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
    "The story was a fun summer read. Only there was one thing that spoiled it for me."

    I liked the characters. I thought Elizabeth/Abigail and Brooke were developed nicely and I really liked them. It was fairly light but interesting with some fun plot twists. However, the continued swearing using some pretty intense words and some subject matter did not add to the story and actually was pretty distracting. And with listening it is pretty difficult to skip over. To bad. It was a fun read otherwise.

    Good book but lacked suspense. Had many opportunities for it but never went anywhere, You want a good ending but need the excitement along the way!

    "WOW"

    Never read one Nora Roberts books. But if they are all this good, I will be reading more of Roberts soon.
    The ending is not what I expected.

    "Overall great book!"

    This book kept my interest to the end. The only problem that I had was that it had some swear words. It was hard to listen with the kids.

    "Great Story, Great Narrator!"

    Loved this story from start to finish. The narration was great as well. She really added to the story. I was sad when I reached the end.
