The mystery part was a bit lame. I had guessed how it would end not even half way into the book. No big reveal there.
I did like Eve and Roarke. I didn't fall in love with him, but I liked him well enough. I'll probably read the second book, but if I'm still not in love with the series I'll stop. There's over 40 books in this series now and I have too many books I want to read to waste time on such a long series if I'm not madly in love with it. We'll see how I feel after the second one.
