It's been approximately 17 years since Suzanne Brockmann wrote the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series. This book continues the series and is set approximately 1.5 years after book 11. Several characters from the past books make appearances. I enjoyed this contemporary romance until the "she's better off without me" trope. Luckily, that didn't last too long. My rating: 4 Stars.
