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.

    "Great book!"

    This book was mind catching from the start! It kept me wondering how things would work out in the end!
    It had suspense, humor, excitement, and love. I found myself laughing aloud more than once!
    Loved it!

    "Crime, romance, thriller!"

    I really enjoyed this story. It had a little of everything for a great summer read, including a very strong and smart female main character. Just the right amount of romance and sexual tension so that it didn't overshadow the thriller. I really hope there is a sequel.

    Story
    "I'm a guy and this is Nora Roberts"

    So I was pleasantly surprised at just how much she got right . . .from a guys perspective. The characters were well developed. The location was depicted so well I could imagine being there. I am still not a big fan of female voice actors speaking the man's part but Julia did a fine job of it and I would listen to her again. While it is a chicks book, its Not just a chick book. The story line had plenty of action and it held my interest. I hate blood bath or senseless killings. So I was pleased that the one short part of the story involving both was handled quickly and without the gore.

    "Great for the beach"

    I enjoyed the storyline. The details set the scene while enough excitement kept the pages turning, at a nice rate. I looked forward to my elliptical workouts knowing that I had this story to look forward to.
