A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
As the conclusion to the Port Astor Secrets series, I enjoyed this mystery novel. Having read this series in succession, I would definitely recommend reading the books in order. I appreciated the consistency of the characters throughout the series but also the connection I felt to the main characters, having followed them for a time. With an interesting storyline revolving plants, a one-sided romance, broken family dynamics and a good spine-chilling, this book was definitely worth the time. I look forward to the next series, hopefully soon.
