Helpful Score: 2
I was fairly disappointed with the first book in this series; enough that I probably won't continue reading the others. Character development seemed to take a backseat romance scenes. I had a hard time identifying and sympathizing with the main character, and the fairly predictable ending made me happy that I read so quickly. Time to move on to a different series.
Angie Amalfi was more the damsel in distress than heroine. Which got on my nerves! I was really disappointed. I guess I was expecting something more along the lines of Diane Mott Davidson or Joanne Fluke.
