Will any of them survive once they uncover the secrets of Devereaux Manor?

My Review:

Smith is one of those authors who can get the perfect balance of everything in her pages. Emotions explode and mystery reigns the day as romance blooms. Smith writes suspense and anxiety with such realism that you can’t help but feel it seeping from the pages of the book. Combine this with her down to earth yet extremely picturesque descriptions I feel like I’d stepped into the South myself.

The characters also really make this story. Those we’ve known throughout the series really shine here. She combines southern charm with big city curtness, sweet with sexy, suspense with romance, reality with imagination. Smith’s character development wasn’t overly indepth, but her unique method of bringing them forward worked very well with the story.

This was a bittersweet ending to Smith`s series. I enjoyed each moment of it, but I`m sad that there`s no more to come.
