The story is moving along and getting a little more complex. I am hooked.
I requested and received a complimentary egalley of this episode from the publisher for the purpose of this independent and honest review.
I didn't feel like much happened in this episode. I suppose this would be a "slower" part of a book if it were all bound together. Jack's not my favorite character and he played a large role in this episode, so that may have had something to do with it as well. [3.5 stars]
Overall Thoughts So Far (Episodes 1-5)
I'm definitely intrigued by this series. While there are a lot of characters to keep up with and the episodes jump quickly between "scenes," I'm interested to find out what happened to Quinn and am hoping for a few romances to develop too! I'm not sure the serial format is my favorite, but it hasn't deterred me from continuing to read!
At this point, I'm still a little wary of the high price tag. The publisher recently lowered the price to $1.99 per episode (with the first one still a free download), but that's still $24 for the complete book when all is said and done. A little pricey for me, but some may not object.
Kudos to Olivia Newport for a great new story. I look forward to reading the rest of it!
I received a free copy of this book from Barbour Publishing through Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
