This book was a great follow up to Pursuit. It was a good stand alone book on its own so I wouldn't call it a sequel, but it dovetailed nicely with the first book.
The book was just a good solid romantic suspense read. Marc and Jess's relationship seemed more realistic in this book and, again, meshed nicely with the book in which they first met. Their relationship began under extremely trying circumstances and, afterward, each of them had baggage to work thru in this book.
A disconcerting note about the book was the odd bit at the end where the youth detention center was being investigated for wrong doing. In the beginning, the two young girls at the heart of the story escape from the center and we are only told that "it is a bad place to be at night". Nothing else is brought out about the center but at the very end of the book, Ms. Robards seems to be tying up a loose end that really didn't exist.
An enjoyable read.
