Lots and lots of detail, plenty of humor although with writing for a character like Izzy Zanella, how can it not be funny?

This brings danger down on Ben and the two couples trying to help him.
Will Izzy and Dan be able to put their differences aside and come up with a plan when they have to save their loved ones? Will Jenn finally believe that Dan really loves her, and not just needs her?
Will Izzy and Eden ever believe what the other one tells them? Or is their reconciliation over before it even started? Trust, trust, trust is the issue in this story.
My God, no one in this book trusts what the other person tells them. No wonder Dan sometimes acts like a judgmental ass! Eden and Izzy? Neither one trusted the other when they said "I love you". These two drove me nuts! I wanted them to sit down and talk and really listen and for once believe what the other was telling them!
Izzy and Dan? Lots of arguing, lots of rubbing each other the wrong way as usual. But at the end of the book, you can see these two with a common goal came to an understanding, and I can see them as actually being friends! Go figure. SB put him out there front and center, and he delivered. And he loves with all his heart. Yes, he would be exhausting to live with, but your life would never be dull. I think SB did him proud. This was her love story to him, and he shined.
So fans of theTroubleshooters, I think you should like this one. Fans know to expect that SB has her views about certain subjects, and as expected, she works them into the storyline. The writing is vintage Brockmann and loaded with detail and humor.
I can just imagine the get-togethers We might have to wait awhile for that, because this is the last Troubleshooters story for now. After all, Jay, Mark, Izzy and Dan are best buddies--they have to be in it. For this one?
