Why this book?:
It is the second book in a series that was recommended to me. I enjoyed/was interested in the 1st book enough to go on.
So the prologue caught me. Even though I couldn't understand the trust. I was mentally shouting NO!!! Bad Idea! Anyway, that meant I was pretty edge of my seat when chapter 1 starts off in a light-hearted way. And I was impatient for them to get on with it! Find the baby! Because, oh, did I mention?, this is a baby-kidnapping-fradulant-adoption story. (A theme that I've seen before, but this had an interesting twist. Or at least an interesting information source.)
Once the story catches up with the drama, I settled in. The bad guy is pretty obvious. Not a problem for me. There were valid reasons why it wouldn't be as obvious to the characters as to the reader. I did read a review on Amazon that pointed out some plot line connection issues that, now that I'm thinking of them, do make me wonder. But overall I still enjoyed the story.
And I've already continued on and read book 3. (There's a bit of a cliffhanger that made me glad I already had it on hand.)
Oh, and in (accidental) perfect timing, the story starts on Black Friday and ends around Christmas. So I was actually in season.
