When a comatose Jane Doe is found in a local cemetery, sexually assaulted, mutilated, and nearly drowned, Angie is struck by the eerie similarities to her earlier unsolved rapes. Could he be back?

For Mary Sullivan Christmas is, and always has been, about family. And this year is no different. As she awaits the arrival of her eight children and their partners at the cottage in Lake Tahoe, she hangs the ornaments that they made for her over the years. Each decoration brings with it a tide of memories, all of which she holds dear to her heart. But when she comes across the oldest ornament, the one her beloved husband, Jack, gave her on their very first Christmas together, Mary is immediately swept back.

There were a bunch of twists, turns, and surprises. I really liked this book! I thought the readers did a fine job. I've certainly heard a lot worse.
If you like Lisa Gardner's other books, don't listen to the negative reviews. I was a little wary, but I'm very glad that I bought it!

I've enjoyed this series & really like getting updates on the previous couples & families.
I wish the previous narrator read this book. This narrator is monotone & doesn't change her voice very well between characters. Often, I had to rewind to figure out who was speaking.
