Out of Focus - Nancy Naigle I really liked this book. It was a little more focused on mystery than romance. It is the second book in a series but could really have been a standalone book. The first book introduced us to Adams Grove and I expected to spend more time there. I was a little disappointed that I had to wait until almost halfway through the book to find any connection or mention of Adams Grove. I was also disappointed not to have been able to see more of the characters in the first book in this one.

That being said, I actually enjoyed the mystery in this book more than the first one. The romance is handled well given the subject matter surrounding the story. The characters are again well developed and likable in general. I liked how the relationships developed throughout the story. Although the timeline of the story was not always clear it was still quite easy to follow the plot. It was not quite as easy to identify the perpetrator in this story as it was in the first book.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a light mystery with a little romance and suspense added to the mix. Although this is the second book in the series, I believe these two can be read in any order. My overall rating for this one is 3.5 stars. I am looking forward to the third in the series.
