The book was a good mystery but I was not as impressed about the characters as I have been in some of the other books and it really didn t have that same drawing to the characters as some of her other books, but still a very good read and as it gets closer to the end boy does the pot thicken and Nancy Mcgovern is still a great writer and her books are very entertaining and I love her books and I m looking forward to the next book.
