Why This Must Be Read: This is a very rare pairing but the author makes it work. Tragedy strikes the CBI team, leaving Grace and Cho dealing with the aftermath. What I liked about this story was the way Grace and Cho go from being casual friends/co-workers, to actual friends, to being a couple. It is such a soft gentle romance, that has moments of sadness, and of course moments of joy.
