Book Review: See How They Run by Ally Carter @OfficiallyAlly

Secrets! Secrets! What is happening on Embassy Row now? In See How They Run Grace is still suffering from guilt after the end of the first book, All Fall Down. And she's also determined to find out more about her mother's death.

Her family, of course, just wants to shelter her. Jamie, her brother returns from West Point and Grace knows its only because he's worried about her. He brings a friend along who also has ties to this country, Adria. She is also surprised when her Russian friend, Alexei returns because he is supposed to be back in Russia.

When Jamie's friend is found dead, fingers are pointed and Grace once again feels like she must be the one to find out what happened and save the day.  As she digs for answers, she finds out more about her mother's past and how it contributed to her death.The revelation at the end of See How They Run will have you clamoring for the next book.

I continue to be thoroughly entertained with The Embassy Row series. The characters are interesting and are changing. Some of it is a bit far-fetched, and I'm not sure Grace shouldn't be receiving more psychological help, but if you suspend some disbelief these stories are quick and full of action and intrigue.

I think See How They Run could work as a stand alone, but you'll get much more out of it if you start at the beginning with All Fall Down. Ally Carter is very popular in my library, and I'll be sure to add this series for those fans and hopefully some new ones.
