Then a murder happens and her life as she knows it is turned upside-down. During all of this a man comes into her life and she has to ask herself “Am I in love?” What happens next?
I thought I knew what to expect from this novel. I was wrong. This has to be THE BEST romantic/suspenseful/mystery novel that I have read to date. The love scenes were perfectly timed with the plot, the suspense kept me turning the pages, and the mystery was superbly developed. Once I started reading it, I could not stop. My favorite character from this novel would have to be Victoria. The way her character changes from the beginning of the story to the end is just wonderful. The settings where each storyline takes place were terrific! This story makes me want to move to Miami. I would very highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something to read now.
I do not want to say too much and give some of the plot away but what I can say is that Victoria Dent has a few character flaws and so does her brother. Can she get past her own flaws and that of her brother’s? Hmmmm. Just when you think you know the answer to the mystery, in comes some more suspects leaving you on the edge of your seat and keeping the pages turning. The heat level is at a 3 and I give this 5 Teacups! Buy this book today!!
