For me, this book is out of the ordinary. I've never read this kind of books before.
It is full of spontaneous suspense, as well as a daring and sassy language that carries a lot of personality.
The author did the characters good. Although I found some similarities between Deputy Ski and Dodge, as well as between Berry and her mother Caroline. However, I liked these similarities.
I adored Dodge's character! It's one of a kind! Actually, what made me go through the whole story and feel a hungry need to finish the book is to discover how Dodge and Caroline fell in love with each other and why they broke apart.
The most romantic line I loved in this book is: "The word kiss was suddenly, wondrously redefined. It became an act of love, an engagement not merely of mouths but of souls."
It made me angry when I learned that Dodge cheated on Caroline! It made me even more angry when I learned that he popped Crystal and lost Caroline and his daughter for nothing! He didn't even solve the case.
One more thing, at first I did not like the way Oren Starks was found. But when I found out later on that it was his twin brother that was found shot in the head, I got it all.
The book was a whole new adventure for me; such an exciting adventure that took place in my head and through my imagination. I would LOVE to read all of Sandra Brown's books!
