When I started reading, Otherwise Engaged I found myself getting sucked into the story. There is a lot going on in the book, but you realize it's all tied together. You start to connect the dots, but you don't see all the dots connecting to till the end. By the end you're like whoa what the heck just happen and you see the puzzle come together. Otherwise Engaged has more a mystery/suspense feel to it, than romance. Yes, there's a little romance, but Benedict and Amity are kind of concern about catching the bad guys. Honestly, I loved the twist and turns in the plot. I thought I had it figured out, but then there's a curve ball.
Honestly, blown away by Otherwise Engaged. I would never in a million years guess on the ending. Overall, a fantastic read. Yes, suspenseful and will keep you guessing. A dash of romance, but not overly done. I think the amount of romance was perfect for the story. So, if you are looking for a bit more suspense/mystery than romance, I would say Otherwise Engaged is your read.
