This book would have been better written in the style of Mary Higgins Clark. Take the five different viewpoints and weave them together in shorter snippets around the events instead of recovering old ground with each character. However, to give Alicia Rasley credit, each viewpoint does take you closer to the conclusion than the previous one, which creates the plot building effect. I felt the story had climaxed before we got to Theresa or Jackson. Theresa's viewpoint caught my interest at the point where she went in search of her birth family, but it set up a second plot. This would have been better introduced earlier, before the initial storyline, Brian's parentage, was concluded. This made the story somewhat anti-climactic. I also felt like the steamy love scenes could have been cleaned up and the strong cuss words omitted. However realistic, they really added nothing to the story. Overall there were too many threads and not enough binding.
