My rating: 3 of 5 stars
For a two-week romance the pacing was painfully slow. Until about 300 pages in, the suspense was pretty light too. When the pace increased, the book was engrossing and gripping, but then it slowed to a crawl for the last 50 pages or so. The characters were well drawn and interesting, but the pacing was such that I almost gave up reading before it began to move. I’m glad I hung in there. I will try Karen Rose again as this was her debut. If the snippet that I read of her second book is any indication, the author improves her pacing dramatically. She also won the RITA award for romantic suspense in 2005 for her novel [simpleazon-link asin=”0446614475″ locale=”us”]I’m Watching You (Warner Forever)[/simpleazon-link] [simpleazon-image align=”center” asin=”0446614475″ locale=”us” height=”160″ src=”http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31HWs75jy9L._SL160_.jpg” width=”99″].
