The second book I've read by Ms. Hill, I most say that I really like this book. It was hard for me to put down. A true page turner. I hope there is a sequel to this one.”

Jake and Eva Kelly present the perfect façade from the outside looking in. Both have promising careers, live comfortably, but there are two sides to ever coin.

Jake and Eva Kelly are happily married--happily married con artists, that is. They've sailed along with no problems, until one day they end up conning the wrong couple.

This is another one that I wish had been more romance and less thriller. Once I got over that part though, I did enjoy reading their antics on the cruise ship, while they tried to out-con the people after them.

About a couple working on the "last con" which of course turns into more than they bargain for. Not only does this married couple have to make a change in their life, but they learn to deal with dark secrets and fears of their pastime. A very good book!
