This is the first time I have read this author and found her to be very enjoyable. She reminds me alot of Mary Higgins Clark: twists and turns, several possible characters yet the real killer is not one you would suspect, romantic love without being X-rated. Very enjoyable book!
Excellent book that is full of suspense. There were several references to what I presume was a previous book with these characters, which I had not read, but background information wasn't necessary to enjoy this story.
