I hadn't previously read the first and second books of this series, but I don't think it deterred my enjoyment of this book in any way.
It had a few slow spots, but mostly there was good action and kept the suspense going. I loved that it was a contemporary book which took a little part of it to incorporate some Amish parts in it. It keeps you guessing. Enjoyed the romance and thought it was a pretty good read. Glad I won a copy!
