I liked the story and it picked up a lot toward the end. The whodoneit was obvious, but that's how it is in a lot of stories. Anyway, I like Roarke, but I don't love him just yet. He just came across as your average male character. A little pushy at times as well, but good for her. He didn't make me swoon like I had hoped, but there are plenty more books for me to fall in love with him. I'm looking forward to the next one.
