"The Scent of Shadows" [Sign of the Zodiac Series, Book 1] by Vicki Pettersson

My Book Summary : Joanna (Jo) grew up in a rich family but when she was sixteen she was raped and her life completely changed. Now it's her 25th birthday and her life is changing again ...

After going out on a date with a man who tries to kill her (and possibly the room-full of people at the restaurant), she meets up with her first love again and sparks fly. But then she finds out that her father, Xavier, isn't her birth father and because of that he cuts her out of her inheritance. Then the big thing is more people are out to kill her just because of who her birth parents truly are and what Jo will be able to do in the future, which means if she doesn't go into hiding (or something) she will definitely die.

However, it seems that the men after her underestimated her ... now that time has past her 25th birthday .... she is introduced to a whole new world without really knowing where she belongs. And what doesn't help is that even those who seem to be helping her, don't trust her....

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. Okay this book, I almost gave up on it. I got through the first 5-6 chapters and I was bored. But thankfully I skimmed to the good parts and kept reading since I did finally get hooked. However, you have to admit that the beginning is kinda unreal ... it's like she gets everything and nothing at all, which completely ruined it for me. But anyway ... if your like me then I recommend to keep reading it once you start since it does get better!

Book Teaser(s) :
"We all have our disguises," Warren added helpfully.
"What?" I snapped angrily. "And 'Yoda on crack' was the best you could come up with?"
"I see you did nothing about her temperament," Warren muttered.
"Some things even I can't fix." ~ within Chapter 10
