Before long, Rio finds herself lost in a labyrinth of lies, deceit and good intentions gone wrong. Can the two women find a way through their problems? That Gallagher Girl takes us back to the wonderful world of Lissamore with another heart-warming tale filled with a wonderful cast of characters.
Bought this book sometime last month from Bookxcess for RM9-90. The price not bad considering this is a new author for me and I have never read her books before.
I would say I am lucky to have bought this book as it gave me much needed entertainment after reading some depressing books.
Unlike the usual Chick-lit. This book have romance and mystery.
I fell in love with the character Cat as she is so daring. On one side she seems to be vunerable and at others her innocent and guts really flare up my imagination.
What I love about this book is that the characters in it have extreme opposites. Its hard for me to describe.
Anyway, I look forward to reading more books from this author.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars
