A McDonald's Bacon Club Burger of a Book! This book reminded me of a McDonald's bacon club burger. It was a fast, easy read, tasty and satisfying, but ultimately leaving you wishing for something more substantial. It was good fast food.

My friend told me to read one of MHC's books and I got hooked. Laurel-Rain Snow said DECEPTION, SECRETS, & DANGER.
