~ What did you think of it? (your general response, what you liked or didn't like, what you learned, anything else you want to share about it): It was another page-turning story by Ms. Gardiner. The plot line in this book was a little less interesting than her first two books with Jo Beckett, but was still a good read. There were less dramatic twists, which I was pleased about, and instead the twists were completely unexpected.
~ Which page was your favorite? Share why: In this book, President McFarland (President of the US) is from Montana. About dang time!
~ If the story was made into a movie, who would you cast as the main characters? Dr. Beckett is the same as in previous reviews. President McFarland is probably Bill Pullman, and for crazy Tasia I think of Heidi Montag.
~ Share a quote that was worth reading twice. Explain why: "Her guardian angel shot her a salute and said, Good luck with that, honey. You're on your own." I just thought it was funny.
