From Publishers Weekly: "...this fastpaced yarn by award-winning Pozzessere combines mystery with sizzling romance. When Miami police officer Danny Huntington is gunned down, the suspects include a cult leader, a crime boss and the husband of a murdered heiress-all involved in cases Danny had been working on. Danny's wife Spencer and his ex-partner and best friend David Delgado begin a search for Danny's killer that leads them from Miami to the mansions of Newport. Soon Spencer's life appears to be in danger and her grandfather, Sly, asks David to act as her bodyguard. Complicating matters is the fiery attraction between Spencer and David that started in high school only to be cooled by her parents' disapproval of David's Cuban heritage. Pozzesserre...adds some nice local detail and shows what it was like to grow up as a Cuban refugee in Florida. The romance, however is more satisfying then the mystery, as the murderer turns out to be incidental. . . Pozzesserre has delivered an enjoyable read." Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.

There was more romance in this book then a mystery/suspense. If you're a fan of romance novels, you'll like this.
