A good mystery with the bonus that I did not guess the ending. But the romance went from "we have something that needs exploring here" to moving in together,with nothing inbetween - no dates, no romance, nothing. Just an assumption that their past together meant they had a future together. But the past involved the hero dumping the heroine as a teenager because he would not cope with her "issues" and then on a "break" from his new girlfriend he has a one night stand with her, gets her pregnant and then goes back to his new girlfriend. Hardly the start of something wonderful. We were constantly told about the strength of their feelings and the wonders of their teenage romance, but the actions of the Hero certainly do not inspire confidence in his feelings.
Another gripe is that although I do not mind a moody teenage girl, this one was a real brat, and there was no hint that there was any genuine affection between mother and daughter. I would have liked at least a hint that beneath all that teenage angst, there lurked someone worth liking.
Ironically the romance, with its poor back story, does actually feel genuine and I feel just a few tweaks in the plot could have made this a lot deeper in emotion. And the book was saved by a good mystery with multiple POV.
