While the plot was good there's some stereotyping of characters. Beautiful heroine? Check. Handsome, well-to-do hero? Check. Smarmy, sweaty boss of heroine? Check. Obnoxious secretary foil? Check. The differences come with being widowed mother, an FBI agent, fraud and blackmail. While an enjoyable idea the author loses marks for all together too many f-bombs coming in everyday conversations. It distracts from the characters and interferes with the reader who tries to avoid and rephrase. While it isn't technically a cliffhanger the author leaves some things unresolved to write another novel.

Thank you so much for a lovely story. Being a southern girl I ejoyed your gentleman. I however didn't enjoy the many curse words that did little to enhance the story line. Mac was such a wonderful gentle man that it detracted from my love of him. However no one is perfect. Ms. Celia was however the most wonderful and perfect family member. Her use of the term 'baby' was better used than when Mac used it. Every one needs a Ms. Celia, and a glass of sweet tea! With all of that said I am looking forward to reading book two! I think that Polly will be a wonderful challenge for Dr. King.

The mystery is simplistic. The pacing of the story is erratic & inconsistent. The action bits read more like afterthoughts than they do deliberate sequences. The slower bits are often too slow-- bogged down in superfluous detail and repetition of facts. I wasn't really drawn to any of the characters. They felt depthless and left me feeling ambivalent towards them. The very anticlimactic climax is a cliffhanger in name only.

The bad language wasn't an issue for me as it seemed to be for for other reviewers. I didn't think there was a lot of it. My biggest problem was that I didn't/couldn't relate to any of the characters and the storyline was super farfetched. I did like Miss Celia and Mimi, they felt the most genuine. I thought having a female widow and a sterile male was unique and interesting. I'd also be lying if I said I didn't shed some tears. Ultimately, I just really didn't care for anything about this book and ended up skimming a majority of it.

I really like some aspects of this story, but not enough to read the next. Possibly because I HATE cliff hangers. Also because its boring and i dont like weak heroines.
