Publisher's Summary

In a chilling new thriller from New York Times best-selling author Wendy Corsi Staub, one woman looking for love online is entangled in a killer's terrifying scheme...

In the moonlight, shovelfuls of earth fall on a wooden crate at the bottom of a deep pit. Soon the hole will be filled and covered over with leaves, erasing all trace of the victim below, waking to the horror of being buried alive...

Newly divorced Gaby Duran isn't really expecting to find her soul mate on a dating site like InTune. She just needs a distraction from pining over her ex-husband, Ben, and the happy marriage they once had. And she's wise enough to know that online, the truth doesn't always match the profile. Almost everyone lies a little - or a lot.

But Gaby quickly discovers there is much more at stake than her lonely heart. Local singles are going missing after making online connections. And a predator is searching again for the perfect match. One who will fulfill every twisted desire... or die trying.

Couldn't bring myself to finish it.

Too slow and narrator did a horrible job with the Latina accents. Didn't bother to finish it.

Boring

The book was boring. The characters were so annoying and repetitive. It's like they were just saying the same thing over and over in slightly diff ways throughout the book. The ending was lame and the plot expected.
Whoever produced this book made no attempt at pausing between characters and chapters and it was very hard to follow which character was being discussed. Literally no pause between subjects, probably fine for a read but needed editing for an audio book.

Completely unexpected twists.

Loved it! So I'm just doing my thing, listening to this book, then BAM! New information is revealed that makes my eyes pop open wide and all I can do is blink with surprise!

One of the worst books I have listened to.

I unfortunately found this novel very hard to get through. The storyline would abruptly jump from character to character leaving me wondering at times what was happening and who was 'speaking'. I also found it predictable and the main characters unlikable. I almost found myself rooting for the villain!
