My Thoughts

I was excited to read this story because it is the start of a new series. The cover is pretty great and it is even better when you hold the paperback copy. The font just shimmers! All that to say that I went into this book with pretty high expectations and it wasn't my favorite. I really liked the overall plot. I think that arson as murder is more unique and different from a lot of suspense novels especially as it carries through the entire book. So this book is fresh and different from that perspective. The romance side of things is what really took me out of the story. Don't get me wrong, I love romance stories. But for some reason in this story I just had a hard time buying it all. The instant love/attraction and continual reference to how each other looked was just really distracting and didn't seem to flow for me. But that is just my personal opinion. I have read most of Hannon's novels and many I have loved. The mystery side was pretty good and it wasn't as suspenseful as I would have expected but still an intriguing read. I know many will love this book! 

Three Stars.
