about

Daughter of a controlling mother, Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever.

Twelve years later, the woman known as Abigail Lowery lives on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she designs sophisticated security  systems—and supplements her own security with a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. But Abigail’s reserve only intrigues police chief Brooks Gleason. Her logical mind, her secretive nature, and her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something—and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

With a quirky, unforgettable heroine and a pulse-pounding plotline, Nora Roberts presents a riveting new read that cements her place as today’s most reliably entertaining thriller

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light Read Found the first third of the book pretty interesting, the rest of the book was predicable. My first time reading a Nora Roberts book, it was okay for a light read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Par for the course As romance novels are not my usual genre, I would say this is a pretty good, light read! The cynic in me was waiting for certain cliches to happen, but Roberts tied this up with a nice little bow. Will I read more Nora? I think if I needed to grab a paperback on the way to travel somewhere it would probably be an entertaining read with some feelings, some sexy times, and apparently some specific recipes to try! So... Not as bad as I imagined, but I still maintain the right to be annoyed when having to shelve her eleventy-seven books! (Shout out to ma' booksellers, yo!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Witness I really loved the story line, it was interesting and different. The end of the book went bit too fast as if the author all of a sudden realized she has x number of pages left but still good book. One of the best ones from Roberts in this crime-romance series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from can't put it down Love it . . .one of my favorite. Nora doesn't disappoint. The way she describes Elisabeth and then Liz makes you actually see her, feel for her. And the way Brooks gets through to Abigail . . . sigh . . . Can't wait for her next book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gobbled it up! I loved this book and read it in one helping. The characters are rich, layered and unique.While the ended seemed rather abrupt and quick in comparison to the build up, I was not disappointed. If you like character driven plots that focus on relationships and pure escapism then this book will not disappoint.
