Comment: I won't take too long with this one, for this was a DNF for me.
In this story, the first in the 'Burg series, we meet detective Alexander Colton as he investigates an apparent stalker of February Owens, his high school sweetheart. The stalker seems to have escalated into murder and when the story begins, a woman everyone in the town knows has been murdered. As the investigation starts, February - now helping with the family bar after years away - is placed in a complicated situation and those close to her are eager to be assured of her safety. Alexander wants to be a professional and find the bad guy but he also wants to win February back, although he doesn't yet know, after years, why she broke up with him when they were together in high school... will they finally find peace?
Not many words are necessary to express myself here, this was a book I didn't finish therefore there isn't a lot about the plot I am able to comment on. While I was reading the first chapter, the way the author described the female characters was just so... abhorrent to me, I just couldn't find any real motivation to keep reading. February was described as someone all guys would want to be with but the words used weren't in any way acceptable to me. We have Alexander's POV as he describes February and it was more than simply an alpha male talking, as often one would expect from this author. To me, that was more along the lines of sexist and derogatory.
