Dective Robin Daly was jilted at the altar five years ago She doesn t know why but she does know who to blame Nate Houston, the best man, talked her fiance out of marriage minutes before the ceremony Now they are forced to work together to find a deadly arsonist The clock is tickingWhy I picked this book up The first couple pages that the publisher offered online to read were great The conflict between the hero and heroine looked explosive and I couldn t wait to find out why Nate had ruined Robin s wedding.
Why I finished this book It was a short book and I am compulsive about finishing books.
Be Advised The middle and ending of the book don t live up to it s exciting beginning The reason was ho hum and could have been solved years ago with a simple conversation.
