I know this is romantic suspense but there was way too much sex. It almost completely eclipsed the murder investigation. I liked Nick and Kate but there was just something missing in the relationship; it almost seemed forced. This is the second book I've read by Ms. Ross and I wasn't thrilled with the first one either. Maybe I'll have to try one of the flat-out romance novels I own and see if she does a better job there...at least that way I won't be expecting anything other than sex.
