This is the first Christie Craig book I've read, but it won't be the last! I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a book so much! I hadn't expected to, to be honest, as the first chapter came across a bit too masculine for my tastes...more of a rugged private eye type thriller, but I hung in there and was hooked before I had reached chapter 2.
Cali is a school teacher and gets herself involved with the wrong man while her mind is busy trying to deal with her mum's cancer and then her death. When the toe-rag she's involved with tries to hurt her, she calls the police and in comes the sexy but troubled Brit Lowell. I won't add any spoilers, but the chemistry between these two is smoking, almost as much as her departed but not ready to pass over mother, who hangs around to protect her daughter. Gripping plot and fantastic characters. Will definitely be buying more from this author.
