About the Author
When she's not creating stories of her own or consuming the stories of others (in all forms) she dabbles in photography, plays MMORPGs with her husband (ranged DPS, sometimes heals) and, despite a tendency toward tech-geekery, collects fountain pen inks and fountain pens in which to use them.

This is deemed a romantic suspense and there is a lot to figure out in this book. On the surface the story is about a woman going to teach in Africa and coming home to Australia abruptly. The family is excited she's back but doesn't know the whole story. Cait/Kitty is hiding the real reason and her hero/love interest Riley is going to find out all the secrets. As a detective it is his intuition that something is off and he won't stop until he helps her solve this mystery. But the story is much deeper and reveals some of the culture and fears that many have about humanitarian workers in foreign unsettled countries and all the politics surrounding these governments and how they play with other countries. In some parts I felt the story went too political and away from the story in effort to explain the whys. If it were a movie the audience would groan at too much talking and not enough action. The build up of the romance took forever and although it fit into place still felt too convenient. I think it would have been stronger story if they focused more of the solving the problem and then what we all knew was inevitable happens. The end comes to a very sharp conclusion after all the detail we're left with what happened and what happens next? Over all a good story a bit over detailed in parts but a good strong female lead.
The ending seemed deliberately rushed. The conflicts (of the plot and the war) were not resolved to my liking. It was just a little disappointing to get to the end; I had the distinct feeling of "that was it?" I hate that in an otherwise good book. I also stayed up late to finish which made it doubly disappointing.
Anyway, if neatly tied strings arent a necessity for you, this book is worth the read!
