A long-ago act of kindness to a desperate woman changed Dr. Carrie Overton's life forever. Before disappearing, the grateful stranger had given Carrie her newborn son. When the woman is murdered, the secret becomes Carrie's alone.
She has kept both it and her son, Sam, safe for 16 years. But now a friend of Sam's has gone missing. The police believe he's a runaway - until he's found dead. Then another teen disappears, and talk turns to that long-ago murder.
Newcomer Gabriel Cain is asking too many questions, befriending Sam, getting too close. Carrie distrusts him even as she finds herself falling for him. But Gabriel has secrets, too....
Is it time for the lying to end?
The story wasn't very compelling but it could have been better if the narrator had been better. There was no attempt to make the characters sound different from each other. It was like listening to a phone book being recited. Whatever charm or suspense might have been in the story, and I don't think there was much, was obliterated by the narration.

This was a wonderful conclusion to Maggie Shayne's Shadow Falls series. The story built nicely on the first two and was well written and fast paced from beginning to end. This is a series you'll want to pick up!
