Hardly got started and I put it down. The lead female is the kind of character I'm sick of....a dark, painful past makes her a bitch who can't accept help from anyone. The author alludes to something that is too horrific to remember. Anyway, I got this for $0.25 at the library sale table so don't feel too bad about giving up on it. The other two in the series were there too so I'll check out the next one. Generally, Allison Brennan's books get pretty good ratings so there must be something there.
