Wow, what a phenomenal series! This is a trilogy that grabbed my attention from the very first page and kept it until the very last page of the last book. It is a fast paced and well constructed romantic suspense/thriller that was so good that I was sorry when it ended. Each book focuses on two people with supporting characters in common over the three books. Each book is a stand alone novel, but you will appreciate it so much more if you read them as the author intended. This author was new to me, but I have added her to my must read authors' list. She is a very talented writer and if you haven't yet read anything by her, you are missing out
