Even when this story feels like th real mystery that eeps me on my toes throughout the entire book.Besides the slow burn and second chance romance that wound its way through he trilog, and made my romance reader heart happy, the fascinating and suspenseful search for answers was the main attraction of this story.From the very beginning the author pretty much served the main suspect on a ilver platter.
