This is the second book I've read by JoAnn Ross and I was as blown away by this one as the first I read. This book really grabs ahold of your attention and keeps the mystery going until the very end. Great book!
Quick, fast-paced read. Leaned more on the romance than the suspense and took a couple fun turns along the way. JoAnn Ross has become one of my favorite authors over the past year. Nick and Kate are perfect for each other.
