I enjoyed this one! I had actually DNF-ed it in the spring because I wasn’t enjoying it, but that was on audio. I switched to the paperback and liked it so much more. I’ve been wanting to continue the series, so I’m really happy about that.

I thought Saidh and Greer were really cute, and Sands had me guessing who the killer was the entire time until the big reveal. I’m glad it wasn’t who I thought it was, I must say. I wish we had gotten to see a little more of Allen in flashbacks than we get in the book, but I did appreciate the snippets that are included.

What I like about these books is how light and fun they can be, while still being serious and heartfelt. I think Sands can go a little overboard with the dialect at times, but, as someone who has read quite a bit of Robert Burns’ poetry, I know it could be a lot worse. I’m looking forward to picking up Falling for the Highlander very soon. I own the whole series in mass market paperback form, so maybe I’ll be able to get through them all next year!
