There weren't any surprises, which is a shame, as the writer shows she has the right tools at hand.
I'm going to have to listen to the Stone Creek novel by the same author before I can make a fair decision on whether or not to add Ms. Novark to my favorites list.
Will I listen to this one again? No, I don't think so, and that's my benchmark for romance novels.
