She’s definitely not Britain’s answer to Veronica Mars.   "Jess is…the kind of heroine who doesn’t cower..."-- Publishers Weekly "Jess Tennant…defiantly bucks the local social order…Snappy dialogue and Jess’ tenacity make this a page-turner, and readers will thrill to notice some very obvious loose ends that lead into her forthcoming second outing.
