TERA’S 4 STAR REVIEW
A debut author??? I wouldn’t have guessed. Sholander did a fantastic job. As I was reading, I did not feel this was her first book. It flowed so well. I felt her emotions of her characters were fairly well-written, but that the actual characters still felt a little like strangers. So character building needed a little work, but since there are plans for a second book, they could easily be built up a little more. I do really love a good book regarding addiction. This is definitely one of them and does contain possible triggers. I will most definitely be looking forward to the book following Escaping the Edge.
