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....

The toughest moment was the lead character's time with her daughter - very difficult to listen to - I had to stop multiple times.
I enjoyed listening to this book. The story was very good. I wish Sandra Brown didn't have to use such bad language in her books. That is a turn off for me. But, I did like the story.
Story was well written and engaging.
Love story a bit odd and unbelievable.
Yes - good writer
Good voice and differentiation with characters.
You can figure out the ending early on in the story. After that, the story was predictable. The rash of almost gotya's is too much to take. The sex scenes are too detailed in certain ways. Is that really how women think about sex? Or is she writing how she thinks men thinks about sex? Whatever it is, I didnt find it exciting, but kind of nauseating. The details about flying were incorrect.
I enjoyed this book. As alway, Sandra Brown has created an entertaining and sexy story.
I enjoyed all of the book.
Riveting in places.
All were done well
The thrilling end of the story
I really enjoyed the visuals created in my mind by the characters discibed and their actions in the story.
I was surprised when the mystery was solved. Did not consider that person a suspect. Did not like the graghic sex. Women like a little to be left to the imagaination.
I would have left out about a third of it in the middle. Thought the story dragged there.
Yes, but the narrator did not differentiate enough with the different voices. I had trouble sometimes figuring out who was talking.
Yes, it was a good story. Just slow in places.
