Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Romance, 2013

Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever.

Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems. Her own security is supplemented by a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. Unfortunately, that seems to be the quickest way to get attention in a tiny southern town.

The mystery of Abigail Lowery intrigues local police chief Brooks Gleason, on both a personal and a professional level. Her sharp, logical mind, her secretive nature, her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something, even if he doesn’t know what - and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

Accustomed to two-bit troublemakers, Gleason is about to walk into the sights of very powerful and dangerous men. And Abigail Lowery, who has built a life based on security and self-control, is at risk of losing both.

    Story
    "Surprisingly Engrossing"

    I'm not a fan of romance novels but this mix of suspense and romance was irresistible. The main character, a socially awkward, literal, almost Asperger's afflicted heroine is interesting and the interactions with her romantic interest, the charming, easy going lovable chief of police is laugh out loud hilarious. The story is unexpectedly heartfelt but not sappy. Knowing there had to be a culminating of action was deliciously anticipated. A little predictable, yes, but what romance isn't. This is more entertaining than most. The characters are likable, every single one, including the goofy new age hippy parents of the police chief. Nora Roberts, good job!
