She's got a formula, but it's a formula that works for me so I don't care. Ticks all the Krentz boxes. I think her last couple of stand-alone romantic suspense novels have felt more energetic than a lot of her recent books. (I don't think much of this narrator, Amanda Leigh Cobb--very girlish, voices aren't well distinguished, often the pacing and emphasis feel off to me. But I like these books on audio and she's not so bad I can't stand it).
