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.

    "Fantastic story except......"
    Would you listen to The Witness [Brilliance Audio Edition] again? Why?

    Definitely


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Off and on...some parts weren't like that but were still great.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    Excellent, as usual.


    Any additional comments?

    Personal preference for me....too much descriptive sex. This is true of all this author's books, at least the ones I've read or heard. I just fast forward, because I enjoy her stories. I love the authors who are so brilliant at letting me know what's happening, without describing it step by step. Again, personal preference.

    "the witness"

    Fairly interesting story, but i got really tired of how smart Abigail was and her long,drawn out explanations. Must say, i would like to have a perfect boyfriend like Brooks Gleason!

    "Captivating"

    Very interesting premise, didn't think I would like main character at first but she became understandable and compelling. Romance was good between to different personalities.

    "Intriguing"

    This story keeps you involved. very well performed. Enjoyable from start to finish. Intriguing, without being riveting, keeping it relaxing with a just right quality.

    "Could have been better"

    A fine love story, well-narrated, but the set up really could have had more suspense/conflict. I enjoyed the build up of the love story, but felt like I was waiting for something to happen in the action/suspense department. The fact that the (spoiler) protagonists main drive was to avoid being discovered and put down the bad guys fell rang hollow after a certain point, as no one ever found her. Ending was quite anticlimactic.
