The Devil's Cove series continues as Courtney Brennan, interior designer and gift shop owner, wants to buy a nearby cottage. Her plans run into a hitch when owner Blair Colby returns, intending to live there. Courtney is attracted to the architect, yet determined to stay away after being burned in the past. But when both the cottage and her apartment are searched, it seems someone is being targeted. While Vendetta (2), by Ruth Langan, brings back appealing characters from earlier books, the story is slight, the sexual tension weak and the solution to the mystery falls flat. More fully developed main characters would have strengthened this book.
