I've liked it a lot. Very fast-paced, entertaining but not funny (if you know what I mean), characters with quite a few layers and an unexpected end. I think it worths reading it.

A female psychiatrist, small / average in stature but with a dark secret, who works in a new community, a sort of experimental scientific City called Haven is powered in an unusual method, and also is trying out a different ways of doing things,
This “City” is mistrusted, misunderstood and definitely not the place to be, according to the ordinary local townsfolk who think Havens residents witches, weirdo’s or nutter’s.
OK, OK not all that thrilling you may think?
Not you might think a strong female lead character?
Our leading lady develops very quickly, and once the scene is set, the plot in this unusual story fairly speeds along and all the important characters soon grab the reader’s interest,
The conclusion is perhaps obvious, as is relationship development, but boy the author keeps you on the edge of your seat, wondering just how each problem might be solved in an attempt to save Haven
Oh and the psychiatrist, she’s an expert shot with any kind of gun and tough like old boot leather, yet vulnerable enough to bring out the big brother in us all
Can Dr Alexia Zimmerman save Haven, and herself whilst maintaining her secret?
Well to find out, you will have to read: -
