There is a lot of family secrets that come to light that puts some of the characters on an emotional rollercoaster. This is the second book of the Queens of the Castle which can be read as a standalone. I look forward to reading about the other Queens storylines. Cassandra H. I voluntarily received an ARC of this book on Netgalley and this review is of my own honest opinion and thoughts.

    This book started out good and then it got very slow for me. The more I read it the better it got. I love the suspense and twists in this book. I am looking forward to reading more book in this series.

    This book really grabbed my attention from the cover of the book to the title of the book to the model for the cover of the book. I knew that this was one of the books that I really wanted to read in the series and I can honestly say that I wasn't disappointed in the least once I started reading the story.

I knew that this was one of the books that I really wanted to read in the series and I can honestly say that I wasn't disappointed in the least once I started reading the story. I was instantly pulled in from the very first chapter and held captive until the final word on the last chapter of the book!!! I really connected with Raye's character; for some reason she really spoke to my spirit and I wanted to know more about her and her journey to end up with the life that she did. Raye doesn't have any intention of ever returning to Shadow Bay, the place where her life changed forever, however with the death of her Aunt Carrie, she is forced to return to the place where her life changed forever and deal with ghosts she rather keep buried. I was intrigued by the relationship between Raye and Dimitri because it was obvious that they had a connection between them stemming from childhood until adulthood but for whatever reason they never had the chance to explore it. I was instantly pulled into the mystery surrounding the death of Raye's Aunt Carrie and mystery of what really happened to her. This book had a little bit of everything, from mystery of an unexpected death, to family drama and actioned packed. It also deals with subject matter where it could be a little bit of a trigger for some readers, however the author did a magnificent job of getting her point across without coming across as preachy or something like that. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series soon!!!

Who plots the murder of his wife, thinking about all the life insurance money he will get while putting on his fake façade by attending church and helping out at church events, makes for a really twisted marriage and a good start to this story. Once we see Raye step into the book, this story gets so twisted. She is trying to make sense of the demise of her Aunt Carrie, and how does she navigate the handsome Dimitri, who she has some history and maybe a future with. As the story progresses and we see all this darkness in the character's world it's hard not to feel consumed by the evil that lives in these characters and their pasts. However, there is a light, and it is much appreciated. You see some glimmers of the good, that would be Reagan. This little boy and all his innocence give this story the light and hope that you need to feel. The way that Reagan and Raye connect is positively the best in this story. Overall, a good read in this series, family dynamics that are original and so messed up it feels like it could be real life, but at the same time you really hope it isn't.

    Queen of North Shore. Once again, author Sierra Kay has brought her brand of a unique take on Grimm’s Fairy Tales with this offering that’s a perfect blend of Cinderella and tech savviness. The drama out of the gate and the humanitarian aspects are exquisite. This is an amazing, exciting and suspenseful addition to the series where brains and beauty work hand in hand with a little romance thrown in. --Naleighna Kai, USA TODAY Bestselling Author
