Horribly uninteresting story. Rebecca Brandewyne has written some of my favorite and I guess no one is perfect, but I have to wonder how this even got published. Sorry to be so harsh on it, but I couldn't even finish it because of the boredom. I just didn't care what happened to any of the characters. They could've all died and I would've done an Irish Jig to express my joy at it being over.

I was really surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did, but its actually turned out to be a great book.
A very good read full of mystery and romance without all the sex that seems to be in books today.
