I was about 1/2 way through this book when I realized that I wasn't enjoying it. The plot line kept my attention just enough to finish it so I could find out "who-done-it." I found the writing simplistic and the character development lacking. I doubt that I was the intended audience for this one. I'll have to be more discerning about which free Kindle books I read.

This was a great romantic thriller. Totally unpredictable and definitely very well written. The author does an excellent job of developing the heroine from an introverted widow to a vivacious crime-solving diva. Well, Betts is not a diva, but her partner Candy is. Yet together the two manage to sift through the maze of clues to find their best friend's murderer. The dialogue is spot on, with witty conversations taking place between Candy, Betts, and her romantic interest, Lucian. The prose in th ...more

Arlene Kay takes us on a fast-paced journey through the fascinating but greed-filled world of Boston bio-tech. The reluctant heroine is smart, but insecure, as she doggedly tries to discover the murderer of her best friend. Motives abound and everyone's a suspect, even the brilliant, wealthy and attractive man who is gradually capturing her heart. The style is sassy, the dialog witty and there's a turn of a phrase on every page that will make you smile.

i thought the story was good to read, but the writing was sometimes alittle "cliche" phrases such as "my headache buzzing like an angry bee" just came across as quite juvenile, but all in all it was a decent quick read, just perfect length for a bus ride or a long soak in the tub

Intricate plotting woven together with characters that come to life. Loved the Boston settings. Elizabeth Buckley and her sidekick are two of my favorites. The authors makes the story jump off the pages. It is a definite page turner. Not to be missed.
