Review

I read this book at the start of the year, while I was researching the different lines published by Harlequin. I found it to be an engaging, short read. The characters were interesting and smart, and the romance was nicely tempered by the action of the story.

Although the story is of novella-length, I didn’t find that the story was lacking, as can be the case with some novellas where it’s obvious that there isn’t enough storyline for a full-length book. Neither did I find that it needed to be longer. It was the right length for the pace and content of the story.

And my favourite character? Dutch the dog, of course!
