While the plot itself is interesting and started off well, I did not feel the story as a whole was executed well enough. Grace learns her father's grave is missing. She then enlists the help of an individual she has a "past" with, and the journey to the truth begins with the help of a few friends.
I though the writing style was enough to keep me interested enough to keep reading but that was about it. Even though there is a strong military aspect in this novel, I felt it was a little under-represented. There was this feeling that only just enough was thrown in to give it that vibe.
The majority of the book was spent with the characters' inner monologues. Not necessarily a bad thing, however the mystery was done as an afterthought. After so much of that, when the big reveal occurred I wasn't surprised. I think there should have been a lot more hinting at that reveal as the story progressed.
Overall, it wasn't as thrilling or suspensful as hoped for.

What if everything you held true and dear turned out to be a farce? What if you were forced to face up to the biggest regret of your life? Would you be able to leave your past behind in order to enter your future?
When a visit to her father's grave turns up the gravestone of a stranger, Grace is involuntarily thrown into the middle of a military cover-up that goes further than she could ever imagine. With surprises at every turn, this story contains mystery, suspense, and even a little romance. As Grace struggles to find answers to the questions that plague her, she finds herself reunited with a few close friends from her past. Together, they go on a journey that takes them across the country and back again, delving into their shared past and trying to change the future.
Sandra Edwards has created an engaging, suspenseful thriller that will keep you guessing to the very end. You'll want to read straight through to find out what happened to the General, and what this means for Grace and her friends. The characters, and their relationships with one another, are entertaining, and the secrets between them just may surprise you. Overall, I really enjoyed this story, and the way it ends is very satisfying; just enough closure, with just enough left open for us to think about.
Although I really liked this story, there were a few things that impeded my enjoyment a bit. In my epub version, the font changed sizes in several sections. I only noticed this change about three or four times and it is a minor complaint, but it was a bit confusing, nevertheless. With regards to the writing, I felt some of the descriptions were extraneous and detracted from, rather than added to, the story. At times, it almost felt like the same sentence was written two different ways, when one way would have been more effective. Less is sometimes more. These minor issues, along with a few grammar errors, were not distracting enough to keep me from enjoying the story, but they did catch my attention.
Overall, a very fun read that is as entertaining as it is thrilling. I'm looking forward to exploring more of Sandra Edwards' books!
