Very good! This book was perfect to start my year as i really loved it. It's a second chance romance if you want ( i'm not fond of those but in this case no cheating was involved only misunderstanding or something like that) but more importantly a romance suspense and i LOVE those! really when it's cold or raining outside staying in front of the fire immersed in a good investigation is a real pleasure. In this case it's even ...more

I’m sent prolly a dozen books to read each month. I don’t accept many, but I had read a previous book by Herbert, and I liked her style. However, when I opened the kindle file & found it was a Harlequin, I grimaced. I am not a sappy-romance fan. I remember my mom’s shelves & shelves of Harlequin books. I didn’t understand how she could read 2 of ...more

Danger lurked around the corner, just far out enough to make me wonder, who is the killer? And what secrets does the Tedder family keep?
It was an amazing book, and I really love the new direction that Mrs. Herbert took with this Intrigue novel. Mystery is defiantly a strong suit for Debbie! Usually I can tell who the killer is right away in books like this, but the ending was a big surprise.
I cannot ...more

What will happen between them.
Suspense is amazing in this book. My first book by Debbie Herbert. I look ...more
Good plot with an interesting variety of characters. The setting was very different from most stories in the genre, and I did enjoy reading about a different area of the country. The main reason I didn't rate it give stars were numerous grammatical errors in the book, including missing words and misuse of words. I'd love to see this story edited and re-released with the errors fixed. I will be reading the next book in the series, though, as the plot kept me ...more
