OY VEY...emphasis on "romance". Rose uses the romance dance to prop up this book that was weak to me in EVERY other way. I thought the plot, storyline, characters...hmmm, what else?? were incredibly weak. If I didn't have to finish this book for a challenge, I would have pitched it back to the library! If you like the subpar writing of Carla Neggers, you will love Karen Rose! For me..the rest of her books are off my TBR list...life is too short and my TBR list is WAY to long!
