Donna 4 stars

I love that this mystery kept evolving each time I thought I had it figured out. I didn’t warm up to Henry though, he was a little too emotionally needy for me. I liked Win from the start. She was a smart and caring person surrounded by callous people, yet she managed to stay true to herself and pull Henry out of his nonsense. I’m glad that the story wasn’t filled with courtroom stuff, but rather the gathering of information and clues while dodging the killers. It was a nicely told mystery filled with smoking hot romance. I can’t wait for the next book.
