I wanted to like this book...truly I tried but about a third of way into it I realized it was probably not going to happen. What little rapport I had developed for the MC's just seemed to evaporate and I was unable to maintain anything other then a glimmer of hope that it would return by the end of the book all I could do was breath a sigh of relief that it was over. Having read several other books by Ms Davitt & Ms Snow I had high expectations going into the story as I truly enjoyed their Laying the Ghost Series and Truthful Exchange so I was anticipating something of that calibre. Unfortunately for me it was not delivered. Will I read other books by this writing team of course I will, one failure does not mean that these two imaginative authors will not enchant me with future offerings.
