    Twenty years ago, four teenagers at summer camp walked into the woods at night. Two were found murdered, and the others were never seen again. Four families had their lives changed forever. Now, two decades later, they are about to change again.

    All through this book I anticipated the next question, but was often wrong. Lots of surprises that somehow make sense in the end.

    Where does Exercise Motivation, Weight Loss, and Workout Success Pack - Four in One Self-Hypnosis, Guided Meditation, and Subliminal Affirmations Collection rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very good. However I have Law of Attraction, Money and Wealth from this same author and during the guided meditation he says "ready to learn what you have used". I think that is backwards and now I have trouble relaxing due to the mistake. The beginning of this recording is exactly the same so I am guessing he does a cut and paste for that portion of all his recordings. I wonder if my mind cares but I would prefer to "use what I have learned."


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    NA


    What about Joel Thielke’s performance did you like?

    Very smooth and relaxing presentation


    Any additional comments?

    Would love it if the author/presenter could send a recording with the correct words in order.

While preparing his case, Hardy learns that both of Jennifer's husbands had physically abused her. But Jennifer refuses to allow a defense that presumes her guilt. She is not guilty, she claims. Hardy is now driven to seek an alternative truth a jury can believe.

    The picture was a warning: they'd found her. For eight years Grace Archer hoped this day wouldn't come, and knew in her heart that it would. She'd taken her daughter, Frankie, to a rural Alabama horse farm that might just as well have been at the end of the earth. But the man out to kill them would gladly follow them that far. And now, it seems, he had.

    Scott says: "More like a Harlequin Romance"
    "do not recommend"
    Overall

    This was a long and very boring book. I have read other books by this author and enjoyed them very much, it was extremely difficult to even finishe this one. It was one of those reads that you fast forward through 1/2 of the book just to get on with it.
