Publisher's Summary

Even a Diamond can be shattered....

After the owner of a security company is murdered, his sharp-edged wife goes on the run. Forced to abandon everything she holds dear - her home, her friends, her job in special ops - she builds a new life for herself in England. As Ashlyn Hale, she meets Luke, a handsome local who makes her realize just how lonely she is.

Yet, even in the sleepy village of Lower Foxford, the dark side of life dogs Diamond’s trail when the unthinkable strikes. Forced out of hiding, she races against time to save those she cares about. But is it too little, too late?

great book!

This book was great. The story was captivating. While listening, you know you are missing pieces of the puzzle, but can't be sure what exactly it is. I still don't feel like we have it all. I can't wait to listen to the next one in hopes of having some of those gaps filled in. As for the narration, it was ok. I have listened to both better and worse. the thing that bothered me most was the American accents being off and that they weren't consistent.

Love the book, but....

I love the book, but not the narrator. She does the English accents great (I assume she is English), but the American and Spanish accents are terrible, and so are the mens voices. I will keep on buying the audio books because I love them, but I do hope the narrator works on her accents and voices, or Elise switches to a better or more experienced narrator.

With that cliffhanger... I had to keep reading!

At first, I thought this book was going to have massive plot holes... boy was I wrong! I loved the wording and narrative style, so I listened on and I am so glad I did. Those questions I had at the start of the book were the last thing from plot holes, they were part of a much larger plot, the heart of the entire Blackwood Security Series. You have to wait to learn those burning questions like "What is with the ex-husband?" or "if she's such a bad ass, why did she run?", it all becomes clear in the later books. So, put a hold on those larger questions, the wait is worth it, and enjoy the story as it goes along. I cannot stop listening! I also must note that Sarah Kempton is such a talented voice actress, I am completely blown away by her!

Mystery woman

If you are looking for a typical book that starts at Point A and goes straight through the alphabet in a linear line, this book is probably not for you. If you'd rather go on a mystery ride of uncertainty and discovery then jump right in. Surviving after a major trauma is hard for anyone but throw in a deadly skill-set and broken heart and anything can happen. I think that the narrator nails the voice for the main character and since the majority of the book is done from her point of view, it worked for me.

As soon as I finished it I downloaded book 2

Loved this, Although the main character is running away she's no damsel in distress. I couldn't put it down and after reading so many other romantic suspense novels I thought I knew where the story was going. Brilliant twists, well written and addictive.
