Delightful winner

The second of the delightful The Wild Ones Duet is another warm-heated story with an intriguing and off-beat mystery element and pleasingly different from the first book. Part of the strength lies in the fact that the characters are almost opposites, Rick an irresistible bad boy although his introspection does become frustrating at times and the pleasingly strong supposedly socialite Nell determined to rise above her ill luck. Although you did rather want to shake some sense into both characters at times you were always rooting for them. I would have liked Nell to have been initially stronger in standing up to her father. If there was one downside it was the overkill on cupcakes - I know they were an important part of the story but their constant intrusion became boring. That gripe aside this similarly to the first in the duo was a page turner and I can't choose which of them or the characters I liked better. Ten out of ten
