Different in style to most of her other books but keeps the reader on edge. A kind of cross between the JD Robb series and her other mysteries. I enjoyed it
Yet another excellent read from Nora Roberts with enough twists and turns to keep the story interesting. Well thought out relationships between the main characters provide insight into the differences that upbringing has on an individual. Kept me entertained all weekend.
