I enjoy this author very much. If you have never read her, this is a good book to try for your first one. Again, a good writer and storyteller.
I have read most of her books and this is another good one. An interesting plot, romance, and suspense.
It was very good... kept my interest throughout... alot going on all the time!
Took quite a while to get into the book but once I did, it was really good!
This romantic intrigue by one of Mira's top authors (Enemy Within) begins slowly, hampered by an excess of back-story, but the tale of corruption and murder in Atlantic City and Philadelphia's Main Line delivers a punchy, breathless finish. Recovering from a gunshot wound, fearless investigative reporter Kelly Robolo is recuperating at home when she receives threatening letters on the heels of vandalism to her property. Then her best friend Victoria's husband, Chenonceau Casino executive Jonathan Bowman, travels to Miami under mysterious circumstances and is feared dead. Pressed into unwilling sleuthing service, Kelly crosses horns with sexy cop Nick McBride, who, along with the rest of the Philadelphia Police Department, blames Kelly for the accidental shooting of a colleague. Additionally, Nick's still mourning his father, Chenonceau's security chief, whose stabbing death remains unsolved. What's going on at Chenonceau, run by the enigmatic Syd Webber (who may or may not have mob ties), and where's that elusive female impersonator who may have the key to everything that's going on? Heggan dishes up an addictive read; her fans will be thrilled, and she should collect new followers as well.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY REVIEW
First time I read this author but I have already ordered 3 more of her books. I really like the way she keeps you guessing.
People keep disappering or dying around her..first her husband disappears,then a casino boss is murdered ..still kelley must find out what is going on..could she be next? must read...
From the back: Jonathan Bowman, a loving husband and father, has disappeared, and his wife fears the worst. Was the high-ranking casino employee an innocent victim or had he been involved in something illegal and murdered for it?
Overall not a bad book...Not phenomenal, but okay,
There's a split b/w the Points of view (about 40 % the Hero's, and 60% the h's) and I like both main characters, though the h, a little bit more. She's intelligent, persistent, and interesting to boot!
The story starts of pretty good, but there are a few slow bits. The reveal of the Big Bad dumbfounded me! Surprisingly, finding out who the bad guys were was a big surprise :-)
Sorta low in the romance department, (and a bit of a spoiler: there's no big romantic ending) but there's enough to rightfully classify it as romantic suspense.
