Code Red: A Faith Flores Science Mystery, Book Two by Janie Chodosh

Even though I did not read book One I felt the author catches you up with the backstory without being overly repetitive or boring. Faith Flores is an intelligent seventeen year old girl who grew up in Foster homes never knowing her Father. Her drug addict Mother who was murdered in book one never talked about him so Faith always assumed he was just another deadbeat Dad that never had any interest in knowing his daughter.For this she grew up hating a man she never knew.

Nest – Book Review

 

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review in November last year, but I’ve only just got to reading it! Despite being on a short break from blogging, any books I am sent to review I will be posting reviews of as and when I get to reading them. I was excited to read Nest because the concept sounded great, and I wanted to start the year off with an exciting thriller! I had read good and bad reviews, so I just decided I would push them away and make what I wanted out of it.
