Another great mystery and romance. As Dani and Patrick work together to find the missing pieces of puzzle.
Received ARC for my honest opinion of which I have given.

Loved this. Perfect trilogy wrap up.

This book was the perfect ending to the Lightening Strikes trilogy. It is written very well and it could be read as a stand alone because previous events are described as part of the story. However, this book is so good you will want to make sure to read Beautiful Storm and Lightening Lingers.

Barbara Freethy has weaved a story of intrigue, mystery, family and love. You will follow the Monroe family as they finally get the answers they have been seeking for over 10 years. Dani Monroe lost her father. Patrick Kade lost his mother. Together they solve the mysteries of their deaths. Does lightening guide them and tell their story?

You will not want to put this book down.
