This book so needs an author and an editor. Just how many times can you remind your readers that the protagonist, Emma, is an ex-nun turned FBI agent and whose family are long standing Art Investigators with offices in an obscure town in Maine and in Dublin Ireland, and that the lusty male lead, Colin, is also an FBI agent? Did I fail tomention that the leads are FBI agents? and that she's an ex-nun turned FBI agent and that her family runs an Art investigating service? Did I also fail to mention that the lead man is an FBI agent, an under cover agent no less, how shocking, who has just had a near death experience, but that no one in his home town knows what he does for a living, except that everyone in his home town seems to know what he does for a living. And did I mention that Emma is also an FBI agent, AND a former nun, just in case you hadn't figured that out yet. And that she tells everyone she meets that she is in fact an FBI agent? ... Yawn.Sorry, I never thought I'd say this about a book, usually if I hate a book I just stop reading it, but I wanted to know what made this author a New York Times best-selling author, so I hoped it would get better, that there had to be something stupendous, instead I learned that Emma is a former nun now turned FBI agent and Colin's an undercover FBI agent, over and over and over again, almost as if months and months went by between submissions of chapters such that the editor forgot that we know this information already and that we don't need to have it hammered into our brains, The long and short of it for me, this book is complete and absolute rubbish. Not even pure escapism. No stars. Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan are back and as good as they were in the first book in this series by Carla Neggers. I love these two together. It is fun watching them fight to have a relationship when at times it seems all the odds are against them. Both are FBI agents working for the same team but both bring lots of baggage to the relationship. They respect each other and have a 'fierce physical attraction' to one another but they let their jobs get in the way at times. I have read a lot of Ms. Neggers' books over the years and some have been better than others. I would have to say this series is turning into my favorite books by her. I look forward to continuing to read this series and would highly recommend it!

Tentative, but good. The characters have some growing to do.

Not a bad plot, but too talky for my taste.
