TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 28 January 2013
Suzanne Brockmann seems to aim to include every cliche of the genre possible in this romantic suspense novel - the naive and misunderstood (and very beautiful) woman who is suspected of a crime; the FBI agent with the tragic past; the bodyguard and the body he is guarding who fall in love; the children who just need love to sort themselves out ........ etc. etc. This is definitely one for fans of the genre but if you do like this sort of book you will find that this is an enjoyable and entertaining read.

The author's skill is in storytelling. The plot is predictable and there are no significant twists but it rattles along at a good pace and has lots of action and interaction between characters. The dialogue is sharp and believable if you imagine that we all express ourselves clearly and with a witty edge. The novel conveys the emotions of the characters well and makes their actions realistic enough if you suspend your disbelief a bit.

This is not great literature and nor is a great suspense novel or a great romance - it is a good enough romantic suspense story with the emphasis on romance but with enough action to keep you engaged. A novel for when you want a quick and undemanding read with no challenging surprises.
