3-1/2 stars. Plenty of angst. Kept my interest throughout and there was a nice bit of vulnerability on the hero's part that was nice to read. The heroine was spunky but misguided but she did the best she could with the info she had. I do sometimes like stories where the heroine is physically weak as she was here.
