    The synopsis makes this sound a bit mystery laden then it is The murder takes place about 23rds of the way in before that the book is pretty much follows typical linesI enjoyed this book I got through it in about 3 hours and even for a romance that's rather uick for me It keeps up a slick pace not slowing down after the intial chapter or so of obligatory flashbacks to how the two met their childhood problems

    Somehow I didn't like it as much as others by this author The murder mystery part was pretty secondary to the plot but that isn't unusual for a romance The hero and heroine had a rough past but they were likeable characters i can't put my finger on anything in particular it just seemed like it could be better I will continue to read other works by this author because this is the first book I haven't really loved
