Publisher's Summary

It was a desperate plan. But Mary Grace Winters knew the only way to save herself and her child from her abusive cop husband was to stage their own deaths. Now all that remains of their former life is at the bottom of a lake.

Armed with a new identity in a new town, she and her son have found refuge hundreds of miles away. As Caroline Stewart, she has almost forgotten the nightmare she left behind nine years ago. She is even taking a chance on love with Max Hunter, a man with wounds of his own. But her past is about to collide with the present when her husband uncovers her trail and threatens her hard-won peace. Step by step, he's closing in on her - and everything and everyone she loves.

Contains mature themes.

Eh!

I loved this book in paperback and on my kindle. However, the man reading this book is horrible. No man should ever read Karen Rose books. Suggestion, 2 readers, woman and man, every time. The reader sounds like Jimmy Fallen when he impersonates a woman. Really bad!

All too real!

Loved it. Storyline was all too real. The characters came to life in what is sadly reality for far too many families. Delivered a true-to-life look at the devastation of lives impacted by domestic violence and struggles faced by the victims. Nothing better than a riveting mystery combined with a passionate love story. BRAVO

Waited for years for this to be an audio book!

Waited for years for this to be an audio book! The narration was just okay but the story was just as good as the book I read so many years ago. Did not disappoint.
