Most of the characters were very well done in this book. The dirty old man who appoints himself as Violet's protector is great for some comic relief. The mysterious home buyer adds a good level of intrigue to the story. The rich man looking to sell his house has money, is handsome, and seems interested in Violet. Her coworkers add depth to the story as well. She has her supportive friend and the chauvinistic jerk who ticked me off every time he was involved in anything.
The story telling kept me in the dark as to what was really happening and I changed my mind several times as the story progressed. If you are interested in mystery/thrillers with a bit of a romantic angle (which I usually am not) this series is something you should definitely check out.
