There's not a romantic bone in the novel -- nor, some would argue, in the author himself -- but when I read the RT Book Reviews notice about Nothing to Hide, my bodice just about ripped. You see, the RT stands for Romantic Times, which reviews a variety of genres including mystery. Here's what they had to say about my book:
Bertrand’s third police procedural featuring homicide detective Roland March is intricately plotted and thoroughly engaging. The action starts on the first page and doesn’t let up until the last. The cast of characters is large, but Bertrand does a great job keeping their identities clear-cut and easy to follow. Reading the first two books in the series is helpful, but not crucial, for the enjoyment of this stellar novel.
This is the first print review of the book I've seen. Now I can stop holding my breath and let the feeling return to my extremities. (I've got to stop joking about this bodice thing.) Plus, I have a new respect for the word stellar. Expect me to use it often from now on.
