Bellamy Lyston was only 12 years old when her older sister Susan was killed on a stormy Memorial Day. Bellamy's fear of storms is a legacy of the tornado that destroyed the crime scene along with her memory of what really happened during the day's most devastating moments.
Now, 18 years later, Bellamy has written a sensational, best-selling novel based on Susan's murder. Because the book was inspired by the tragic event that still pains her family, she published it under a pseudonym to protect them from unwanted publicity. But when an opportunistic reporter for a tabloid newspaper discovers that the book is based on fact, Bellamy's identity is exposed along with the family scandal.
Moreover, Bellamy becomes the target of an unnamed assailant who either wants the truth about Susan's murder to remain unknown or, even more threatening, is determined to get vengeance for a man wrongfully accused and punished.
In order to identify her stalker, Bellamy must confront the ghosts of her past, including Dent Carter, Susan's wayward and reckless boyfriend - and an original suspect in the murder case. Dent, with this and other stains on his past, is intent on clearing his name, and he needs Bellamy's sealed memory to do it. But her safeguarded recollections - once unlocked - pose dangers that neither could foresee and put both their lives in peril.
As Bellamy delves deeper into the mystery surrounding Susan's slaying, she discovers disturbing elements of the crime which call into question the people she holds most dear. Haunted by partial memories, conflicted over her feelings for Dent, but determined to learn the truth, she won't stop until she reveals Susan's killer.
That is, unless Susan's killer strikes her first....

Loved the plot
Finding out what she blocked out.
Did a decent female voice.
The book will catch your attention from the very beginning. Sandra did a great job with different twists and turns through out the book.
I love audiobooks. They are so convenient.
I hadn't listened to a Sandra Brown book in a while. It was an okay book. It had all of the stuff that we ROMANCE READERS love, I wasn't crazy about Stephen Lang being the narrator.,
He sounded a bit old for the book. The male voice were alright, but the female voice could have been better.
I like Victor Slezak as the narrator for her books, so I guess that hearing a different narrator just didn't do for me.
I enjoy the audio so I can get wrapped into the book yet do other things.
I liked that not a single person seemed to be innocent.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Yes, I just re listened as the first time was rushed.
Sandra Brown always has a twist, but you must watch for it to get the full enjoyment
Dent our hero, what sass!
I did the first time and missed many of the clues. I just re listened and really enjoyed it much better.
This book was good enough. Many of the parts were predictable and a little cliche. I never felt the urge that I had to listen to it, but never felt like I had to force myself to finish it either.
I loved the story but the narrator did not do a good female voice. It kinda ruined it for me.
Yes, however, the main male character made me uncomfortable with his sexual aggression, even when being told no.
The narrator did not do a good female voice so the main character sounded like a male pretending to be a female.
Do a re-record with a female narrator.
Another excellent story by Sandra Brown. Narration by Stephen Lang made the story even more enjoyable!
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
I enjoyed Dent...he was broody, cranky and lovable.
I have read about 10 Sandra Brown books and plan on reading a lot more - this makes my top 5.
Probably, although I'd prefer a different narrator
Other reviewers complain about why a wealthy woman would write about a painful past under a pseudonym and be upset when she is discovered, blah, blah, blah - while some aspects are a bit of a reach IT IS FICTION and I felt it was a good book overall. It held my interest and there were a lot of twists.
I have long been a Sandra Brown fan but this book just didn't do it for me. The protagonists were either unbelievable (her) or irritating and unlikeable (him). The story line of the female lead writing a fictionalized book based on a traumatic event in her childhood was hard to believe, but if you add in her wealth -- why would she publish it, even under a pseudonym?? Or, if she did write a fictionalized version of the book, wouldn't she have changed a few of the facts for the sake of her terminally ill father (like how her sister was strangled, for instance)? Stephen Lang's narrative voice was great but when he tried to create voices for the characters, he lost me. I simply could not finish listening to this book.
? - it will be a while before I order another SB book, though.
NO. Annoying female voice and the male lead sounded nothing like a hotshot pilot in his late 30s.
Anger and disappointment.
The story had you guessing at every turn!
Listening to two stories in one.
His character portrayals were excellent! I was able to picture each one very clearly!
