Kat Martinís newest romantic suspense is The Summit. At the heart of this story is a very real crisis of a missing child. The reader can sympathize with Ben, though not always appreciate his actions toward Autumn. Autumn is a strong heroine trying to do the right thing. Still, I was never able to believe the romantic aspect of this story. For me, the characters didnít click and I found myself disconnected from them.
