The book cover is very attractive and eye catchy. The language is easy and lucid with a fine selection of vocabulary. The story line is interesting and thrilling. It keeps you guessing to the very end. Plot is developed in a way that makes you think you have been there before.

The story was in balance for me putting the focus  on the thriller and romance equally. The characters are well developed and feel real and honest. You can get inside their heads, think you understand their motives and then have everything turn upside down. There were a couple of twists that I did not expect, nothing major, but enough to make it more interesting. On one hand I feel like there could have been a little more substance, but on the other I think that it was a good enough amount of information provided and more would have become a bit tedious.

I do recommend the book for those who enjoy romantic thriller, or who might be open to giving the genre a chance. This is a good one.
