This was a book with potential but the ending was a bit of a damp squib. I wanted there to be a murder, a proper mystery and in the end, nothing. Ruth is supposedly sensible, but she comes across as trying to be independent for independence sake. I adored the hero and felt he could have done a lot better than Ruth.

The set up of this book was really fresh and original with the murder mystery that puts the hero and heroine together. A pleasure all the way through!
