Goodreads Summary: James Mycroft has just left for London to investigate a car accident similar to the one that killed his parents seven years ago...without saying goodbye to Rachel Watts, his 'partner in crime'.
Rachel is furious and worried about his strange behaviour - not that Mycroft's ever exactly normal, but London is the scene of so many of his nightmares. So Rachel jumps on a plane to follow him...and lands straight in a whole storm of trouble.
The theft of a copy of Shakespeare's First Folio, the possible murder of a rare books conservator, and the deaths of Mycroft's parents...Can Watts help Mycroft make sense of the three events - or will she lose him forever?
Sparks fly when Watts and Mycroft reunite in this second sophisticated thriller about the teen sleuthing duo.
When I first started reading Every Word, the sequel to Every Breath, I was freaking out. I thought at first that I wasn't getting the same vibe from this book that I did from the first (I absolutely loved the first book), but I was totally wrong. I jumped the gun and shouldn't have worried. Every Word turned out to be freaking fantastic. Sorry this review isn't going to be very long or detailed, but I was so absorbed in the book while reading I barely took any notes.
I love Rachel and Mycroft and their chemistry. I love their uniqueness. Most importantly, I love how they work together when trying to solve a problem. The minor characters are pretty good too, but Mycroft and Rachel steal the show.
As for the plot this time around... Was it unbelievable at times like the first one? Sure. Was it awesome? Heck yes! There was a scene with a very descriptive autopsy, let's just say those images won't be leaving me for a while. I didn't even know they did all those things during one. It was interesting. Anyway, the story was a little slow at first (not a bad slow just a little slow), but that changed half way through the book and then it became so intense that I couldn't put it down!
Every Word was so very good. Luckily us fans got a good strong sequel. We all know that doesn't always happen in trilogies. I think all those fans of the first book out there will not be disappointed. If you are not excited already, although I am sure you are, get excited! I know I can't wait for the next book!
