There were a lot of peripheral characters in this book and, especially early on, I had a little trouble keeping everyone straight in my head. The mystery (and murder) happens fast, then it’s a roller coaster ride to the end.

I enjoyed the writing style and following the clues. The romance between Harper and Finn was steamy, but slow percolating – I appreciated that because I’ve read too many insta-love romances lately, it seems. Sweet Dreams Baby was a suspenseful read that kept me interested an

This was a wonderful read! I loved the problem-solving, detective feel to it, but also the gripping thriller side to it, making it a very exciting and interesting.

I really liked the main character, and felt that the author created a brilliant lead, and surrounded that character with secondary characters that created a very well-rounded story. The author made the our leading lady very strong, intelligent and full of personality, which I loved.

The pace was excellent and really helped create a sto

I don't know where to start. What starts out as a family funeral for Harper's mother quickly goes downhill with the murder of her father. What ensues definately takes the reader on a Rollercoaster ride of epic proportions. Definately a recommended read.

Wow, what a great story! Really enjoyed the characters. It had several real surprises! Just when you thought you knew what was happening, a twist popped up, and took your breath away!

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Well, I love me a good suspense, thriller, romance filled story. This book had it all!

The overall premise of the story seemed intriguing and had me interested. Once I started reading the story, I was absolutely blown away. The story was incredible. It was full of twists and turns and was chilling at times. It had a sweet little romance side of the story as well. It was a well rounded, well written, incredible read.

Get the laundry going. The crock pot on. A glass of sweet tea and a bottle of wine. Then crack it open. This one is hard to put down! Get ready for a 5 star read!

From the first few pages this reader was totally absorbed and engaged.

I loved the fast paced ride.

I loved the characters. They swept in and captured my attention.
The sparks that fly between Harper and Finn had me wanting to have a 'sit down' with them from time to time. They needed a little nudge toward each other.

This was a fun twis
