This book was really very good and held my attention right from the start...the only thing I had a problem with was the (dog) ...that bothered me a little bit
I loved all of the twists and turns in this book; I didn't see the final one coming and I respect an author who can still surprise me. As for her sex scenes, they are few and far between but are always expected (and anticipated) in a Sandra Brown book. Even though he doesn't read like Barbara Rosenblatt, Victor Slezak is excellent.
A good story; a murder to be solved, a man and woman in love, some sex -- what's not to like. Brown likes men; usually her men are kind of psychotic right up till they fall in love with the heroine, but here the man makes more sense than the woman. story keeps moving, a few implausibilities, but niccely done. Slezak is the perfect reader, his women are different from his men in voice, all convincing. Brown has better, but this one is just fine.
The plot was interesting but the constant explicit details of sex was a disappointment.
