Sherlock-esk romance filled with characters you cant help but root for!

Setting: Middle of nowhere, Canada
Sexual Themes: yes, sexual scenes
Recommendation: If you're looking for a romance that you won't want to put down, is filled with heartache, redemption and acceptance then you've found one to pick up.
Both characters were portrayed in a realistic way with flaws and pain that was balanced by Ian's kind heart and Cecily's strength. Ian had a Sherlock-esk way of seeing Cecily, attributed to his Lawyer skills, but it was interesting to see his observations woven into the main arc of the story. Their love story progressed at a refreshingly slow pace, one falling before the other and unwilling to believe it. Through the course of the book both make multiple sacrifices for themselves and for each other and are rewarded with a new start to their lives that they both desperately needed.
The writing was easy to understand and flowed seamlessly from once scene to another. There were little to no typos and the paper back had the most delicious tactile feel (yeah I'm a sucker for a well made book).
