My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I would like to thank Severn House via Net Galley for my copy.
I love Anna Jacobs, but this book felt a little lacking to me. Its a story that I have read similar before and similar events, nothing new in it really. Its a gentle book that you can curl up with and not have to really 'get into' so if you are looking for an easy kind of read, I would say, yep, this is your book.
I have loved every other book from this author I have read so far from over the years even before actively reviewing seriously, but this one, for me.....ran a little on the edge of me wanting to finish it instead of hanging on its pages.
When Gabrielle Newman throws her cheating husband out, Stu cares more about the money than the break-up, getting more than his fair share from their house sale. An unexpected bequest offers Gabrielle a new start and she tries to leave the past behind, heading north with Dan Monahan, the private investigator sent to find her.
Meanwhile, Stu has got entangled with organized crime in Eastern Europe and is desperate to pay his gambling debts. Gabrielle needs Dan's help to protect herself and her inheritance. She's very attracted to Dan - but dare she trust any man again?
Then Stu tracks down his ex-wife and Gabrielle discovers just what the man she once loved is capable of, as her life is threatened. Can she and Dan find a way to stop Stu and his ruthless new friends?
