Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked car, and a mixture of courage and fear gets her to the top of a ravine, where she flags down help. But she doesn't dare reveal her true identity to the authorities. Instead, she plans her immediate escape. Her perilous flight begins.
The best public defender in Prosper, South Carolina, Kendall had stumbled upon the town's chilling secret - and her marriage to one of the town's most powerful men has become a living hell. Now Kendall is a terrified mother trying to save her child's life...a reluctant witness who knows too much about an insidious evil...and a woman surrounded by forces that will stop at nothing to protect what is "theirs".

"This page-turner is a must on any summer beach reading list and a testament to Brown's gifts as a talented storyteller." (Today)
"The push-pull generated by John's memory loss and Kendall's terror sparks a sexual tension that is deftly and vividly consummated, and secrets keep popping out until the last page. Brown's forte is glitch-free, all-over-the-map plotting, and her take on white-trashy behavior pushes just the right buttons." (Publishers Weekly)
I enjoyed the overall story that kept me on edge until the end. The mysterious secret was a bit anticlimactic. I felt that the author we wrapped up the story without the richness of the rest of their story.
I think this is the first Sandra Brown book I have listened to. It will not be my last. It southern drawl was a bit over done for a few characters but getting past that the story gets a check the romance gets a check plus and ending leaves a big smile on your face
Yes, great story and great narrator.
I like Nora Roberts ability to write such different stories, have not ran into a "cookie cutter" problem yet.
not sure for either one
The narration was horrible specially for the men's voices. I just couldn't finish listening and will have to return it.
disappointment and not being able to finish the book
Say something about yourself!
I am a fan of Sandra Brown. I read some of the excellent reviews for the book and expected a good story. Unfortunately the narration of the central character makes this unpleasant for me. I'm southern and we do not sound like this! I was unable to finish the story. I might purchase the kindle version before I call the story a total loss. ASAP(as southern as possible)
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
The story was so visual it made the characters come alive for me.
The twists and turns and surprises kept me reading longer than I should have. I finished before my sister so I backed it up and listened to the second half of the book again.
Thank you to Sandra Brown and Joyce Bean for this wonderful book.
