This is the first book by this author I have read, it is also the first book of the Elkridge series in which I think I have found my new home for a while. I just loved the characters, the town, and most of all the story we were taken on during this wonderful book. Blinded is a very heartwarming tale with a suspenseful and life-affirming story that will have you sucked right in from the first chapter. This book was almost impossible to put down when I got to the end of one chapter I just had to keep reading it was that good. I was given an ARC copy and this is my voluntarily writing an honest review. This is a second chance story with a small town mystery that will have you falling in love with the characters in this small town of Elkridge.
