What a great book to read since I don't typically read murder/mystery books. The twists and turns in this book kept me wanting to read it constantly - of course I couldn't put it down the closer to the end that I got. Great book!

Initially I was skeptical of this book because most of the reviews quoted were from romance reviewers. However, since PBS thiller readers seem to like her I thought I'd give this book a try.

I am not sure why this book is marketed as a romantic thriller, because there is no more romance than in your average Sanford Prey novel, which is to say not much. Instead this is an enjoyable, though fairly ordinary, suspense/thriller novel. Would make a good beach or airplane read since it could be finished in a long day.

I recently discovered this author and have been reading everything of hers. This series I especially liked as it continues along the same story line w/the same characters. She does a great job of weaving it all together down to the last page of the last book in this series.

This is the first book I've read by this author. I will definitely read more. Very talented writer. This is the first in a series of 4 books. I am waiting on the other 3!!! Keeps you going until the end and a very good "who done it".

Excellent book by a new to me author. Kept me guessing right till the end and didn't have any boring parts at all. It is the first in the series, and I can't wait to read the others.

This is the way a suspense/thriller/mystery should be written!

Sticks with the storyline, easy to read, doesn't have a lot of rubbish descriptions inserted as page fillers so makes for a 'just right' length of book.

Characters are easy to like, there is no 'romance' to this story (thank goodness!), just a very good suspense

I have spent years reading all the old favorites, Sandford, Patterson, Kellerman, Coben, Connelly, etc. I had not read Mariah Stewart because I though she wrote "Romance" books and I like thrillers! Well let me say if you like suspense and thrillers you will love Mariah. There may be a slight romantic angle but they have far more suspense than my old favorites. Her books are great and I will be reading all of them I can find.
