Jayne A Krentz 'All Night Long'

Okay despite the terrible title, I liked this book. After seventeen years, Irene goes back to the small lakeside resort town in Northern California where her parents had been murdered when an old friend contacts her out of the blue. She meets Luke Danner, ex-marine who has bought a set of small cabins on the water that Irene rents.

This set up is as standard as it gets from JAK. But while some of her recent books have felt a little tired, this one made me laugh out loud. You have to love the heroine's tall black boots and long black coat, this woman knows how to handle herself or is willing to learn. And any hero who can live down a discussion of his Erectile Dysfunction in front of his family has to have a sense of humor.
