U don t eally know your neighbors Overall it was a great jump into this genre and any book that has me sneaking chapters at work has to be something I d ead again And I definitely will because I m eager to see if I can pick up on the breadcrumbs next time Huge thanks to Avon Books for providing the arc free of charge If you can get past the absurd set up ll probably
like this one than I did I couldn t let gothis one than I did I couldn let go the fact that the heroine called the hero the local handyman she has a surly elationship with about a disabled looking yacht off the coast and not oh I don t know the Coast Guard or the local law Further proof I could never be a omance heroine I think logicallyI also never understood what the hero did to earn such devotional trust among the secondary characters Frankly he looks guilty as hell And yet everyone harps on about how much they trust him Um why exactly I get that they keep saying it but WHY are they saying it How did he manage to build these
