Rating 2.5 __Minimal sexual content, none graphic
Stand alone read. 41st book in the multi-author Going Back series

EASY READ. Likable hero, strong family theme, characters that develop over the storyline, a good secondary cast, and a rushed, but sweet ending. HOWEVER, the writing is mediocre, the storyline is overly contrived and predictable, the heroine is very self-focused, the plot premise that she has a close, loving family she hasn’t seen in eight years and must be tricked into coming home by a phantom medical emergency, just isn’t believable, a “recreational-sex” drama is NOT a romance, and the story just drags in places making the book difficult to stick with. These issues are annoying and detract from the story.

THE STORY reunites Krista Novak, interpreter and world traveler, and Alex Costas, landscaper and talented photographer. Eight years earlier, Krista and Alex had a hot fling, which broke off abruptly when she accepted a job stationed in Prague and he remained behind to work in his father’s landscaping business after his mother died.

As the story unfolds, Krista receives a misleading “emergency” call from her hospitalized mother, asking her to come home. Once there, she realizes it is all a ruse and decides to return to Europe to catch up to her friends enjoying a Swiss skiing vacation. But the weather has other ideas and one cancellation after another give Krista time to become reacquainted with her family. The delays also give Alex and Krista time to renew their relationship and they find their feelings for each other are still hot.

OVERALL, a run-of-the-mill storyline with a shallow romance. Skip it! There are much better books out there.

You may also enjoy the complex characters and storytelling of N. Bruhns, A. Stuart, and E. Palfrey. For good mystery/detective writers you might try J. D. Robb, D. Stabenow, S. Grafton, Gayle Wilson, and Julie Miller.
Likeable characters, good story.
