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.

    "Fun read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, fun read. Haven't read Nora Roberts in years, and had forgotten how accessible and easy to read she is. You can relax into this book.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    Clear, articulate, and exactly what this story needed. Will look for Julia Whelan as a narrator again.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Audible recommendations for bring Nora Roberts back to me!

    "Not really for me"

    The story began well, with the young girl getting into trouble. But honestly, this kind of romantic story is not for me. She is so smart, and he is so good and honest, even the dog is something out of the world, the whole plot makes me puke. Nora Roberts check.

    "Best Nora Roberts Novel"

    This is my favourite Nora Roberts Novel ever and I have read many.
    The characters were wonderful, the story not as predictable as some of her books have become and I have listened to it more than once already.
    This novel and The Search are my top 2 favourites of Nora Roberts.

    "Very intriguing"

    Really enjoyed this presentation. The narrator used enough difference intonation that I always knew who was speaking which I find very important. I read reviews saying this book was not up to Nora's standards but I was captivated from the beginning. Highly recommend for any Nora Roberts fans!

    "Love this book!"

    This book has to be in my top 5. I've lost count of the amount of times I've listened to it. You just want to give Elizabeth a huge when she's 16 and slap her mum, you also have to love a dog called Bert.

    Everything about this book is great. An original story line, relatable characters and bad guys galore. And to top it off an A+ performance by Julia Whelan. I wish Nora wrote more books like this one.
