Daniele has always had a thing for Scott since she was a teenager but she never thought that Scott felt the same till he kissed her couple of months ago on New years eve. Scott is very conflicted but is finding it very difficult to stay away from Daniele even when he knows that it won’t end well. They have always had a teasing and relaxed relationship before the night of the kiss. Now they are both unsure of where they stand and the connection they feel towards each other is growing.
The plot involves something sinister happening at the biology department at the university. With killer now has set eyes of Daniele as the next target. And Scott now looking at a possible suspect to the police, things are getting complicated. Daniele and the police investigate and chase the killer as more people end up dead and a puzzle is missing an important piece.
I quite liked the plot it and I really liked both the protagonists. They were strong and instantly likeable. They had good chemistry and a very intense connection. The secondary characters were also quite interesting with Laura Griffin showing a budding relationship between Sean and Brooke which made me felt intrigued.
Quibbles:View Spoiler » Maybe its because I haven’t read the pervious books in the series but I would have liked to know what was up with Scott and Rachel? Daniele didn’t find out so I didn’t either. I also would have liked to know why was Daniele chosen as a target? It felt like it was more than her just being the lead on the case but we never find out who wanted Daniele dead. There were also Scotts behaviour at times which bugged me slightly. « Hide Spoiler
Overall it was my first book by Laura Griffin and I would definitely read more by the author. It was a light suspense with a very interesting plot and good romance combination that I ended up liking it. Looking forward to more books in the series!
