I almost returned this book because it started off so slow but the pace and storyline eventually sped up and I ended up enjoying it.

The story was engaging and enjoyable but at times the narration was akin to nails drug across a chalkboard. Amy's soft spoken, monotone voice did not do this book any justice.
In the end the story was worth putting up with the poor narration.

This book is terrible. I stopped reading it. The dialogue and situations are improbable at best. it's hard to believe a woman fleeing an abusive relationship with her 2 children would move them into a house with a man she didn't know, but it's ridiculous that within a week the abused woman was so horny for the strange man that she wanted to move because she couldn't control her libido. all without having received any kind of counselling for the abuse. the author did nothing to build any kind of romance between them, apart from them both noticing how hot the others body is. which made the main characters look like horny high schoolers. her mother's intuition needs tuning up!
phrases such as "erotic as hell" and grammar such as "broken piece of glass" are just awkward. Don't waste your time, there are better books out there.
I cannot relate with the characters in this novel on a personal level and the writing does not draw me into empathise with them either. I persevered for 20 chapters and realised that I don't care about their daily lives, the intrigue is not intriguing and the back story is being dragged out for so long that, I no longer care how anything is resolved.
There appears to be 3 plot lines, but not 1 or them can hold my interest. I'm new to this author, but have read 3 other books of hers - the Scarlett Falls series - which I thoroughly enjoyed. I find it hard to believe that they were penned by the same person. Those other characters were far stronger, approachable and endearing.
Fortunately for me, I was able to listen to this because of my Kindle Unlimited subscription, so I don't feel cheated in any way. I will try other books by this author, but I doubt that I will continue with this series.
A great read,a can’t put down story,with entwined crimes I’m looking forward to another book by this author.
This was good but it would have been great if there was more focus on the mystery thriller aspect and tone down the romance ..romance is good but when its over done, well????
