"Valerie's past is coming back to haunt her. How will it affect her in solving the case? I thoroughly enjoyed this crime story! You can't help but like the main character, Valerie. E.V. Stephens keeps you guessing until the very end." - Corrine, Amazon customer


"Valerie Benchik has been tormented by an evil event for most of her life. Shortcuts is a great follow-up for Accountable. The main characters have real life flaws that make the reader empathize with them. I enjoyed the twists and surprises that the author added to the characters' past." - Kathy G., Amazon customer
