I just love “short” Harlequin stories. They’re just long enough to cram everything in without the whole thing seeming hurried and short enough to finish it elegantly without the plot-dragging devices and predictable turns.

This book is one of such stories. The suspense was nicely done, even had some traces of a thriller in it, and surprise of all surprise I didn’t see that ending coming. The villain was utterly unexpected for me (yeah, you can call me naïve if you want) and the added bonus of a twist made my jaw drop. Ooh, boy. What a marvelously concocted and twisted plot. Wonderfully planned and masterfully executed.

The romance was a bit so-so for me, it could’ve all been resolved with a lengthy conversation instead of dragging the reader through the dirty-laundry machine. But still, it complimented the story and added a little more of an oomph to the twisted, twisted ending.

Oh, I’ll definitely pick this one up (figuratively speaking, since it’s an ebook) again.

Wendy I'm going to look at this one tonight. I love surprises at the end. Your review has my curiosity peaked.

Mojca It wasn't a pleasant surprise, it was more of "ooh, wow, I didn't see that one coming" surprise. Well, it was for me, at least.

Happy reading. ;)

Dina Thanks for reviewing this book, Alathea. I´ve downloaded it from Harlequin a month ago, but I wasn´t convinced it was worth reading. Now I am. :)

Wendy I really enjoyed this book. Thanks for the review that made me read this. And I'm as naive as you, I kept guessing the wrong people.
