Review: The Achilles Heel By: Karyn Rae

The Achilles HeelThe Achilles Heel by Karyn Rae
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I think that this book is between a 3 and 3.5 star rating.

Annie Whitman finds herself a widow to a man with secrets. From the moment her husband's car and body were consumed by fire in a one man accident to the pre paid arrangements, followed by the reaction of her brother in law at the will reading and mysterious lockbox and keys that lead her to St Criox. Those secrets came with the price of her husband's life and it is possible that it might come to hers before she uncovers everything that was left behind for her to find. The one thing she didn't count on was finding love on the island.
Kessler Carlisle was tired of the music scene and ready to retire. He finds that he wants more from life and heads to a tropical paradise to hide away. There he finds something special, though at first he hides just who he is, and realizes that he wants to make a go at it - but something dangerous is lurking about, hopefully, this won't end before it gets started.

I found at times the book was very intense and thrilling in it's writing style, other times (just a few) it lagged. A great story, had me wanting to reach the end. The love story did happen a little too quickly, but the mystery was well drawn out. I think this is just the book to read on the beach on by the side of the pool this summer.
