    I enjoyed this one--definitely a good 3 1/2 stars. It had a lot more substance to it, I thought, than the other two I've read so far by this author--The Player and The Professional--and for that I've bumped it up to four. The beginning grips you right away with a bit of a surprise--at least I wasn't at all expecting it--and the story continues from there.

    Shelby and Eli are another couple with a history, which I do tend to enjoy. There was a great deal of angst in their tale, due in large part to what happens at the very beginning of the novel and what had happened between the characters a few months earlier, and for the most part it was believable. The side romance between Mavis, Shelby's assistant, and the editor of the local paper, Les, was adorable. The suspense part of the plot--which is clearly there to bring Eli and Shelby closer together--is...just okay. The person behind it was quickly uncovered (as they should have been) and I guess I understand that character's motivation, but it seemed almost as if it would have been the actions of...someone of another gender, maybe? (Trying hard not to give anything away, obviously.) It ended up feeling as if that whole aspect were a bit tacked on, and that some other method could have been used to push the hero and heroine together.

    Overall I did enjoy Shelby and Eli's romance. I'm definitely interested in seeing what else this author will write in the future.

    (I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.)
