About the Author:
Deborah Coonts swears she was switched at birth. Coming from a family of homebodies, Deborah is the odd women out, happiest with a passport, a high-limit credit card, her computer, and changing scenery outside her window. Goaded by an insatiable curiosity, she flies airplanes, rides motorcycles, travels the world, and pretends to be more of a badass than she probably is. Deborah is the author of the Lucky O’Toole Vegas Adventure series, a romantic mystery romp through Sin City. Wanna Get Lucky?, the first in the series, was a New York Times Notable Crime Novel and a double RITA ™ Award Finalist. Her contemporary romance inclinations found wing in The Heart of Napa series, set amid the bucolic vineyards of Napa. For thrills and dark mystery, she penned, After Me, an iBooks Best Of and a Nook First choice. And to further flex her writing abilities, Deborah penned the Sam Donovan series, a romance suspense series highlighting her love of flight. Right now, Deborah calls San Francisco home, but, since it’s her we’re talking about, this too can change.

My Take on the Book:
This book pulled me in from the first chapter; and towards the end of the story, the novel switches between different POV's and story-lines. In the beginning there were quite a few minor characters, but as the story went on, you got the drift of the main characters. I ended up giving the book a four star rating, and got an ARC ebook in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:
This is the second book that I've read by Deborah Coonts, and it's difficult to choose which is my favourite one between the two. I have come to love Deborah's writing style. Oh - another thing I forgot to add - I REALLY liked Kellen Wilder.
