Out of Time is the fourth book in the Westbeach series by Toni Denise. This is the first book that I have read by Toni Denise, so I really didn’t know what to expect going into the story. I also didn’t realise going in that this is the 4th book in a series- I was too fixated on the cover and blurb to realise that. Having read the story now, I can say that although it could be read as a standalone, there are definitely times I felt like I was missing something, references were made to things that happened previously, that I am not aware of or don’t have all the details to(?). So, I will definitely be going back to read the other three books to see if having that information on board will enhance my reading experience of this book.
Having said that, this was definitely an intriguing romantic suspense that unravelled in a way that kept me thinking, trying to piece everything together before any ‘big reveal’. The author created palpable tension and suspense through her story- which was well done. But I really think I would have enjoyed the book more if I had read the previous books. So, stay tuned, I will revisit this review once I have read the other books to see if they help piece everything together more.
Thank you, Toni Denise!
