1) A really gripping mystery plot. I liked this book a lot. It was more of a mystery thriller ( and a very good one at that) than a romance; the romantic elements were there, but more like brushed on, very gently, like the pinch of sugar that makes a spicy chili even tastier. A highly pleasant read!
2) The premise is good, a serial killer attacking men who've cheated on their wives. The writing flowed smoothly, the dialogue was convincing, and the characters were both believable and likable. I also liked that there weren't pornographic sex scenes thrown in just because this was a romance. Overall, I found the book quite a fun read. As a resident of Seattle, I found the setting convincing. Whether or not the details about police work and police departments were accurate, they FELT accurate and were also convincing.
3) This was a great mystery. The detective story was interesting and the investigation flowed nicely, although some aspects, some minor details were lost on Detective Tao. The characters were all interesting and unique and the way fiction was entwined with the very real Ashley Madison scandal was truly interesting. I loved the non-standard relationship the two MCs have and how it builds up throughout the story. Great read, kept me engaged and definitely surprised me with the killer reveal.

1) This was one of the best mysteries I’ve read all year. I loved the plot and the interesting perspective into nature and nurture as Amy Lane explored a protagonist and a villain with the same background becoming very different people. The romantic subplot featuring Jackson and Ellery was nicely woven into the murder mystery. The angst was caused by plausible issues which were dealt with as needed, it never felt artificial. Great, fast paced, and thrilling read.
2) Another lovely book from a outstanding writer. Adventures of Ellery and Jackson - love story at gunpoint.
