This is a couple hours book at best but the author is talented.
This is a bit of drama/mystery/romance held in a very good balance, with strong likable characters. The story does NOT move forward on stupid, a pet peeve of mine. So it is an enjoyable get away book to read that leaves you happy and wanting to read about the brothers who are single, what their stories will be. Plus, wanting to know more about the town and inhabitants and what will happen.
I’ve noticed this author seems to be an under 200 pages writer, but it is not leaving you wanting for missing story. The books I’ve read of her so far feel very complete, I think she leaves out the excessive emotional conflict that others relish, so the read is quicker but I think more satisfying and that is saying a lot as I usually gear towards 400-ish page books, epic style. Sex scenes aren’t too over the top and still easy to skip, AZ focuses on building the relationship -vs- porn action, again, I am much appreciative of this as it is against where modern books are heading.
I would recommend and I will read this again. Awaiting the next in series to come out.
