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)
Over all I enjoyed the suspense of the story but not the descriptive love making. And also the occasional F bomb. I would listening along enjoying the story and then those two things had me thinking , do I want to finish this book? But the story had me sucked in. For these reasons, I don't recommend this book
I am a southern girl, but the southern accents in this audio drove me crazy. I listened to the end. I probably would get past the first few chapter if reading.... I normally like Sandra Brown.....
Loved it. Sat in my car at work, being tardy, just to hear the last 18 minutes. Sweet love. Probably more of a "chick" book... Or not so chauvinistly' put: romantic. Signed : a girl
I love listening to audibles !
good story with great storyline! however , the worse narration I've Hearn in a while ......it totally ruined the story for me. JOYCE BEANS impression of a man s woice ....... ZERO
This could have been a great book it had an interesting plot line. However, the somewhat graphic sex scenes where a little much.
The character of the best friend Ricky Due was ridiculous and I was disappointed because she could have been an interesting character. instead she came off as cheesy and was too sex obsessed.
narrating was awful. story just OK. Not even close to her standards. Victor Slazak is tons better. this narrator sounded ridiculous door such a smart and strong main character. it totally distracted me from story.
maybe - i read Friction and thought it was good - so bought this one - but the voice of the main character was awful and while the story line was good - the exaggerated and cliched over dramatization was annoying - too many unbelievable parts ... no way that smart lawyer would fall for that idiot much less marry him, no way she would wander through the woods at night, ...
looking for it now
the main female character was to soft and whiney
the plot was good
