I really liked it Loved that they worked out their misunderstanding at the beginning of the book I hate reading books were you have to suffer through 1 2 the book or 3 4 of it with misunderstandings that could have easily been cleared up if they had just talked to each other Hate when authors do that Not much of an imagination when they do Loved that the H h became closer as the book went on They loved each other, were honest, you didn t spend the whole book hearing either the H or h saying I m just gonna sleep with them, but we can t have a future together That is SO OVERDONE It s not to say that there weren t problems that they had to weed through I loved that the heroine had a backbone of steal She didn t let anyone run over her She stood up for her man, cut people off at the knees.I liked the hero I liked that the author just made him a regular guy Not some rich, powerful person He was very sweet to the heroine, but not in a polished way I normally don t read books were the hero has been with two sisters The only reason this worked for me was because the other sister was bad, everyone knew it The hero couldn t stand her, no one made excuses for her.Wish I could find books like this one. One of Holt s longer tales that is really a well written story of two people whose lives came together for just two days, and then were cruelly upended by lies and disceit Now, six years later, they meet once again, and they are still overshadowed by two murders, a town that prefers the status quo to truth, and a woman the heroine who WILL NOT allow the deaths of her sister and father to go unsolved It is quite different from many of Holt s writings but showcases her evident talent and skill as a storyteller A very, very good read.
