I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher via Netgally in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. This is the first book that I have read of Debbie Mason's. Her covers have always grabbed my attention so after reading the description of this story I knew this would be the perfect first book to read of hers.
Debbie does a great job of developing the main characters so that you truly understand their past and what makes them tick. In addition, she does a great job of introducing minor characters that will later on become more important in the story and series. I think of any books that I have read in the last month or two this by was my favorite one in regards to characters. I think I connected a lot with Cat and could understand what she was going through.
The setting of the book I think fit very well with the story and was changed accordingly depending on where you were in the book. If there was one part that I think that I would change it would have been to learn a little more about Easton as I know he will play a large part in the next story.
If I had to choose the best part of the book I would say it was the romance and mystery that Debbie had in this book. In addition to the normal romance that is in books she intermixed it with a mystery of who is the suspect trying to hurt Chloe O'Connor. The ending to the story to truly surprised me and did not see coming.
All in all it was a great book and I can't wait to read the past and future books in this series so I can learn more about the characters and the small town of Christmas, Colorado.
