Title: The Masterkey (Masterful 0.5)
Author: Olivia Wildenstein
Published: October 16, 2017
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Thriller,
The Masterkey, a prequel in the Masterful series, is a quick read, and the perfect place to start to get to know Aster and Ivy Redd and Josh, all main protagonists in either The Masterminds or The Masterpiecers, Books 1 and 2, respectively, in the Masterful series. Even secondary characters, like the twins' mom and Josh's parents, are three-dimensional, and I enjoyed getting to know them.
I enjoyed witnessing Aster and Josh's budding romantic relationship, and it warmed my heart when he stands up for Aster. Though Josh has been there for both Aster and Ivy since childhood, he vows to Aster that no one is going to hurt her anymore, and that he will always protect her.
The Masterkey is filled with suspense and family secrets. The twists in the story will keep you on the edge of your seat and wondering who you can trust. Wildenstein's fantastic writing and complex characters makes this a must-read!

About Olivia Wildenstein
USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.
When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).
Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.
