A long and boring story about a house renovation ( look, for that there's "House Rules"... of which I'm fan), with a lukewarm romance _ the number of stereotypes in which the guy falls is ridiculous _ and almost no suspense (with the exception of the beginning of the story), in a supposed thriller.
The only reason this doesn't get a one star is because the author obviously knows how to write.
I've read so many NR's books and lately it seems as if the author has fallen into this clinical writing style that annoys the hell out of me.
As for the romance, it is probably the weakest of them all.
A big meh for a big book.
How this got nominated for "best romance" _ by GR's _ is beyond me.
