Beginning Babble-This one started out so well for me and I am not exactly sure where it went wrong. Towards the middle of the book, I just found myself drifting off into a sea of uninterested. I did try to get back into it but I think it's just not my cuppa.
Heroine: Morgan-I liked her. She was strong and brave. She never really had a moment of being overwhelmed even though she kind of deserved to feel overwhelmed. She was strong and capable and one of the bright spots in the book. She's a heroine in the emphatically not Mary Sue kind of way.
Hero: Jack: I liked him too. He was just as well-drawn as Morgan. He was brave and strong but he also had a gentleness that I really liked. I did have a bit of the same disconnect that I had with Morgan about halfway through the book. He rebounded towards the end but it was a bit too late.
Chemistry-I am a bit flummoxed as to why I had a bit of a disconnect with both Morgan and Jack. The closest I can come to a reason is that I liked them both as individuals but together I just didn't buy it. It was insta-love and unless one or both of them happen to be a paranormal creature, it very rarely works for me. I had moments of really liking them together but for the most part, it was a bit flat.
Ending Babble-This book presents the odd prospect of a romance storyline that did not work for me at all and a mystery and suspense plot that kept me in it. That happens rarely. I don't know if this one would have been a DNF without the suspense plot but I think it would have been a close call.
I do have to say though that while this did not work well for me, my Momma, who is a big reader of romantic suspense, absolutely loved it. And she looked at me like I was crazy when I said it was okay.
