I received a free kindle copy of Ugly Young Thing by Jennifer James, published by Thomas & Mercer from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.
I gave this suspense-thriller five stars. The character Miss Bitty is the wonderful but slightly flawed woman who is positive & loving. I'd have liked to have her for an aunt or older woman friend. She is a life saver for Allie who has lost her mother & brother to mental illness. The young woman had a harsh youth but there is hope. A lot of twists & turns kept me guessing.
