Suprised by so many 5 stars reviews, enjoyable read
on March 18, 2012
I picked up this book over the weekend and decided to give it a try. I enjoyed the dynamics between the couple as well as the suspense aspect. When reading romantic suspense I personally need something that isn't too frightening. This was just the right blend for me. When I signed on to write this review I expected to see quite a few 3 and 4 star reviews of this book and was suprised to see all 5 stars thus far. When I was about 1/3 through the book I actually almost put the book down. I think the book picked up in the latter half but in the beginning I thought the story line was a bit ridiculous. The main character gets a phone call that her sister is missing and she needs to go to Seattle. I was floored by her initial reaction which seemed to be like it was a pain for her to make the trip. Then she gets on a plane and has a mild flirtation with someone across the aisle. So I'm thinking "your sister is missing and you are even thinking of romance????" Then it got a little worse (in my own opinion) when she arrives in Seattle happens to run into the same man the next day and agrees to go out to dinner with him. Was I the only one bothered that her sister has been missing for days and she's off to dinner? Not romantic to me at all. I will say something compelled me to keep reading and from this point in the story on I enjoyed the book and the main character seemed to redeem herself in my eyes. Again, this is just my opinion, take it for what it is. The author is a good writer and the story is well written.
