If you like Deliah Devilin voodoo stories, then this is for you. Note is is not a hot sexy romance/mystery . This author is not for me, but maybe for ..Show More »you. I am not looking for a deep emotional listen as I find them too dark. This author had a good outline/mystery, just not enough romance in this book for me. Yes, #2 develops the budding romance, but I do not like long drawn out series. if you like long emotional build up in your stories, then this is a good listen. I think # 1&2 are an auto buy togather if you want to see how our couple hints at coming together. JD Robb #1 &2 are as hot as a series can get, and now over 32 books! This author wants in on that action, but develops the romance in this book just a tiny bit. The cost was so little that I purchased #1&2 at the same time.
