This is the kind of story that I am so, so glad got told. I don't see the traditional romance publishers houses publishing this story as was written, and this is the very highest praise I could possibly give. It's a story that most likely wouldn't hi ...more

Terrific fourth book in the series, and unlike other series (cough, Stephanie Plum, cough) the heroine is growing. I'm not saying she's perfect (she still loves her whiskeys and her obsessions), but then she'd be boring.

Definitely a great read for th
