I'd never heard of this author before, and the cover kept calling to me, so I figured I'd give it a chance. Frankly, I was a little disappointed with it.
Both the suspense and romance angles didn't have much going for them. In fact, things culminated rather quickly, and it didn't feel like the couple had courted at all! The suspense angle was never fully resolved, and May's status was never fully confirmed either.
The characters were interesting, and easy to identify with. Some of the situations were actually quite humorous! It actually helped keep the story moving and made it feel that it was moving faster than it was.
All in all, I'd like to give the author and series another try before calling it quits on either of them.
