Lucinda Hamilton settles down in sleepy Reverie, South Carolina, because she's running from the troubles of her past. But when her dangerous ex-husband evades law enforcement, she fears that no amount of running will ever make her safe again. Two women are determined to keep Lucinda's past at bay - the mysterious young nurse living on the other side of Lucinda's duplex, who won't even tell Lucinda her name, and Ardie Brown, an ex-marine who's recently moved back to Reverie herself. It's hard for Lucinda to trust either one; it's even harder to admit that she's falling for both of them.

The recording quality was marginal at best. Some parts sounded like an old cassette tape that was worn out. The actual narration was very good.

The story was good but way, WAY different from what I expected- not in a bad way, just different. Give it a listen. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

I really enjoyed the story - it was great. The characters were well developed. The narration was not bad at all, but the editing was almost laughable. You could tell every single time they dubbed in something. Also, many, many parts sounded like they were recorded in a shipping container! Overall, the storyline made up for the editing, but it could have been so much better.

Sorry to say the narration was lacking. The USA English accents were just odd at best. It was difficult to tell who was “talking” and it was a poor imitation of a Southeast US accent, but the story was in California. The story wasn’t bad.

It was like listening to junior high drama with adults. Nothing really involving racing downhill - just sort of a story line filler. Petty drama and very predictable.

Original story with enjoyable characters. I do agree with another review that the narration is a bit hard at first (leading lady sounds like a dude) but it is easy to get over once you are a bit into the story.

While the story is not original, this version is well played. The characters are believeable and likeable. While one characters coming to terms with loving another woman seems to be a bit too easy, it does little to distract from the plot. The narration is good.

The characters are likeable and we'll devloped. It would be nice if this was first in a series, and the story is unique enough to support another book. If you are a Kay Scarpetta fan, you will find the main character similar to "Lucy".

The story keeps you engaged and it progresses quickly. The narration is pretty good and much better than in other books narrated by the same person.
