Romance:(Spoiler!) The whole mystery is a bachelor party though Alena, his fiancee is in real danger.Nick's friends were helping him see that he did want to get married.Alena has her dogs sleeping with her and wonders how it will feel with Nick.Nothing really inappropriate.And not really a lot.

Other:Several men watch Alena when she goes into town to wait for Nick's calls.A guy hits on her who is married.An FBI agent in on the secret, flirts with Nick and he doesn't fall for her.

Time Period:Modern.

What I Thought:I loved it!Nick was funny and sarcastic.The plot was great!Changing, a great mystery and exciting!And even though there were at least three books earlier in the series, you can pick  this book up and understand it fine.

Rating & Age:5 stars.I would say fine for 13/14 up.It really depends on what the parents think and the maturity of the teen.But I would say it would be fine.


I got this book free from Booksneeze.

I review for BookSneeze®
