    The narration spoiled it for me. The characters sounded like a race of robots. I intend to read the book at a later date.

    Roberta Paxton had a pleasant, challenging job, a man who loved her, and a host of good friends, but anxiety gnawed at her, at the back of her mind, at the edge of her vision, something was threatening her... something or someone. She tried to talk about it, but nobody wanted to listen, not even her 13-year-old sister, Tobie. Roberta had had these premonitions before, Tobie reminded her. She was just being paranoid.

    I almost gave up on this book. I enjoyed the story but the narration was bland and nearly put me to sleep. I managed to get through the book by reading it rather than listening to it.

    I love when the narration uses a male for male voice and female for the female role. Both narrators did a wonderful job. I felt their pain and their comfort. It teaches us the importance of mourning so you can eventually move on. Thank you Jasinda Wilder for this touching novel.

    It's a powerful story of obsession and delusion. The perpetrator seem to see himself as the victim. I suppose he was the victim of a delusional mind. Hats off to James Wilby for his wonderful narration.

    The Perry family's new house is perfect - except for the weird behavior of the neighbors, and that odd smell coming from a dark corner in the basement. Pity no one warned the family about the house. Now it's too late. Because the darkness at the bottom of the basement stairs is rising.

    It's been seven years since the Seattle Strangler terrorized the city. His victims were all young, pretty, their lifeless bodies found wrapped in a home-sewn white dress. But there was one who miraculously escaped death, just before the Strangler disappeared. Lara Church has only hazy memories of her long-ago attack. What she does have is a home in Austin, a job, and a chance at a normal life at last. Then Texas Ranger James Beck arrives on her doorstep with shattering news: The Strangler is back....

    Rachel Parker never planned on going back home. But when a terrible accident abruptly ends her riding career, she has little choice but to return to Pennsylvania and rebuild the family horse farm. Not everyone is happy to see Rachel, though - someone is vandalizing her property, leaving ominous warnings she can’t ignore. It’s as if the creep knows her. As if he’s watching her. Police Chief Mike O’Connell never counted on Rachel Parker getting in his way. Mike is frustrated as his investigation turns up too many suspects and a shockingly turbulent past Rachel refuses to discuss.

    The storyline was good but at times the narration was not up to par. I debated whether or not to give the narration two stars or three. I did figure out who the watcher was almost as soon as the character was introduced but I still enjoyed the book.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!
