From a Local Johnsburg, Illinois Author



 By: Susan Rae

Genre: Romance Suspense

Pages: 304

Published: 2005

Read: May

4 out of 5 stars 

This is the second time I read this novel and I must say I enjoyed it more the second time around – increased it a star.  However, I personally think it would market better if not classified as a romance.  There is more suspense in the story than romance and what mystery doesn’t include a little romance. Rae develops her characters well and keeps the reader engrossed in the story.  I was able to solve the case quickly, however there were enough twists and turns others may not. As in most romance novels, you can’t help but fall in love with the hero.  As an added bonus, the story line takes place in my local area – Chicago and Richmond, Illinois. Of course, this is because the author lives in the same town as me. In fact, I know her and her family personally.

This is Susan Rae’s first novel of three. Her third novel, ICE Blue, is the sequel to Heartbeats. Her website is www.susanrae.com
