Reseña del editor
Review in USA TODAY "I was fascinated by the plot -- a legacy of a Scottish struggle for independence, forcibly passed down from generation to generation. Schultz...provides some clever twists that increase the stakes for both the hero and the heroine." Young, good-looking, successful and wealthy. Alexandra and Will Cameron had it all until the night he went out to buy ice cream after an evening of passionate sex and never returned. When his body is discovered in a nearby Boston alley, the only clue to his murder is a Scottish sgian dubh dagger left beside it. Will’s grieving widow finds refuge in the Miami villa of his best friend Diego Navarro, who has the means, power and temperament to solve the puzzle and to avenge his friend’s murder. The sinfully handsome and charming womanizer’s feelings for Alexandra run deep, and he becomes equally determined to win the devastated widow’s heart. The attraction between them grows as they follow leads from Miami to Buenos Aires and Scotland, unraveling the Cameron family’s centuries-old secrets.

Will and Alexandra Cameron had an evening of passionate sex after which Will went out for ice cream. He never returned and was found murdered with a Scottish dagger laying by the body. Alex leaves Boston with her husband's wealthy friend Diego to stay in his house in Miami so she can begin to mend. Eventually she returns to Boston and learns that the police have found no additional evidence. She and Diego become determined to find Will's killer. They are joined in their quest by Serge, Diego's bodyguard and end up in Scotland.
All of the characters in this book are well developed and I felt like I knew them all. In addition, the descriptions of the characters made me feel as if I would know them if I saw them walking down the street. The plot had some interesting twists that were quite believable. I hope this book has a sequel!
She's also annoyed that Will's former best but now estranged friend has shown up for the funeral but is so overcome with grief and inability to handle Will's family and friends that she allows Diego Navarro to take over. She tells him she has to get to Logan Airport and get out of Boston and soon thereafter she is comfortably resting and recovering in Diego's Florida home, a luxurious retreat where rest and food prepared by a caring maid allows Alex to begin the healing process. But Diego has something to confess to Alex as well as his overwhelming feelings for her that are beginning to slip out. More and more, she is also responding to him, a rather incredible response given the depth of her love for Will and the short passage of time since his death. Whatever is happening here?
The plot thickens as a family secret and an ultimate betrayal connected with Scotland begins to emerge. Scotland has small segments of its population who want separation from England and have signed a certain document in which members of an elite group vow to do everything possible to further the cause of separation from England - and not peaceful. Yes, financial and other agreements leading to Scottish independence are not enough for this group, and Will becomes the means to punish the one who chose other priorities. How will they do it? The story moves from Boston to Florida to Boston to Scotland and back home to Boston. Will's family is guarding some devastating facts that prove to be unforgiveable. Punish the family before the betrayer. But they don't realize that Diego and his bodyguard, a former Massad agent, have different plans and they are not peaceful either? How much will Alex play along?
Harriet Schultz has written a fascinating mystery/thriller novel. There's a bit too much of waiting for the story to evolve but it's worth the wait as events begin to spin out of control both on the personal front between Diego and Alex and on the international front for those seeking revenge. Will there be a satisfactory finale? Read it and discover what possibilities follow for all involved in this lethal story! Nicely done, Ms. Schultz!
p.s. I won a copy of this book from the Goodreads.com website which came personally signed and with a note from Ms. Schultz. The only request was that a post my honest review of the book.
