Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Romance, 2013

Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever.

Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems. Her own security is supplemented by a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. Unfortunately, that seems to be the quickest way to get attention in a tiny southern town.

The mystery of Abigail Lowery intrigues local police chief Brooks Gleason, on both a personal and a professional level. Her sharp, logical mind, her secretive nature, her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something, even if he doesn’t know what - and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

Accustomed to two-bit troublemakers, Gleason is about to walk into the sights of very powerful and dangerous men. And Abigail Lowery, who has built a life based on security and self-control, is at risk of losing both.

    "A good listen"

    I am not a fan of romance stories....normally. However this story about a teenager cast into a very dangerous set of circumstances captured my attention and kept it. Well done and a strong narrator make this an enjoyable read.

    "Give Nora a Try"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I thought I would give Nora a try because she sells so many books! The book started out very well. Then bang- boring!! I skipped chapters to see if the story would pick up again. Could not finish!

    Story
    "Can you cut the swearing"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Julia Whelan?

    No. I was very disappointed after hearing such great reviews of Nora Roberts novels. Her story line is good, but seriously the swearing took so much away from it that I quit listening.


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Julia Whelan does a great job. I enjoyed listening to her voice.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story line is good, just drop the f word.

    "Narrator"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I'm not even done listening and it's very rare I don't like the narrator but I didn't like the way the woman narrator talked like a man. I think a real mans voice would have made the performance a lot better. I hate to give a negative comment but I really am finding the narration of the men in the book very distracting.
