Entertaining, for sure, but nothing extraordinary. This would be the perfect book for a couple of rainy afternoons

One of the very best by Johansen. Pain, love, and transformation for a woman who thought she was a "Plain Jane" until a brutal murder changes her life and goals completely. Not a big fan of sloppy romance, so this was an excellent book for anyone who wants a story with a strong woman as main character.
