Throwback Thursday: Truth or Dare by Jayne Ann Krentz

Author: Jayne Ann Krentz
First published in 2003 by Putnam

Upscale interior designer Zoe Luce has found peace and contentment in Whispering Springs, Arizona. She has a thriving business, and she's settling into newlywed life with private investigator Ethan Truax. The threat that brought Zoe and Ethan together is finally over, ancient history, or so Zoe believes. Very few people know of her uncanny ability to sense the dark secrets hidden within the walls of a house, and she wants to keep it that way, even from Ethan. But someone is stalking Zoe - someone who knows all about her, and who shadows her every move. Is it the same person who is threatening her closest friend, Arcadia Ames, the only other person in Whispering Springs who knows the truth about Zoe? Or are Zoe and Arcadia getting tangled in a web spun by someone more dangerous than they could ever have imagined?

Truth or Dare is the sequel to Light in Shadow (my review).  I liked this continuation of the series because we got to see more of Ethan and Zoe.  In the first book, their romance is quick and instant.  In this one, we can see how they do "after" the HEA.  It's not all roses and candlelight and I felt like that made it more realistic.  They actually spent time discussing their relationship and their commitment to making it work.

The characters from the first book are prominent in this one as well.  In fact, I felt like the story was a resolution for all of the couples from the first one.  Well, all but one couple.  I was a little disappointed that one couple's romance was left unresolved.  This book is packed with more than one mystery.  It was almost too much and probably could have been made into  a trilogy.  In any case, I do recommend this one.  It's definitely worth it.
