This book follows "Nights Landing" and preceeds "Dark Sky." And, yes, it is quite confusing if you haven't read the first book. Neggers writes well, but there's lots of characters and loosely woven plots which leads to confusion and not a lot of satisfaction at the end. Maggie and Rob don't seem to have enough time with each other to believably fall in love. It is a quick read.

Great sequel to 'Night's Landing' Hours after Nick Janssen's arrest in the Netherlands, Rob Dunnemore is in Europe and hot on the trail of a killer. All the old characters are back in full force, with a few new ones to add mystery.

This novel was alright, but felt as if it were written a little choppy. It was an easy read, however the plot was a little boring for me, as were the characters. I felt Maggie and Rob didn't have enough chemistry and I wasn't too bought into their romance. I loved the setting of the novel and the first few chapters, but I really lost most interest about 1/3 of the way through.

You find out who done it, a little early in the story. But it was still a great book

This book was hard get in to. An overload of characters with backstories made me feel like I was missing something through the whole thing. This is the first book I've read by this author, but maybe if I had read her others (Night's Landing and Cold Ridge) first, this book wouldn't have been so confusing.

Fun and a little hard work. That's all Tess Haviland had in mind when she purchased the run-down nineteenth-century carriage house on Boston's North Shore. A weekend project that would get her away from her busy career as a graphic designer in downtown Boston.

Tess never anticipated getting involved with the local residents--especially not her neighbors: architect Andrew Thorne, his six-year-old motherless daughter, Dolly, or Dolly's "babysitter." Harley Beckett, the girl's white-haired, ponytailed, reclusive uncle. And Tess never imagined what it would be like to own a house rumored to be haunted by one of Andrew's ancestors.

But then Tess discovers a skeleton in the dirt cellar--human remains that suddenly go missing. And she begins to ask questions about the history of her house ... and the wealthy, charismatic man who planned to renovate it, until he disappeared a year before. Questions a desperate killer will do anything to silence before the truth exposes that someone got away with murder.
