My second book by this author.

Unless I'm mistaken, and I could very well be, I see a pattern in this series. First book had 1 point of view, Lisa Collins. Second one, this book here, had two point of views - Lisa Collins and Amy Perry. Third one has three point of views. Lisa Collins, Amy Perry, and Kat Benson.

As always, Chris Paynter is great at building tension. The gradual build-up is wonderful and each one of the characters plays their part, with great intricacy. Enjoyed every minute. I'm really getting to love this sport!
