Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

Not sure why the bad reviews because she was true to character as she freely admits she likes to nurture men, not be nurtured. He was a bad guy & remained a bad guy but Dez has heart. Love this series!

For some reason I didn't find this one as entertaining as her other mysteries. Maybe it was the topic. And the characters. I didn't like her exboyfriend and any of the flight attendants. And Desiree's love interest seemed to be super boring.
