The gorgeous exec has become entangled in some potentially deadly business: Someone has e-mailed her a graphic crime-scene photo - and the victim is no stranger.
Regan suspects that the trouble started when she agreed to help a journalist friend expose a shady self-help guru who preys on lonely, vulnerable women. In fact, the smooth-as-an-oil-slick Dr. Lawrence Shields may have been responsible for the death of one of his devotees. Hoping to find some damning evidence, Regan attends a Shields seminar.
At the gathering, the doctor persuades his guests to partake in an innocent little "cleansing" exercise. He asks them to make a list of the people who have hurt or deceived them over the years, and poses the question: Would your world be a better place if these people ceased to exist? Treating the exercise as a game, Regan plays along.
The experience is all but forgotten - until the first person on Regan's list turns up dead. Shock turns to horror when other names from the list start to surface as corpses, and a harrowing tango of desire and death is set into motion. Now brutal murders seem to stalk Regan's every move - and a growing attraction to Alec may compromise her safety, while stirring up tender emotions she thought she could no longer feel. Yet as the danger intensifies and a serial killer circles ever closer, Regan must discover who has turned her private revenge fantasies into grisly reality.

I adore Julie Garwood and the other books in this series were great. Joyce Bean needs to relax with her accents. This is the second book she has ruined for me. I can't listen to this over and over.
The story line didn't really play out how Reagan fell for Theo she just looked at him and was in love.
Yes but I am wary of what accent she will do next.
I would have added not cut.
No. The narration was horrible.
Joyce Bean would have been great if she just got rid of the fake Boston accent. That was bad.
Great story and plot but bad narration.
Say something about yourself!
I've listened to a lot of books narrated by Joyce Bean and like her pretty much, however her Boston accent for Alec was so bad, she really should not have even tried. It was distracting.
Another great book by Julie Garwood. Whether its historical or present day romance, she always tells a good story.
I have read this book and very much enjoyed it. I've been looking for the audiobook and was excited when I found it. However, the narration was terrible which ruined it. I don't recommend the audiobook, but I do recommend reading the book
I tried and tried, but could not get through an hour of this audiobook. As a non-audio book it's probably mediocre but not terrible -- the sort of thing to skim through while watching TV or listening to the radio. As an audio book, it seemed to me to be very tedious. Also, I must say that the reader's voice was annoying -- sweet and childish -- not pleasant to me, but perhaps just the thing for someone else.
This book drags on and on and on! It goes from scene and has no real rhythm or reason. The women who is the narrator is horrible!! I want to find something nice to say but I can't find anything other than I am glad it ended. What a waste of money and time!!! How can I get my money and time back????
After loving this book when I read it I was excited to hear the audio version. I feel the narrator completely ruined it for me. This audio was a waste of money and I would NEVER listen to it again due to her voice and the awful way she portrayed the main character, Alec Buchanan as well as a few of the minor characters.
