I really enjoyed the book until the very end. There was good character and plot development. Then the story abruptly end in the last 2 pages. I felt like there was no resolution to all open ends but one. It just ended.
This author has great promise but needs to learn how to end a book.
This story is interesting and holds you until you hit a big gap just before the last chapter. The abrupt change from the lapse in the story line makes one look back to see if you missed something. A smoother segue into the conclusion would have gotten a 4 or 5 star rating.
