Lark realizes that she still loves Luke and would prefer he not be here, but heeds his advice especially when he mentions that her stalker Dr. William Quest escaped jail. The assumption made by Luke and the police is that Quest saw Lark with her close friend Danny so he tried to kill him as the deranged man believes that the singer is his wife. As Luke protects Lark from the psychopath Quest and from her angry ex husband Cody, their love blossoms. However, she expects he will leave once she is safe and so fears giving him her heart again.
Though the final twist may seem OUT OF THE BLUE, readers will enjoy this second chance at love romantic suspense thriller. The story line is action-packed but driven by Lark who courageously contends in differing ways with the five men impacting her life. Fans will appreciate the middle book of the Stewart sisters' trilogy (see OUT OF THE MIST for the first novel).
Lark & Luke had never really stopped loving each other through all the years. It was reassuring that Luke was able to admit this to himself early on. Their interaction was great as were their feelings for each other.
However, there were a few things that bothered me: Luke never really gave Lark solid reasons for deserting her, twice. Not to minimize his military service but, the constant references to Luke going "off to war to liberate a nation" was a bit over the top. A little interaction with Ian and Lilly, the two main characters from the previous book could have easily been included and still kept this as a stand alone story
Still, I had this book pegged for a five. Until the last 20 or so pages which was when the book fell flat. The resolution of the pivotal secondary characters was wrapped up in a total of about 6 pages, with no real explanation of the motives that drove them. One minute the two of them were there, the next gone and forgotten. But the kicker was Lucas and Lark's relationship winding up in, not kidding here, one page! I kept checking to see if some pages had been left out of my copy!
Fortunately though, my dissatisfaction WAS in the very end of the book which won't stop me from reading the last in the trilogy "Out of the Storm".
