My Review:Stars: 4.5
While reading this book I felt like I was on a major scavenger hunt along with Aurora and Donovan. Trying to decode little hints to always figure out what the mystery is and be one step ahead in the game.
Gideon is Aurora's older brother and Jeremy is Donovan's younger brother. They have both been missing for two years and noone knew exactly what happened to them. The cops told the families that the guys must be dead and pretty much closed the investigation and left it at that. After a key to the cedar box appeared in Aurora's desk she unlocked it and found her Gideon's journal.
Aurora is known for her puzzle solving skills and thinks that Gideon has left her hints and clues in the journal to tell her exactly what happened to them. She doesn't understand some of the things written and involves Donovan who volunteers himself to join her on this journey. Little did either one of them know they would get in deeper than they expected.
This book will definitely keep you on your toes and guessing until the very end exactly what happened to the guys and whether or not they are truely still alive. You find yourself trying to figure it out with Aurora and Donovan too. You get pulled into their journey. Everything isn't butterflies and rainbows though. They come across people they should be able to trust but turn out to be bad. They have to learn who they can and can't trust. What information can be shared with their families?
Overall this was an excellent read! I don't usually read mysteries but it had enough of a romance aspect that I fell in love with the story! The author did an amazing job taking us on this journey!
