What can I say about this book? Not a lot. It is a competently crafted book that didn't do a thing for me. Two brothers, two sisters, and some obvious villains. It wasn't a hardship to read it to the end but it didn't inspire me to pick up another of Thomas-Like's books. For me there wasn't a lot of suspense, physical chemistry, or sparkling dialogue. The widow was a bit too weepy for my taste and everyone was rather- tepid, even the bad guys. This book will work very well for a certain group of readers that doesn't include me.
