Sins & Needles - Karina Halle Quite enjoyed this. I was a bit wary as it appeared to be self-published, but the writing was quite good (nice change of pace from 98% of the self-published stuff I've read...or tried to read). No major editing problems.

I really liked the characters. Ellie was a trying-to-be reformed con artist, which is a rather unusual trade for romance novel lead. I liked her combination of smarts and vulnerability. She and Camden were a good fit. They've both got issues that they are trying to get over.

My big beef with this book, however, is that it isn't a complete story. The story just *stops* on a cliffhanger. I understand that it is listed as part of a trilogy, but usually each book in a trilogy still has some parts of the story that feel like a completed narrative arc. This book didn't have that.

I am definitely looking forward to the next installment.
