Having had some disappointing experiences with free and reduced price Amazon Kindle books, I had come to expect the worst rather than the best, so this book has restored my faith in the reduced cost offerings. There were a few minor editing issues but definitely not of the quantity to detract from the reading experience. That is something important to me as a reader though, so I do notice and take it into account. That said, the author has definitely shown skill in this craft, and I'm so happy to find a new author in this format who knows how to actually write! As for the book's setting, I have spent some time in Colorado, so I'm always happy when a book takes me back there.
This book was worth more than the $1.99 price I paid, for sure, and I'll be anxious to see what Mrs. Bell comes up for us next!
There were a few problems for me, though. First, there were a great number of secondary, even stock characters who would appear just in time to give one of the main characters information.
For example, the district attorney's wife appears once in the book, simply to give Joe information that really had no true baring on the story. This was ok, but after a while it seemed as if nearly all the small conflicts the characters faced was resolved this way (ex-wife showing up to cause jealousy for the heroine then the two women meet and the problem resolves itself in a simple paragraph, a recent divorcee caused jealousy for the heroine, the heroine's boss caused jealousy for the hero, as did the basketball coach, and another character, etc.)
Toward the end of the book, it seemed as if the conflicts and situations they faced were repetitive. Most toward the end could have been combined into larger conflicts, or even eliminated all together for better pacing.
All in all, I give this book a solid 3. The plot was great and the characters were very likable. The premise of an ex-con and the cop who arrested her was very intriguing. However, the author needs to work a bit on pacing and strong conflict in her next books.
I'm intrigued to see what she comes out with next, and will definitely buy!

I didn't expect much from this book. I think because I had purchased it so cheaply on Amazon. In the past, that has usually meant a book of low quality. Read morePublished 10 months ago by CC Thomas
