Jason has lost everything. He finally has the college to himself. There isn't anybody from his past to ruin the character he’s created for himself anymore. It’s just him. The funeral is only a few days away. He blames himself. He can hardly see through the darkness of the guilt he’s feeling. Then there’s Lisa. Lisa is the light in the darkness. Lisa is the way back to the daylight. Lisa is the girl that he’s always been looking for, and he can't believe it’s taken him so long to realize that.

This book didn't end the way I thought it would. I personally thought that the guy would end up feeling so bad for not being able to save his friend that he would do something horrible. Not the case. Instead the ending decided to throw a moral in it. Going to stop there and just say I loved this series of books. I don't want to give it away.

I also could sit and listen to the narrator for hours. His voice is smoothing, clear and you can feel the story through it.

I love this author. even though this may not be one of my favorites and it could be because Christmas is a bad holiday for me. but everyone has one of those neighbors that seems to pay the electric company an outrageous amount over the holidays. in this book someone decides to take care of the neighborhood payor. lol! the main character joins her brother to solve the murder so that Christmas isn't ruined.

House flippers Jack and Juniper agree to lend and help prep their latest purchase - the Doctor's House, an old Victorian mansion - to act as the eerie setting for the town's Halloween bash. They're expecting to find missing floor boards and pesky bats, not the ghostly specter of the murdered doctor's wife. But when the head of the council is found stuffed in a trunk in the attic, it appears history is repeating.

I think that these two narrators are my favorite. I could listen to their voices all day. Wow I couldn't believe the things that Rachel and Grant went through. Talk about insane. Not sure if I would have been able to make it through everything. Thank you Stacy again for another amazing book.

The narrator is awesome. I love the sound of the voice. The book has one 's emotions going from happy to sad to suspense to surprise. It feels like you're right there with the characters. I think if I had to pick my favorite character, it would be Tina. She is outspoken, good natured, supportive, fun and thoughtful.

I loved this book. hailey and Devon are put through the ringer but still come out victorious. there was a short period where I thought that maybe it would end on a cliff but thank God it didn't.

this author is one of my favorites. she knows how to catch her audience's attention and keep it. I also commend her in the work she does with domestic violence. thank you very much for your support.

It's been three weeks since Haley Rosewood and Devon Carrington won the lottery. Most people would picture their days taking them from one exciting journey to another and their nights filled with champagne and caviar. But Haley is trying to find a new home, a place to start her business, and a way to keep control of her life. Devon is only trying to help her, but it seems that everything he does just pushes Haley's buttons in the wrong way. When a new contract comes into his security company, it threatens not only the future of his company but Haley and Allison's welfare

at first I thought this book was going to drive me crazy with hailey always over thinking things and reading the wrong things into situations. just when you think things are going to be okay, bam. something really big happens and the book ends. it makes you wanting the next one. I can't wait to find out what happens next. I love the suspense.
