REVIEW Her Other Secret,
Are just trying to not act on sexual feelings I missed seeing their initial draw and spark it feels ike we missed out on some great teasing and poking of the bear Hansen by Tessa to break down his walls Their chemistry and back and forth was good the word ove was brought up far too uickly for the How to Hide Things in Public Places lack of building blocks I was getting from them emotionally some sex scenes felt a bit out of place and while they had good friendship chemistry they didn t heat up the pages as much as I would haveiked The majority of the story focuses on the murder mystery and as such the romance plot suffered some All Hansen knew was that his past had caught up with him in the worst possible way This was mysterythriller than romantic suspense to me the pace of the characters investigating is slower as the reader s mind is supposed to be racing as to who is involved why and for what purposes There is a The Pursuits of Lord Kit Cavanaugh (The Cavanaughs locked room mystery feel to it with the setting being an island currently experiencing storms that is keeping residents from getting off the island or on The connection of the murder victim to Hansen was intriguing and kept the high stakes feel alive but some of the key players felt removed from the story Hansen s family is discussed and his close relationship with his brother but we never meet them and for the murder victim playing such a key role we never got a pov or scene with them before they died The villains also had a removed feeling to them their wrap up and reveal didn t uite have a big impact or feelike a rewarding payoff The Fix Her Up (Hot Hammered last twenty percent had of the romantic suspense feel but the change of pace gave the ending of a rushed feel than crescendo conclusion as characters were found out or clearedThe author has definitely created a place rife with intrigue but I felt a bitost at times how we re just supposed to go along with how Whitaker is both a known place to disappear on and yet you can disappear on it If this is indeed a start to a series the structure of the island how the island is owned by a mysterious rich person but gives the running of it over to a board and some short but poignant introductions to some characters encumbered this story at times but it would make sense as Grounding Grounded Theory laying groundwork for a seriesThere was some missing character development Hansen and Ben had a enjoyable relationship but would haveiked to have seen how it started same with Hansen and Tessa s friendship that their chemistry eventually dictated had to be I also thought Tessa s secret that we don t get ma vie pour un oscar let in on until around the sixty percent mark felt somewhat tagged on not enough time to gain an emotional footing and a resolution that felt partially empty The wordove was used too uickly but Dimon always writes couples that have believable connections and are compelling in any small way to read about I think I caught a hint of something possibly brewing between our The Four Asian Tigers local PD Ben and the extremely mysterious woman named Maddie who answers the department phones remotely Whitaker seemsike it has residents with stories to tell and I m curious enough to show up if there are books
