I read some of the other reviews and I think that people sometimes want too much in a book. This story was enjoyable. It was kind of a roller coaster ride of emotions for the reader and the characters in the book. It was also action packed. The lead character was gutsy. The cop was very torn emotionally. But it was a story that you did not want stop reading. You wanted to see how it all turned out. I'm glad there is more to this series. I will read the books that follows.
