The book was engaging and kept my attention, and I am looking forward to reading the entire series. My only critique is that the emotions of the main character may not have been written strongly enough. For example, Elisabeth Kerr, the main character, suspects that her husband is unfaithful. When that suspicion is confirmed, her heartache is described. This is perhaps the only area of the book that I felt was a bit on the weak side. That said, this area may have been lightened a bit by the author in order not to allow the book to take a depressing turn. The rest of the book was very descriptive in every way. All in all, it was an excellent book, very good attention to detail -- especially as it pertains to dialogue -- and I am very much looking forward to the next one.
In accordance with the regulations of the FTC, I would like to add that this book was a free gift to me from the publisher in return for my objective review.
