This is a great book with amazing characters. Helen is a great character and I love the chemistry between her and Bailey.
This book is more romance than mystery but a fantastic read. The villain in this book is one of the most well written villains I have ever read. Eileen is a villain you will love to hate.
Fyfield created a wonderful read that I could not put down. This is one of my favorite books on Fyfields. Its not the first of hers I've read but its her first book and one of her finest.
