Publisher's Summary

Teenagers Sheridan Kohl and Jason Wyatt were parked at the lake in Whiterock, Tennessee, when a stranger wearing a ski mask shot them both. Sheridan lived but Jason died - and the stranger was never caught. Even though Sheridan's family moved away right afterward, she's never been able to put the crime behind her.

And now that "someone" doesn't want her to come home.

Because of a new development in the case, Sheridan returns to Whiterock. But when she's attacked a second time, it's only because of Jason's stepbrother, Cain Granger, that she survives - and Cain's the last person she wants to face. If not for their history, if not for her, Jason wouldn't have been in that parked car.

Cain knows that whoever killed his brother probably isn't a stranger at all. But figuring out that person's identity is easier said than done - especially since the killer seems to be taunting them both: "watch me".

Glad it was on sale

Uh oh. This was pretty awful and had that "first draft" feeling. For a book marketed as romantic suspense, I have to say it fails in both categories. The leads talked at each other and I never felt any kind of connection, so the inevitable declarations of love had nothing to back it up. The suspense? Well, it was obvious who the killer was the first time he spoke and any reasonably intelligent 5-year-old would have picked up on it. On top of all that, the narrator gave the heroine an annoyingly perky voice and the hero a too-slow drawl that made him sound dull witted. Can't imagine I'll be trying any more Novak or anything else read by this narrator.

Exactly what the other reviewer said...

I wish I had read her review before purchasing but she was spot on! I didn't care what happened to any of the characters and the heroes slow drawl grated on my nerves the suspense just wasn't there

I tried to like it

I hate to give a harsh critique, so I'll try not to do that here. Maybe it was the narrator (she has a nice tone, but sounded more like a news broadcaster), maybe it was the outrageousness of some of the events (the police alone gave me a headache), but I just couldn't get into this. It was a struggle.

Fairly good book and storyline

This book was pretty good although Cain seem to lack the interest to draw me in. He was far to distance. But I like how Brenda has a way of catching you off guard with who the villain is.
