I was so-so on the first book, Run to Ground, and only gave this one a shot to see if things would get better. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for me and once Kaylee and Hugh were on page together, I had to pass. Things started out alright but I wasn’t really liking Kaylee who came across a bit air-headed and snooty. I understood her reasoning for wanting a better life but overall she spent the whole beginning in a “woe is me” attitude.
My other big problem was Hugh who just like Theo in the last book has no idea how to interact with a scared and traumatized woman on the run. He immediately goes on the defensive, doesn’t believe anything she says, and comes across as aggressive and overbearing.
