I almost returned this book despite just downloading it from the library. I am very close to being burned out on Stephanie Laurens even though I do enjoy her books. However, this was a nice change. The story focused on the main characters with elements of intrigue on the periphery. This is by no means her more in-depth romantic suspense novel that she is usually known for. It's a nice light story with elements of intrigue but we know from the get-go who the bad guys are and in fact, I felt it added to the enjoyment of the book as I patiently read on to see how the story unfolded. The only thing I will say is that the story appeared to end abruptly. I guess there is nothing to add since all the loose ends were tied but it just felt like where's the rest of the end.
