      While I read Before We Were Strangers I realized again how much I enjoy romantic suspense Especially when the story feels like a real mystery that keeps me on my toes throughout the entire book.Besides the slow burn and second chance romance that wound its way through the novel, and made my romance reader heart happy, the exciting and suspenseful search for answers was the main attraction of this story.From the very beginning the author pretty much served the main suspect on a silver platter B W [...]
