Abby Foster just wants a quiet, normal life. The high school teacher left everything about her past behind when she moved to the mountains of Pennsylvania, but only three years after surviving a brutal attack, Abby awakes in an icy river, facing death once again. This time, though, she doesn't have to face it alone - if she can manage to trust the sexy cop who just risked his life to save her.
Officer Ethan Hale's gut tells him there's more to Abby's "accident" than meets the eye. When his investigation uncovers a fresh string of murders tied to her old case, he's driven to do anything to keep Abby safe. But Abby's former assailant is in prison, so who else wants her dead? As the killer shows no sign of stopping, Abby has no choice but to trust Ethan with the truth about her past…and any hope she has for a future.

I listened to about 3/4's of this book when the main character pulled the ultimate bone headed - too stupid to live - action. I can tolerate a lot of things in a book - but I cannot stand a dumb character. This chick is dumb as a brick....I couldn't even finish the book.
Not rely on an obvious - too stupid to live - action by the main character to advance the plot. I like smart women who know when it's time to let the professionals take over. Brave is one thing - stupid quite another. These newer authors need to go back and read Linda Howard, Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb, etc. They know how to write a good plot without reducing the main character to stupidity to advance said plot.
She was fine.
****Spoiler Alert*** When you are sleeping with a cop - why would you abandon his protection to go off and play detective thinking you could save the day when there are dead bodies stacking up like cord wood and you have no clue how to locate the bad guys. Stupid is as stupid does I suppose. I have enjoyed the other books in this series - this one bombed.....
Good entertainment. Was not crazy about the narrator at first, but it got better as the story went along. I will definitely try more from this author.
The narrator was pretty good but the plotline is getting predictable... a love story imtertwined with danger, a hot hero and a dog. Hopefully the next book changes it up.
