Will Kit be able to crack the cold case in time to stop another murder being committed? And is Sam Reeves being a concerned citizen trying to help, or is there another more sinister reason he has so much information?
A fascinating start to a new series. I loved that the author made this a crime novel at heart and left the romance open as a possibility for further books in the series I love a good slow burn and it leaves more time for plot development and for the characters to grow.
Kit and Sam both have tragic backstories. The murder of Kit's sister remains a cold case so I am anticipating that it won't stay unsolved for much longer. Kit has a loving foster family and their presence injected a warm feeling of safety and comfort even though terrible things were happening around them. Kit makes a wonderful role model as a strong, intelligent and independent woman.
Sam is a gentle soul and I found his character a refreshing change from the alpha males typically found in romantic suspense. Even though he initially seemed like someone who needed to be looked after he grew in my estimation as the story developed. He conducted his own investigation and was able to act appropriately in a dangerous situation when needed. I'm sure Sam will grow in confidence as he becomes more embroiled in solving cases with Kit. Sam and Kit have an attraction and it will be interesting to watch this pair grow closer as they work together in the future.
