I couldn't wait to read book 2 in the series. It started out being good. But, the author kept repeating herself talking about Emily's past marriage and she and Mark getting reconnected after twenty years. I should have counted how many times I read the two of them "reconnecting after twenty years" and Emily not wanting to get involved with a man in a "high risk job" and Mark's thoughts about not "stepping back into a relationship after twenty years had passed". I got really bored with this book right in the middle. I made myself finish it to see what happens. It would have been so much better without the repeats.
From the opening page to the closing scene, Hannon's book is captivating and fast-paced. With twists and turns on every page, the plot keeps you guessing until the end. As the plot approaches its climax, I found I could not put the book down. Hannon's style adds just enough humor and romance to the suspenseful plot. Well-written, dramatic, inspirational, and real. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
