Ohmygosh! Lori Wick has done it again. And to think that I almost passed over this series. I've read three of her first four series' and am SHOCKED beyond belief to admit that this is by FAR her best yet!!!
How anybody could give this a negative rating is beyond me. Her books are long and have several plot lines. It usually takes me awhile to get through her books, but I COULD NOT put this book down! I cried several times and my heart warmed at the love Dallas had for Smokey!!! The mystery was on the edge of your seat stuff - I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. Just when you take a sigh of relief that it's over, the mystery thickens and takes you into a whole different direction!!!
I cracked up over Smoky's fencing. I CRIED at what happened to her in the prison. I was so excited at the romance.
That's another thing - in so many of her books, the "REAL" romance starts at the end of the book (like it the Hawk and the Jewel), but in this one, it happened at around the first quarter of the book. I enjoyed all the shared innocent intimacies the couple shared!
I, of course, would love to know with whats-her-name (Dallas' old girlfriend). Maybe it said so in the epilogue and I just missed it trying to hurry and get it finished...
READ THIS BOOK!!! IT IS simply WONDERFUL!!!
