    ~I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review~

    I bow down to an author who can make a friendship from college seem like it was from childhood. They way Emma and Grace flow together make it seem like they have known each other their whole lives which is the friendships I love to read about.

    Emma and Grace are very well written. The author reveals a little bit about where they came from without it feeling like it takes away from the overall plot. She makes this seem so effortless

    I received an advance copy of this book for an honest review.

    I’m not much in to writing reviews, as books are such personal choices. Lately everything I’ve read has felt heavy and as if it’s trying too hard. This book was the exact antidote to all my problems.

    A fun and breezy romp through a weekend at a big mansion outside Chicago. It had all the components one would want for a fun summer read, best friends, check, romance, check, a mystery, check, and finally women who are not just accessorie

    Mystery meets romance. I LOVED IT!

    A good mystery book keeps you guessing until the end.. and this one kept me guessing.

    I loved how the story had a lot of characters- it made it more difficult to find out who did it. Each character was given a really good story line- sometimes when reading a book it’s hard to keep track of each character and who they are.. but the author did an awesome job at making it easy to keep up with. I really applaud her for adding so many different story lines and makin

    I really enjoyed this book! There were fun characters to meet and watch develop throughout the story. Both the characters and the plot kept me guessing who would be the robber. Having grown up in Wisconsin, I could relate to many of the references to locations and the fact that Grace was on assignment for the Chicago Tribune. This really is a great read for everyone from teenagers to adults. Highly recommend!

    I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review. While I did like the long lasting friendship between Emma and Grace I found the book to be slow but just entertaining enough for me to keep reading. Even so I did enjoy this book.

    Elizabeth McKenna's love of books reaches back to her childhood, where her tastes ranged from Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys to Stephen King's horror stories. She had never read a romance novel until one Christmas when her sister gave her the latest bestseller by Nora Roberts. She was hooked from page one (actually, she admits it was the first love scene).

    She combined her love of history, romance,
