I actually liked this book. It was well written and followed a great plot. I must admit that there were some parts they definitely could have taken out of the story as it just seemed to drag on a little at the end but it was a pleasure to read. The MCM, Whit Adair, definitely is someone dream are made from. He’s tall, handsome, a genuinely great guy with an even better personality. The MCF, Elizabeth Shelton, is adorable, nice and a sure damsel in distress.
I thought it was weird how in the story she was the police’s first suspect in the murder of her boss. I know that since she was the last one to see him alive she might be a suspect or in questioning at some point but she has no motive. They didn’t find a sexual relationship between the two, she wouldn’t gain anything major (such as the company) in his death and she has overall great reviews. This, of course, doesn’t take away from the story but it was just something that had come into my mind while reading.
The supporting characters in the story are well thought out. They weren’t flat and dull characters. The siblings of MCM were well crafted, had great personalities and made you laugh. The evil mother (or evil monster as I dubbed her) “played” her bitchy role very well. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who is just looking for a book to curl up with and read quickly, I finished it in prime time.
I’d give this book six stars!
