Publisher's Summary

Successful photographer Jo Ellen Hathaway thought she had escaped the house long ago. It was where she spent her loneliest years, after her family was shattered by the sudden, unexplained disappearance of her mother.

But now, the sprawling resort off the coast of Georgia haunts her dreams. Even more haunting are the pictures that someone is sending her - strange close-ups, candid shots, and finally, the most shocking and heartbreaking portrait of all: a photograph of her long-lost mother. . . naked, beautiful, and dead.

Jo realizes that it's time to return to Sanctuary. The island inn, still run by her estranged family, brings back painful memories and the troubled relationships she struggled so hard to escape and forget. But it seems that her stalker can even breach the safety of this tiny island, where everybody knows everybody - or thinks they do. And Sanctuary may be the most dangerous place of all.

Excellent !!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely !! I read the hardcover book many years ago but Sandra Burr's narration places the listener AT Sanctuary, among the lives of the characters, in a manner not realized from the printed version.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes - the brilliant revelation of the killers and the healing process of the various family members.

Have you listened to any of Sandra Burr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. As always, she gives a wonderful performance. Many of my audiobook collections were purchased when her name appeared as the narrator because she is one of the very few female readers who sound equally well in both male and female roles.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes - the father/son reconciliation.

Any additional comments?

Buy it, download it and enjoy !!!

Good Suspense, Shocking Revelations!

I would have given this 5 stars, but I had trouble with the heroine's thought processes. Her basic character is smart, strong and fearless, but then she crumbles into a dithering idiot. I felt like there should have been more information given to make such a leap in personality. All the characters have issues, but Jo-Ellen's is too extreme in her self-esteem.

Nora Roberts at her best

I loved this book. I was never exactly sure how it was going to turn out and it continued to keep me wanting for more. I am sad that it is done. I need to find another Nora Roberts soon...

Predictable but a good read

I don't dislike Sandra Burr, but she is also not my first pick a narrator. Then again narration is in the ear of the listener. I have read numerous complaints about Tanya Eby but I find her a delight to listen to. As far as the story goes it was good and I liked the characters, but it was predictable. That being said I will most likely listen to it again some rainy afternoon where I don't want to concentrate to hard.
