A Master Plan for Rescue by Janis Cooke Newman

A Master Plan for Rescue: A Novel - Janis Cooke Newman

I started off really loving this book, both for the writing and the story.  But with the first perspective change to another character, it started to feel less compelling.  After the next move away from the main character, it felt like it took a further dive, becoming less believable and less plausible as it went on.  Disappointing, to say the least.
