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.

    "Caution: addicting"

    I purchased this book to listen to on my long drive to work. Can't tell you how many times I couldn't leave my car once in my work place parking lot. Great story, with great narration. Highly recommend.

    Story
    "Brilliant!"

    This is now my favorite book, surpassing Little Women which has been my favorite since 1974. The main character is so likable, that's saying a lot coming from a cynical person. And the narrator nails it! The ending was brilliant! I never listen to books twice because I hate redundancy. But I will eventually listen to this one again!

    "Sweet Justice"

    The story drew me in right away and I had a hard time putting it down, eager to find out what was going to happen next. The narrator brought each of the characters to life. The ending was a bit rushed but also did not expect how the author chose to end it. Very clever.

    "Brilliant!"

    First book I read by Nora Roberts and i absolutely loved it.
    The story was perfect, I couldn't put it down. The dialogues and monologues flow, it was enough substance to keep me engaged.
    I totally recommend it!

    "Good Story/Bad Language"

    Good story, too many F-bombs for my taste. Granted there are cops & Russian mafia, but I'm not into foul language.
