When soap opera star Abby Langford leaves Los Angeles for her Minnesota hometown, she’s hoping to give her nine-year-old daughter the peaceful childhood she never knew. But instead of tranquility, Abby finds an old knife hidden between the walls of her new Victorian house. Then the nightmares start: a blood-soaked victim and a killer’s arm slicing through the air, again and again.
Police Chief Josh Kincaid assumes Abby is just scheming to get back into the tabloid headlines. But she’s turning out to be nothing like the spoiled diva he imagined. Abby is warm, honest, sexy, and the target of very real death threats. And now Josh wonders if her visions are of crimes past - or a premonition of terrors to come. As passion engulfs them, Abby and Josh must uncover the truth and stop a killer…before Abby’s worst nightmares come true.

Good flow with this story. There were some twists that added to the intrigue of the plot. Interesting characters, but not so many that it was hard to remember who was who. Any story is better when there are good chuckles. There was suspense, romance, laughs and plot twists. What more could a reader ask for.
When she showed her daughter the school where she had gone as a kid. There were memories and suspense and a good laugh about learning to cut with scissors.
Karen White is a consistent narrator. I recognized immediately that she had read some of the Miss Julia books.
Yes, I pretty much listened to the book in one sitting. I listen while I do my crafts and find it helps to have a book that keeps me settled in for the long haul. However, it is also difficult when the story is over before my project is done. I hope her next book is longer.
When is the next book going to be published and recorded?
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
great mystery for the price
I have so many of her stories now, she can make a males voice fun, or sexy but her female voice is not so great. It ok as she reads the story with the correct pace which helps
yes, as it is a good mystery
I was pleasantly surprised with this book, I just took a chance on it as I'd never read this author before. I really liked this book! Good story, good narrator, worth a credit. I was completely shocked to find out who the stalker/killer was! I never even considered this person until the scene where you find out who it is. Hope to see more from this author and narrator on Audible.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
What a great romance and set in the state of Minnesota. Abby comes home to Minnesota when she divorces her cheating husband after one too many affairs. She wants her daughter Maddie to have the wonderful childhood that she did not. Abby's parents were both drunks and her father threw in some physical abuse too. Enough that Abby learned to block out all the bad memories until therapy after her divorce started unblocking them.
Luckily, Abby was informally adopted by her best friend Laura's parents Bill and Mary. They are all still in her hometown to provide love and support. But Abby also seems to have attracted a stalker with her return home. It seems someone believes that the cheating adulteress she portrayed on a popular soap opera was the real Abby. Such a belief was aided by Abby's not defending herself when the press painted her as the one who had affairs that ended her marriage. Even the local police chief Josh has trouble separating the actress from the reality. Of course, Josh has the slight excuse of being in the process of getting over his own divorce and his own cheating wife.
At first, Josh is certain that Abby is manufacturing the stalker for publicity but it doesn't take long for him to see Abby as she really is. He begins investigating the stalker episodes and investigating the steadily more realistic dreams that Abby is having about a murder. Of course, things are even more complicated by a reappearance of the cheating husband and Josh's former young girlfriend who doesn't want to let him go.
This was a good mystery too. The identity of the stalker and his motives came as a complete surprise to me.
I really enjoyed this story and will be looking for more by this author.
This was a real entertaining read. The minute you thought the stalker was found-out, he wasn't.
I liked Josh and Abby. He was a little disbelieving at first but he came around. And I liked how they fell in love
slowly, rather than falling in love after 3 seconds. I do hate it when the hero and heroine fall in love as soon as they meet.
I liked Laura and Kim, too. They were such good friends. And Maddie was a nice kid. Colin was a real self-centered jerk.
There was good sexual tension and sex in this book. Which made it all the better.
I got this book free with my KindleUnlimited but I would have no problem paying for it. And the audible was free too. I like to just read along.
As to the narrator: She was good. Not great but I would listen to her again. She didn't do a real good job on the men's voices but they were ok.
