There are a lot of past and future story lines along with the current one. I didn't have a problem with that, but it should be taken into consideration if you're not into that. While the book can be read as a standalone, reading the previous books would make it easier to keep all the characters straight. The romance is your classic case of misunderstanding and lack of communication. Wyatt and Dawn's attraction is sizzling, and once they finally deal with their issues, their love is wonderful. The murders they are investigating add danger and suspense to the story. I enjoyed it and really want to know what happens next with Dawn's brother Talon and Wyatt's sister Rachael. 4.5 stars ARC via NetGalley

Reviewed by Marissa Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book When I read the blurb for this book, I thought it sounded like a good suspense. It turns out it’s pretty much the standard mushy romance. If this is your genre of choice, I think you will be pleased with this book. My main peeve with this book is that there is too much information. I was less than 10% in when I thought I had learned about every character from the previous two books in the series, but more characters kept coming all the way through the end of the book. It’s too much extraneous information. The way I see it, if I’ve read the previous books then I know who these people are so I don’t need a recap. If I haven’t read the books, then who they are and their past doesn’t really matter, does it? The characters were somewhat bland by my standards. There was nothing exciting or mysterious about them, no flaws to make them interesting. There was a past between Dawn and Wyatt which caused some tension but they worked through it easily enough. I would have liked to see more conflict, maybe even some childish behavior, to make it more appealing. The writing itself is good (if a bit too descriptive for my tastes). If you’re a fan of the romantic run-on series, you will probably enjoy this book – though I do suggest you start with the first book in the series and read through.

Very enjoyable read! Small town romantic suspense at it's best. Wyatt and Dawn are great characters and when they are forced to work together to solve the homicides plaguing their small town of Colton, they are forced to finally face their past and deal with all the hurt and pain. This is one that should be high on the tbr list. I recommend it.
