While I thought the mystery of the story was very good--I cannot stand the two boyfriend scenario at all. IMHO it distracted from the mystery itself. I have to say that I may not read another if the author continues with the two man system--she did this in her other series and to me it was the worst thing about it. Maybe part of it is that I don't like Noah (the old flame) and that the potential new flame was hardly in this story. Pick one and move forward; I'm not sure what benefit to the story line the two man angle has other than to annoy this reader. :-)
