Review by: VR Christensen on Dec. 19, 2011 :
I finish on a sigh. This relationship between the hero and heroine is fraught with emotional and situational complexity. The mystery this time was a personal one, dealing with the last of Nell's demons. My only complaint is that it was rather short. I could have read on for quite a lot longer. But then I like long books. The mystery was secondary, but that was perfectly fine by me. The characters were so richly drawn, it seemed natural that their story would take the spotlight. I'm rather sad to say goodbye to this series. The characters, Will, in particular, will stay with me for some time.

Review by: Estara Swanberg on Aug. 18, 2010 :
This ending to the series satisfied me the most, probably because it scoops up lines of story from the previous books and weaves them skilfully around another personally relevant murder mystery to give Nell Sweeney and Will Hewitt their deserved happy ending.
