I liked this book much more than I expected to. Normally when something is labeled romantic suspense, it tends to focus more on the romance and the mystery often isn’t really a mystery. With this book, the suspense built slowly, sometimes almost too slowly. I think this was intentional, though, to make you care about the characters and what happened to them, then add a clue to the mystery. The thoughts of the main character, Maisey, are scattered – but rightly so. She has had a complete upheaval in her life and she’s reeling. Returning home should have been a comfort to her, but instead, she keeps getting hit with one thing after another.
The wrap up was a little clean, but since this is the first book in a series, I hope that leads to more exploration of that and hopefully it isn’t as “tied up with a neat little bow” as it seems!
