I really enjoyed this book. It has some romance, some mystery, and some danger. All things I enjoy in a book. There is very little strong language and actually only 2 hot sex scenes and 1 of the 2 are interrupted.
Pamela Almand has done a great job narrating. She carries the story through very well. She lets you feel the emotions portrayed in the book with her voice. She does a great job with the voices for each character as well.
