Publisher's Summary

Lucy Baker walks away from her high-flying legal career when she successfully defends yet another heinous criminal. Almost a year after her life-changing decision, Lucy has never been happier. Leaving New York City for the suburbs, tending her garden and her dog, Lucy is making future plans with her fiancé, Jonathan St. Clair - and getting acquainted with her neighbors, including the handsome, exasperating one next door, Wylie Wilson.

But when FBI special agents confront Lucy with shocking revelations about her fiancé's secret double life, everything about her husband-to-be is cast in suspicion. Recovering from a freak accident that has left her with a heightened sense of intuition, and getting closer than she ever dreamed to Wylie, Lucy must determine who to trust - and fast, before someone breaks down her defenses and targets her....

Critic Reviews

"Fern Michaels's characters are real and endearing, her prose so natural that it seems you are witnessing the story rather than reading about it." ( Los Angeles Times)

Should have been called the LOUSY NEIGHBOUR !

It wasn't very plausible - it was an 'eye-rolling' unbelievable story with a very slow narrator. Sorry, I don't want to waste any more time on this than I have already - and could only get through it by doubling the speed.

Worth the credit? Absolutely NOT !!

Boring

Story line bland and boring. The worst narration I've ever heard, had to struggle to get through this book. When listening to a book the narrator can make or break it. This was broken from the start!

Narrator was horrible!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Narrator ruined the entire book for me, wish I never got it on Audible! Should have just read. Would love my credit back on this one.

Iffy

The narration left something to be desired. The characters voices all sounded very similar, male & female. It took away from the impact of the story. Almost made it boring. Wish I would've read the book myself instead of having it audio. Liked the story, just not narration.

Disappointed

I was so frustrated listening to this book. I agreed with Johnathan several times that Lucy was stupid. However, I believe more experienced readers could have made up for some of the stupidity. Fern Michaels is one my favoriate authors and this book just wasn't up to her normal standards.

REALLY bad narrator!!

The sample they let you hear sounds fine. When you start listening to the book, her reading is weak, powerless. There is no enthusiasm, it's very monotoned.
It's really too bad, she ruined a good Fern Michaels book!
