In The Deep End of Fear, Kate has tried to bury the horrible memories associated with the Westbrook estate. After her best friend Ashley drowned on the estate, Kate vowed never to return. But now, twelve years later, she is drawn back towards the house and that fatal icy pond.

My Rating: 4/5
I read and reviewed the first bind-up in this series over two years ago. My link to that review is here.
Like that first book I also felt like the second story was superior to the first one.
In No Time to Tell, I found it hard to connect with any of the characters and I found the whole play/stage acting aspect a bit boring.
I really liked the whole mystery aspect in all these books as I haven't been able to predict the outcome in any of them yet.
The second book The Deep End of Fear is by far my favourite book of the series so far.
I liked all the characters especially Katie, Sam and Patrick. I also thought the plot was alot deeper than any of the previous books.
