This is a new to me author and even though I didn't read the first book in the series, I really enjoyed this one and had no problem catching up on the characters. I must say that my first love, snappy dialogue, is well represented here. The characters just sparkle! Janet can take care of herself and even though she is wealthy beyond words, she loves to mix it up. Rocky just sears the pages and reminds me a bit of Ranger from the Stephanie Plum series. If you enjoy romantic suspense, you will love this series. I am off to find the first book, so I can catch up and be ready for the next one.
