Follow Cleo, who has once again changed her identity, this time to Shanna Nu, an orange moppy-headed homely girl, or so she tries to portray, as she travels to San Francisco seeking employment with the La Tige Detective Agency to search for answers. La Tige, a hard, sloppy man, lacking in social graces manages to worm a way right into her heart. Finally entering adulthood, Cleo realizes who she is inside, and through La Tige and a few other friends, she finds that true affection is forcing her to desperately pursue the answers to the mystery surrounding her birth and biological family. She manages to tie up a few loose ends while unraveling a few more.

My Review 

Cleo had changed her name to Justine when she left America to go to Paris. Her main objective for leaving Paris to return to America was to find some answers about the missing pieces in her life. 

Now that she is back in America, she changes her identity yet again and is now Shanna Nu. She is successful in obtaining a job with an investigative agency and as it so happens the Private Investigator could well have some of the answers she is looking for. 

As the story unravels, things begin to fall into place and Shanna is more intent on obtaining more answers which will hopefully bring more clarity to her quest. I like her strength of character and her determination. I have really enjoyed following Shanna's journey since she was twelve years old and I look forward to being part of the remaining part of her journey. 

This book is suitable for Young Adults who are 16+ and it is advisable to read the first two books before moving on to this one. 

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

For fun she reads, spends time at the beach, travels, and enjoys time with her friends, and family. She is a night-owl known to be a hermit during rainy days, as she has a love for sun, and is mostly found poolside over the hot, humid summer months.
