Great story and held my interest. Very realistic themes: runaway teens, porn industry, sex and drugs, etc. I was a little uncomfortable with the hero being a priest who falls in love with the heroine. Personally, I wish the author had kept the characters honorable, but the romance does seem very realistic and sincere. If you like realistic life experiences and realistic characters, you'll love this book. NOT a sweet romance for those who like to escape real life.
Another great novel by Laurie Breton. A great combination of mystery and romance and just enough suspense to keep it all moving. However, it was not my favorite Breton novel as I didn't like how the main male role was done by a clergyman other than that great read.
I didn't even like this book enough to finish reading it. I'll post the blurb on the back of the book.
Park Square. Mass Ave. The Combat Zone. All home to Boston's sex trade. Home also to runaways and lost souls, home to high rollers and politicians looking for action they can't find anywhere else. It is home, too, for Father Clancy Donovan, who spends his time here trying to get young girls off the street. Bone weary and frustrated, he has lost the joy in his life and has no idea how to get it back.
Divorced three times and not yet thirty-five, Sarah Connolly is trying hard to make a new start when life throws her a curve. Kit, her fifteen-year-old niece, has run away from home, and Sarah will need every ounce of her stubbornness and determination to track her down. Suspecting Kit has disappeared into the Combat Zone, and with no one else to turn to, Sarah appeals to Clancy for help.
The unlikely pair team up to find Kit, but in the process find something else--something powerful, something unexpected and something that will shake them to their core.
I enjoyed reading this good, solid mystery. The characters are wonderfully written and I totally "buy" the romance that happens between the main characters.
Loved it! Great story, fast read.
this was just another ho hum book, same story has been told many many times and this one didn't add anything new unless you consider it a new theme with he priest falling in love, etc.
