Summary of the Book:
Just when I was getting a handle on my magic, my fae family drama, and an unwanted fiance, someone wants me dead. Again.
Returning home is never easy, especially when you’ve lived apart from your family for eight long years and your face reminds them of your well-loved twin whose murder still haunts these halls. How can I, Becka Rowan, live up to her memory?
I’d only been back home a few weeks when tragedy struck again in the form of a poisoner. I almost died. My father lies in a coma, his fate uncertain.
It’s bad enough that I’m always being measured up to my beloved twin; how can I ever hope to feel safe and welcome at House Rowan with Shadow Dwellers and poisoners out to get me?
The assassination attempt brings Enforcer Quinn back to House Rowan. I’m excited to be working side by side with Quinn again, solving the case together. His return gives me the opportunity to find out if the connection between us is real. I hope he feels the same draw to me as I do to him.
But Quinn’s holding back; keeping things professional between us. Can I blame him? I’m still engaged to my dead twin’s fiance! I need to control my magic, end my engagement, and then find a path forward with Quinn. Is that too much to ask?
Assuming Quinn and I can solve the poisoning before they strike again.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. We are back at Rowan House and the problem with the Shadow Dwellers. There are people trying to poison Becka. Quinn is back from the city to help her once again. She is trying to get close to him to see if things can go somewhere but he is keeping things professional since she is not engaged to her dead sister’s fiancé. But that is now what Becka wants she wants Quinn. I think I enjoyed this one more than the first one. It was so full of twists and turns that kept me turning the pages. The story just keeps getting better and deeper with each book. I want to see what more comes between her and Quinn. I get the impression that he feels it too.
My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
