her past catches up with her when a man blackmails her and then ends up dead At first, she s afraid the police will think she s the murderer, but as time goes on, she learns she has muchto fear.The book was a little predictable at times, although not in a way that made me want to stop reading, and at the end, I thought there was one thread that didn t get resolved And I realize this book sets up a sequel, but I actually think Jewel s story had one loose thread dangling This was a fun, quick, unchallenging read a thriller with a dash of romance I absolutely like this book This is one of the few from the genre Romantic Thriller, and I was NOT disappointed The beginning was not very credible, but you could actually be aware of the dangers they were in.The verbal sparring between Julie Jones and Sean MacKenzie, and their obvious sexual tension, provides light relief from theserious aspects of the novel Speaking of which, the originality of the cult storyline is really good That was one of the most original plots I have encounter I absolutely like this book This is one of the few from the genre Romantic Thriller, and I was NOT disappointed The beginning was not very credible, but

reporter, which is what I wanna do when I grow up Sean is sarcastic annoying at the surface, but is actually very caring deep down.And the subsequent drama surrounding Julie after sixteen years, sets the novel apart from others of the same genre All in all, this was an epic page turner This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Pretty good book It was nice to know this storyline since it was referred to in the 3rd book It had a good storyline that keeps you reading You really want to know what happens with the characters and how things are going to end up I can t say it was an absolutely fabulous book I liked the 3rd one better, but it was definitely worth reading And when you get to the end, you really have to read the 2nd book, because the complete storyline is left a bit unresolved at the end of the 1st one. now i am hooked This was such a great, easy and creative book i was hooked after the first page The characters were easy to fall in love with and follow, along with the story the author made the mental visions so easy and vivid of the surroundings and the characters actions felt so real.i would highly recommend this author and this book. Oh my God If they licked their lips or said God onetime I was going to burn the book Great writing except for those two things.
