This is a romantic suspense set in the 1930’s. I’m conflicted as to how I feel about it. It was entertaining but not as good as other stories by this author.
I think it was perhaps there were multiple POVs, which took away from Irene and Oliver. Also I wasn’t crazy about the chemistry between Irene and Oliver. One moment he sort of liked her, then later it turned out there’d been sparks flying between them when they met only I don’t recall reading it. Then again it must be due to this is more of a suspense story than it is a romance.
I’d say this is more a 90% suspense and 10% romance. Readers who like to read suspense/crime fiction with Hollywood in it and doesn’t care for romance would probably like this book.
