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.

    "Best She'sEver Written"

    Nora, please write another just like this one! There was just enough suspense and just enough romance. The development of Liz was intelligent. I would love to be that smart.

    "The witness"

    Good story, fast moving, didn't want to put it down
    Sometimes difficult to determine which character was speaking but for the most part very good.
    Loved the ending.

    "Worth listening to and great storyline"

    I loved the story but there were so many other things happening that had nothing to do with the main storyline that it made the book pretty long.
    I think the ending was a little too uneventful. I had already thought in my mind different exciting endings that could happen and the actual one was a let down. But overall it was great reading (listening)

    "One of Nora Roberts Better Books"
    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    Julia Whelan is a great narrator. She embodied the character well.


    Any additional comments?

    Nora Roberts is one of those authors that I have a love/hate relationship with her work. Some of her books are great! Some of them, just eh. You never know what you're going to get with her. This one was pretty good. I liked it from the beginning. Likeable characters and a plot that moved at a good speed. If you like this one, I'll also recommend Carolina Moon.

    "Entertaining"

    Somewhat unrealistic, but entertaining nonetheless. I'm not a fan of romance novels but Roberts strikes a nice balance of plot and romance.

    "Could not stop listening."

    I could not stop listening to this book. The narrator did a wonderful job with the voices, her inflections, and the pace. The story had suspense, intrigue and a sexy romance. Who could ask for anything more in a book.

    "Great story - too much romance novel."

    Great story, but had to fast forward through the painful, at times nauseating, detailed "feelings" descriptions. My first novel by this author. I should have recognized the writer for her romance style writing and not have relied on the inside the flap description.
