    Still playing catch-up so another brief review.  Corey - man

    Still playing catch-up so another brief review. 

    Corey - man, gotta feel for a woman who actually witnessed the murder of her mother while still just a child. I can't blame her for being extremely nervous around men in general after that since the killer was never found. She's understandably uncomfortable when she rents the room to Austin, though she does it because one of the few men she does trust asks her to.
    Austin - wow, trying to reintegrate into normal society after years undercover in Mexico trying to infiltrate a gun cartel where literally the wrong word could get him killed. He needed the time he spent with Corey in the small town.

    These two souls needed a lot of healing and I was glad to see they got it over the course of the book. 

    I only gave this 3.5 stars. 

    Here's why: the killer. As far as I could tell, there was no actual hints built in, no red herrings, no nothing, which could have helped anyone figure out who he was (maybe I overlooked them, but I don't remember the character ever being introduced in the book, and they were so careful there was no DNA on any of the notes sent. I dunno - I guess I was hoping for some sort of way that they could have hunted him down, if only they'd known, or that the reader could have figured out who the killer was ahead of the reveal at the end. Maybe I missed something though. It's entirely possible.

    The issue of the killer aside, I really liked the time I spent with Corey and Austin. This was an easy read and a comfortable one too.
