This story was a different set up than what I expected. But I liked that and the way that it was written. True, it was a slower paced book but not in a way that dragged. Nick and Kara's life experience were as different as night and day, in an interesting way. Nick was used to one nighters with women and being footloose and fancy free, in Hawaii. Still he was a man who was loyal to his friends and good as a co-business owner. He had a code of honor that he lived by and he lifted his share of the work when it came to his business. Things get totally turned upside down with one phone call from Kara Lynn O'Conner. I'm trying to inform but tread lightly here because I want other readers to get to read the story like I did. It was like one thread was pulled, and the story lines begin to unravel in ways that keep the reader's attention. Mystery after mystery begins to come out. And not just Nick's mystery but the mystery of what happened to Kara to make her so skittish at times. She is a confident, competent loving woman but terror would strike her when she was placed in certain situations. That is all I am going to say about that. Bradley was such a good part of the story and there were also Kara's Aunt Maggie and other secondary people who made for a great family feel to parts of the book. Be prepared for a few more twists and turns and other challenges being worked through. It also had its moments of sadness, where you could feel your emotions being pulled at.
It also sounds like the next book with Nick's business partner, Billy is going to be a good one too.
There is a short look into that book in the back of this one. I just might have to put it on my TBR list.
