The Review
By Christine Bryant

This is the first novel I've read by Tristi Pinkston and I must say I was impressed. Not only did she keep my interest throughout every suspense filled page, but she added a bit of humor and romance as well. This book is sure to appeal to just about any reader with its tough female character who's not afraid to stand up for herself and an even tougher hero that isn't too caught up in his manhood to put on a dress and a little makeup to save the girl. I found myself on the edge of my seat one moment and laughing my head off the next.

Well done, Tristi. I think you have a winner here.
