But now, the sprawling resort off the coast of Georgia haunts her dreams. Even more haunting are the pictures that someone is sending her - strange close-ups, candid shots, and finally, the most shocking and heartbreaking portrait of all: a photograph of her long-lost mother. . . naked, beautiful, and dead.
Jo realizes that it's time to return to Sanctuary. The island inn, still run by her estranged family, brings back painful memories and the troubled relationships she struggled so hard to escape and forget. But it seems that her stalker can even breach the safety of this tiny island, where everybody knows everybody - or thinks they do. And Sanctuary may be the most dangerous place of all.

Definitely !! I read the hardcover book many years ago but Sandra Burr's narration places the listener AT Sanctuary, among the lives of the characters, in a manner not realized from the printed version.
Yes - the brilliant revelation of the killers and the healing process of the various family members.
Yes. As always, she gives a wonderful performance. Many of my audiobook collections were purchased when her name appeared as the narrator because she is one of the very few female readers who sound equally well in both male and female roles.
Yes - the father/son reconciliation.
Buy it, download it and enjoy !!!
I would have given this 5 stars, but I had trouble with the heroine's thought processes. Her basic character is smart, strong and fearless, but then she crumbles into a dithering idiot. I felt like there should have been more information given to make such a leap in personality. All the characters have issues, but Jo-Ellen's is too extreme in her self-esteem.
Gotten a better story
Nora Roberts is a good author and I will purchase others she's written.
I loved this book. I was never exactly sure how it was going to turn out and it continued to keep me wanting for more. I am sad that it is done. I need to find another Nora Roberts soon...
"Fantastic Family Saga"
If you like a book with plenty of drama and secrets in the cupboard, then this book is perfect. This novel follows the lives of the Hatthaway family as they struggle to rebuild their lives after a personal tragedy, but the past comes back to haunt them in more ways than one. This book has romance, drama and mystery and most importantly in my opinion, great characters. I've found Nora Roberts a little hit and miss but this is certainly one of her hits.
"Suspense and too perfect sex"
The ability to describe sex is well known by Nora Robert's readers. In Sanctuary she indulges in so many so perfect intercourses that at least I get bored. Is this "female porn"? There is never a hint of even the slightest problem or difficulty in all those simultaneous perfect orgasms following one after the other. They overshadow the main plot to such a degree that any serious reader/listener must become quite fed up
'Sanctuary' was a delight to listen too. It kept me on the edge of my seat to the very end, trying to work out who was 'the one'.
This was my second audio book. The first being 'Bed of Roses' also by Nora Roberts. Bed of Roses is the second installment of the 'Bride Quartet' I would recommend these two books as well as 'Vision in White': Bride Quartet book one. Truly great reads.
