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.

    "Outstanding narrator"

    This was a great story, though the ending kind of rushes up at you.

    The narration was exceptionally good.

    "Very engaging"

    The book starts with the horrific murder and ends with touching love story. Very interesting the suspense is not stretched out and sometimes is just simple its more of a love story in my opinion.
    The fact that i loved this book has a lot to do with a brilliant performance of the narrator. Very pleasant voice and Reading style. Bravo!!!
    All in all I will give 75% to the narrator and 25% to the story for the success of this book. I would recommend this book read it you will not waste your time.

    "Great story, too many foul words"

    This was a great story almost ruined by the horrible language, I would have marked it great if not for that. Very sad that great authors resort to it.

    "more of a romance than mystery"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    Unlikely


    Any additional comments?

    I found this book to be more of romance novel than a mystery novel. The author did a good job with the narrative but it was predictable. The woman who could protect herself very well still needed the man.
