It took a while to get into but once I did I loved the story, a man with wounds that had him dealing with the grief of their making, a woman dealing with her own damage in her past finding each other as a convenience and coming to realize they both loved each other All the while a mystery is unfolding behind it all, threatening their lives at all turns It was a very good read and I will probably finish off the series.
