Unfortunately, once again I've read to many books to dedicate a full review to each one. This will have to do for now.

*The Gush*

I can’t say enough about this book! This one really took me by surprise because I thought I had it all figured out…and then it threw me a huge curveball. I really didn’t see it coming, and that makes this one of the best mysteries in the whole series. I really enjoyed watching the mystery unfold as much as I enjoyed seeing Tom and Goldy face one of their worse times since their non-wedding ceremony. The personal crises they faced threw their world completely into a tail-spin and watching them cope was heart-breaking and…sad. Goldy may have learned some things at the end of the book, but she has still not learned the one thing she desperately needs to: to trust, completely, and turn her worry and concerns over to Tom so they can share, rather than hoarding the pain and fear to herself and causing so many more problems than if she’d just trust. I realize that Tom’s words to her in the haze of his shooting recalled the Jerk at little too much but she knows Tom is not the Jerk, he’s shown that time and time again.

Is it just me or has the Jerk gotten a taste for the other side of the law now? The last three or so books have shown him dipping his hands into various…less than legal enterprises and I think he’s truly showing his true colors. It’s like he can’t go back to being that fabulous local doctor anymore now that he’s gotten the taste for crime.

This is one book I know I’ll enjoy rereading in this series.

*The Rant*

Very little here, though I have noticed that Arch gains a new interest every book. I do like this interest the best though, fencing is definitely cool.


One of my favorites in a long time (though all of the books are very good), I know I’ll be rereading this particular one until I wear out a least one copy.
