Publisher's Summary

After a stalker's attack, rock star Goldy Crossland flees L.A. for her secluded lake house in Northern Washington. Retired from the music business, she hopes to avoid both the press and her psychotic fan. But obscurity leaves her restless, and when a mysterious - and disturbingly handsome - new neighbor moves in, she can't resist spying. Pete Bayer is undeniably attractive, but Goldy quickly realizes there's something strange going on in the log house across the bay. Is he a member of the paparazzi? Or a much more sinister threat? Despite her suspicions, Goldy can't deny her fascination with him. When the press discovers her hideout, it's Pete who offers an escape route, but it comes with a price. Unwillingly drawn into his dangerous world, Goldy soon learns the reason behind Pete's secrecy - and her crush on her charming neighbor takes a deadly turn.

I really enjoyed the story, BUT

As with so many audio books the narrator can ruin it. Sometimes the narration is flat, other times there's over emphasis. The voice for the daughter of incredibly whiney. The voice for Goldie, the main character is only annoying so maybe that's personal preference and might not be so bothersome for another listener. The book is fine, and I got this narration for $1.99 so it may not be worth asking for a refund but I ended up just rereading the book because the narration was so awful.

Romantic suspense

Retiring and hiding rock star meets mysterious neighbor. The rock star jumps to many conclusions about neighbor and events that follow. Typical of many of us. We assume we know what is going on without all the facts. Did not want to stop listening when it was time to get out of the car. Surprising stalker and frustrating daughter added to the problems. Not a fan of intimate details, so wished I could have been able to easily skip that. I look forward to reading or listening to more of Kim Hornsby's books.
