ARC from Netgalley for review!
Poison Promise begins with Gin having to help out her best waitress out of a jam. Gin just didn't realize how bad it was actually going to get after she helped her, especially when one of the cities biggest drug dealers shows up and kills someone. Now Gin, and her sister are having issues, and Gin is trying to figure out if she needs to go after this guy or not.
This one was good, but not one of my favorites. I really felt like it was almost a filler type of book, and that bugs me. I'm also a little annoyed with all the stuff that happened in the end. I really don't want a "repeat" of things that have basically already happened. But I won't say much more about that. Other than that I really did enjoy this book, and getting to see Gin be the Spider in all her glory!
