I absolutely loved the main character Everly and could clearly see her in my mind's eye. The murder mystery story and Everly's budding romance with Mitch intertwined throughout which was a great touch, and I found this one very hard to put down. The romance is emotionally descriptive without being slushy or too graphic, and I found myself rooting for Everly and Mitch to get together, and delighted when they seemed to be heading in that direction. I've since downloaded the rest of the Everly Gray series and some other work by this author. Great stuff!
