What I'm Reading

The Contemporary Romantic Suspense Bacchanalia Continues!

Breakwater (Mira Romantic Suspense) Breakwater by Carla Neggers

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
Apparently this is a book in a series. I wish Negger's website listed them chronologically in order instead of the reverse. Fortunately the filling-in from previous stories was not too bad and the book could be read on its own.

Wasn't a great book but it wasn't very bad either. The setup for the badguys was a bit cliche. It almost had a traditional gothic feel as the cottage and the Breakwater compound were a bit isolated. It's also unclear, to the heroine, who the good guys and the bad guys really are.

The most confounding part of the book was the time factor. It seems people can arrive at the small town in minutes. And yet the drive from Washington, DC to this small town is a lot longer. Odd author choice.

Enjoyable enough for a pleasant afternoon or two. I'll try a couple more in the series to see if they are better.
