There is also the driving force of this book which is a murder, as all good crime stores should have (or a really good heist of some type). The author takes us through Emma and her husband's daily life, their struggles, and her diminished role in his eyes before getting to the good stuff.
Kendricks' writing is fairly straight-forward to begin with, although she does show a soft side momentarily before the action heats up, then it's all romance, sex, denial and decay, right before our eyes.
This is Kendricks' first novel, and she has a good chance of becoming a regular in the Romance books section - and I hope, a regular in a more defined area of woman-detective, woman-empowered roles that show women can be strong and beautiful at the same time.
