My Take

OK, not what I was expecting. After her World of the Lupi series, I was not expecting a normal romance. Wilks is a good writer and I did enjoy Midnight Promises with its schoolteacher-turned-handywoman who was married to her childhood friend, the small town hottie, on the spur of the moment by Elvis in Las Vegas.

The underlying issues are Annie’s need for stability and safety while Jack doesn’t trust in love and runs when it rears its scary head. Their conflict is tied in with black market drug dealing which Jack uncovers in Borneo in connection with the international construction company for whom he works building clinics, hospitals, and schools in third world countries. Unfortunately, it seems someone isn’t happy that Jack won’t let up on the investigation. And now Annie’s a target too.
