Eye for an Eye by Stephanie Black
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
However, when illegal drugs turn up at her sister's house, the first person accused is Mallory, and suddenly, she doesn't know who to trust. Mounting evidence of Mallory's guilt is straining the tenuous bond she has just begun to develop with her sister after years of living separately. Desperate to prove her innocence and keep the harmful patterns of the past from hijacking her future, Mallory reaches for Darien's help to discover the truth.
But the truth may be more dangerous than any of them imagine.
My thoughts: I usually prefer a full-length novel because I love to see the characters grow and develop during the course of the book. I was surprised by the development of the characters and the plot.
Mallory is a student who has had her fair share of tragedy due to illegal drug use. Her past and present collide when drugs are found in her sister's home and she is blamed for them. With the help of a new friend, the clues are waiting to be discovered and the real villain revealed.
This book is pretty intense considering its size. I was engaged right from the start and enjoyed the story. It was a wonderful short escape into the world of suspense and fiction.
