      Though I own quite a few of Powell's books, this is the first one I've had a chance to read. I was hopeful but had no idea what to expect. Luckily, I really did enjoy this.I would classify this as a romance that had mystery elements. The romance is the main focus of the book, but with one character a detective, and the other a forensic artist, you also had mystery/crime parts of the book.I thought both characters were well written. And as a reader you felt like you got to know them and identify [...]

      Being an artist, I was a little worried about whether VK would be able to authentically capture the "artistic" process, since most of the books I've read by her have been about cops and crime (Her former career, which she obviously writes about with authority.) Well, I shouldn't have worried for a moment. VK did an amazing job of describing feelings about creating art that I don't think I could have articulated myself, but which ring true. Happily, there's also a cop in this story :-)I really li [...]

      Hilariously delightful encounters sparkle during the opening of this book and are peppered throughout. I wasn't prepared for, but not disappointed by, the many amusingly charming episodic engagements that occurred. They also wonderfully balanced the intrigue and the out-of-this-world unraveling of a fairly old missing person’s case. It was so astonishing that I had to re-read the book again as soon as possible. I truly enjoyed it the first time round, but my level of appreciation simply skyroc [...]

      I think if I had remembered reading this book I would not have listened to it. It was ok, I found the narrator a little annoying but mostly I discovered that "listening" to a sex scene in a romance novel is dramatically different from reading one. I could not fast forward fast enough. Which is not a knock to the book or the narrator, my discomfort was all about me. I've made a mental not to never buy an audible romance again.

      There were some great stakes in this one - Macy is in a reclusive period and heading toward a new rock bottom while Leigh is a strong women who is tired of being a doormat. I enjoy romance where the two protagonists progress into intimacy at different paces, but I don't like chases. This book did a great job of having them progress differently without giving me the feeling that one was pushing the other into things she wasn't ready for.A good read.

      This was the first book I had read by this author and when I started it I was not sure I was going to enjoy it however that soon changed and the twists and turns in the story made it really enjoyable

      *I received this book through Netgalley in return for an honest review. Macy Sheridan's dream was to be a full time artist, but doing forensic reconstruction work paid the bills. That is, it did until she walked out of the police department and vowed never to work with them again. How could she when they refused to do the only thing she'd ever asked of them, to reopen the missing person's case that has been haunting her for over 15 years. As the constant memory of her lost best friend draws her [...]

      So once I figured out this was a romance novel and not a crime fiction novel, my mood while reading this improved."Reclusive forensic artist Macy Sheridan agrees to work one final case she hopes will solve the mystery that’s haunted her for years. The only things blocking her from achieving her goal are a perfect facial reconstruction and Detective Leigh Monroe, a woman who reminds her of the past and challenges her future."The first half of this book was really awkward. The pacing was all ove [...]

      Finished reading this one early and in one day. Pretty amazing book the story was well told and there was so much going on with both women that I actually felt what they were going throw. I love how they help one another find what they were always looking for even if they didn't know what they were looking for at first. The story was pretty crazy too how it all fit in perfectly in the end. I can wait to read another book by Powell this was my first book by her and i hope all of them are as good [...]

      Classic lesbian mystery in the style of Katherine V Forrest, the steamy scenes were less appealing to me at age 59 than they might have been 30 years ago. Guess I need to wake upbut seriously, I'd have enjoyed a bit more mystery & a little less angst & sex. But for those who enjoy these elements, it's an extra good read!

      I liked it! The characters are very nice and interesting, expecially Macy and Jack. Although there were no surprises, the story ran very smoothly - I'm sure I'll listen to it again. Gabra Zackman is an excellent narrator.

      Despite a promising set-up, this book bogs down in contrived interpersonal drama and ill-fitting neat bow resolutions.

      Probably closer to 2.5 (I'm really not a fan of insta-love and this was pretty much that) and the mystery part just didn't work for me, in fact I guessed it quite easily before it was revealed.
