    Suspense simmers in the suburb of Walnut Hills as Kate tries to figure out who killed her recently divorced friend Mona Sterling. A bottle of expensive scotch and an empty vial of sleeping pills convince the police that her death is a suicide. But Kate has her doubts.

    Good story horrible narration

    The narrator spoiled this book for me. The story line is passable. It was just enough to keep my attention. Unfortunately I knew the ending before it ..Show More »

    Kate Austen has always had a soft spot for people in trouble, but stopping to help stranded motorist Sheryl Ann Martin is a terrible mistake. With her dead husband in the trunk and her killer boyfriend at her side, Sheryl Ann is in trouble. And so is Kate; held hostage in a remote cabin by a couple who can't afford to let her live. Kate's only hope is a desperate run for freedom, but when she is rescued, her nightmare is just beginning.

    Very Good

    Once I got over Kate's stupidity for putting herself in a really bad situation, I really enjoyed this book.
