review 1: Not sure this one is even worth 2 stars. The heroine was annoying and unlikable. She kept pushing away the hero. Some authors can write a story with someone facing a difficult past but still a likable character, i.e. Joss from On Dublin Street. Despite her issues I still liked her. Not so much this heroine.I liked the hero better until he had a TSTL moment and touched and removed evidence!! Really? Someone is trying to kill her and you remove evidence? And then let said victim drive off in the car. The ending was pretty obvious on the guilty party with an added twist. I actually skimmed through the last 40%. I couldn't stomach the heroine anymore. Her parents and boyfriend are killed in a car accident and she's gravely injured but thinks she doesn't need counseling? Thinks... more because her physical therapist tells her no one can walk for her that he is referring to living her life alone? This just wasn't an enjoyable story which is too bad because I really liked the first book. Brandon, the brother who lost his wife is the next boom. Will he be as annoying as this heroine? Hope not.
review 2: This was a feel good read. It is old, soit has a very dated feel to it, which was distracting. I have never read this author before. I was pleasantly surprised. It was well written. The main issues I had with the book had to do with it's age. We've come a long way in 20 years. Such a wimpy, clingy heroine wouldn't fly. So many essential pieces relied on the weaknesses of that period's lack of connectivity. Even the heroine's medical issues were dependent on that period's medical options. I guess the plot was a reworking of Chappaquiddick. A senator in an accident that killed people. Only in this case he was able to cover it up. This may have dated it the most. I will most likely donate it. I can't see myself wanting to reread it. less

Fairly predictable, I guessed the "twist" early on. Still, a quick, enjoyable read.
Pretty predictable but nice, easy read.
Much better than the first one.
