A twisting, turning, thriller that keeps you guessing. I love a good mystery, and this one stayed one step ahead of you until all was revealed. Our heroine, Mary has been through so much in her lifetime, and like most women she rose above the circumstances and became even stronger. I admired her for that. I love strong females. With the loss of her husband, another door opens, and the opportunity for second chance romance. Just as Mary is getting involved with Jace, the high school sweetheart who once broke her heart, things twist once more. Someone is after not only Mary, but Jace as well.
Strong, understanding and sensitive when he needs to be, Jace has become a man anyone would be happy to have. It went a long way toward making up for his youthful heartbreaking of Mary. I loved his protective, yet respectful manner. It was a throwback to old school romanticism I couldn’t get enough of. Not to mention his love for Mary’s daughter, Faith. That melted me more than anything. Jace’s pension for saying the wrong thing amused me, and rang true to life. I adore a hero who isn’t perfect. It makes the story even more reasonable.
I love mystery and drama, but I wish this had more length to spread out the twists and turns. I think it would have given the reveals more impact. The pace was so fast, at times I felt like I was running a marathon.
