Actually closer to 3.5 stars.
As I’ve come to expect from Nora Roberts this was a well written, straightforward read with interesting, varied well-rounded characters, who are easy to connect with. The Mall shooting was tastefully handled – still horrific and tense of course – but the violence was kept as brief as possible, taking place over less than two chapters. There are some pretty emotional scenes, that had me tearing up, especially in Part 1, so keep the tissues handy.

Based on the first half of the novel I was leaning more towards 4-4.5, but after the half-way point there was way too much emphasis on the character’s lives, family drama, and day-to-day routine for my liking. The final confrontation with the killer was long overdue, as I slogged through chapter after chapter waiting for him/her to finally make an appearance. Little time was spent on the romance, and it was one of those relationships where they meet and fall instantly in love, which I’m not a fan of. The crime portion was well done, as were the police procedural parts, even though the killer was almost super human in what they managed to get away with, and the body count was ridiculously high. Because the story encompasses so many genres there’s pretty much something for everyone, and I can see it appealing to a wide range of audience. A good read, but I’ve read better books by this author.
