I thought this book was a pretty good mystery. I don't know why Roberts feels that she has to cheapen her novels by putting in so many steamy sex scenes. I hate to sound like a prude, but I feel like she just throws this stuff in there to fill pages. It's like when you watch a really good movie and then they just put throw a sex scene or something in that is just totally unnecessary. I think it is tacky. Otherwise, I liked the book, but I did think it was a little long. I started to get a little antsy for the book to be over. This is the type of book that is entertaining while you are reading it, but it really has no staying power. It will soon be forgotten. 3.5 stars.
