A fantastic Romantic Suspense. Jennifer Burrows did a great job of providing the reader with a balance between the Suspense/Mystery and Romance. Her characters are well developed and read like real people. The relationship unfolded naturally and didn't feel like it was forced. A Smooth moving plot with a mystery that kept me flipping pages to the very end.
