Amazing sweet and sexy tale in the Assassins & Sweethearts series. Liz and Aidan are complete opposites of one another and it's really why they fit together so perfectly! Neither has realized exactly what's missing from their lives until they find one another. Great writing, mystery woven in very well and a romance that leaves a reader sighing with happiness. Highly recommended to readers who love romance, spice and great writing.
I am not one to "drop" into the middle of a series and as this is listed as book #3, I was assured by the author that it is a stand-alone novel that has recurring characters throughout. (It was purchased at an author event.) They weren't kidding! This was a fun, entertaining, and easy read and I plan to go back and purchase the books in this series that I do not have.
