There are a lot of past and future story lines along with the current one. I didn't have a problem with that, but it should be taken into consideration if you're not into that. While the book can be read as a standalone, reading the previous books would make it easier to keep all the characters straight. The romance is your classic case of misunderstanding and lack of communication. Wyatt and Dawn's attraction is sizzling, and once they finally deal with their issues, their love is wonderful. The murders they are investigating add danger and suspense to the story. I enjoyed it and really want to know what happens next with Dawn's brother Talon and Wyatt's sister Rachael.
