Publisher's Summary

A Bustle Perfect Vacation Read

USA Today best seller

From number one New York Times best-selling author Lisa Jackson comes a new novel of nerve-jangling suspense as a woman haunted by guilt realizes that nothing can be trusted - not even her own memory....

If you think someone is out to get you....

There are people in Edgewater, Oregon, who think that 20 years ago, Rachel Gaston got away with murder. But Rachel still has no idea how a foolish teenaged game turned deadly — or who replaced her soft pellet air gun with a real weapon. When a figure jumped out at her from the darkness, she fired without thinking. By the time she recognized her half-brother, Luke, it was too late. Blood bloomed around his chest.... 

And someone really is....

Rachel’s horrifying dreams about that night continue. Her anxiety contributed to her divorce from Detective Cade Ryder, though he blames himself, too. And now, as Rachel’s high school reunion nears, she feels her imagination playing tricks on her. She’s sure that there’s a hint of unfamiliar cologne in the air. That someone is tailing her car. Watching her home....

Then you're not paranoid....

She’s right to be scared. And as connections surface between a new string of murders and Luke’s death, Rachel realizes there’s no escaping the past. And the truth may be darker than her worst fears....

This was an awesome book!

I always like Jackson’s writing style but she out did herself here. The story was great and twisted, the characters where good to hate and the ending was really freaky. I was well entertained!

Good once it gets going

Took a while for me to get the characters straight but eventually you will! At first the names are too similar but as the book progresses it becomes easier to follow

Worth listening!!!

I LOVE this book. I was hooked almost immediately and can’t wait to fond out how it all ends! I love the characters, finding them believable, lovable, and perfectly flawed, I could relate easily. It was a great performance.

A suspenseful thriller

It was difficult to stop listening to this book it caught my attention and kept me eager to hear more. Narration was excellent which added to an already gripping mystery of lies, murder n paranoid... recommend

Couldn’t wait to be done with this author

The story line was okay but I could not wait for the book to be over. The author gave a new twist to the story plot but the story was so drawn out and just way too long for the actual storyline. The narrator made the book almost intolerable, I honestly could not wait to stop listening to her talk, she made listening to this book like pulling teeth. Horrible narration, especially when she got to any part where a sound is made. Anytime the narrator did the sound for a gun, scrapping along the floor or a cricking door, I wanted to stop listening as it was so immature and something that a child’s book would play. Would not recommend this book, pass on this one.

strange

This story had an unlikely premise, so many evil, annoying characters. The narrator did a good job.

Who is Lisa Jackson always this bad(spoilers)

I am not sure if I’ve ever seen a main character that I dislike as much as I as disliked Rachel. Never have I heard, as one review were already noted, so many weak, frantic, and hyperventilating women. That was almost as bad, as narrators that whistle through their teeth, as they read.I could have cared less if Cade and Rachel reunited, felt no chemistry between the two. What kind of wife, drops a husband, because after he was nearly fatally wounded, she sees his partner holding his hand?!!! Seems to me she had no investment in their marriage at all. Now on the rotten kids. What can you say about them, nasty little brats that need a good butt whipping. Only part interesting was Lilah’s little flip to nastiness at the end.
