My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Poe’s story ends a quite brilliant series from Davidson King but I found it absolutely fitting that the final words in the book go to Snow and Simon – which is where this excellent tale began some six books previous and 10 years earlier in the narrative.
While Bill and Mace from A Dangerous Dance remain my favourite pair, I have to say that I was absolutely dying to find out Poe’s secrets and what secrets they were. There won’t be any spoilers in this review, unfortunately there’s lots already out there, so be careful if you’ve not read this yet when browsing Amazon or Goodreads.
Suffice it to say, all my questions were answered, secrets were revealed which made events which happened in earlier books make perfect sense, costs were heavy at times, but the ending was everything I’d expect to find in a romantic suspense novel.
I both loved and, at times, wanted to shake Poe during this series, but here all the reasons for why he is as he is were revealed and I came to absolutely understand everything about what made him the man he was.
I was vaguely close in my guessing as to what his secret would be, but still quite a way away from the actual truth and I might have just squealed a bit when that came out because it was utterly perfect and made me smile lots.
The dual POV was such a great way to bring us into the head of (I’m not telling you who Poe’s love is so no spoilers here!) Mr Poe and the occasional flashbacks gave more insight and made a necessary addition to the strange mix of found family we’ve come to know so well.
All the usual suspects are also firmly involved in this tale as all the threads weave together into a dramatic, adrenalin-fueled conclusion.
If you’ve not picked up this series yet, I highly recommend it, it’s one of my favourites.
