Summary
In her stunning 200th novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts proves why no one is better “when it comes to flawlessly fusing high-stakes suspense with red-hot romance' (Booklist, starred review).

Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth Fitch finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive.

Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance security systems designer, her own protection is supplemented by a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. Unfortunately, that seems to be the quickest way to get attention in a tiny southern town.

The mystery of Abigail Lowery and her sharp mind, secretive nature and unromantic viewpoint intrigues local police chief Brooks Gleason, on both a personal and professional level. And while he suspects that Abigail needs protection from something, Gleason is accustomed to two-bit troublemakers, not the powerful and dangerous men who are about to have him in their sights.

And Abigail Lowery, who has built a life based on security and self-control, is at risk of losing both.

I couldn’t love this book more. I found myself caring about the characters, enjoying the suspense, and laughing out loud on occasion. The narrator is incredibly skillful and the story is engaging and a fun ride from beginning until end.

Was interesting, unique, the only part I wished wasn’t so long and drawn out was the in between the “new life” and her old life with brooks/ how he fit into the storyline. Felt like that had unnecessary drawn out details, but in the end I loved it

Another excellent installment from this author. I gave a 4 star rating only because I felt the plot spent too much time building the love story as opposed to the take down of the criminals making the eventual take down feel too easy.

Excellent. Nora has done it again! When I had to stop for some reason, I could hardly wait to return listening.

I am a great fan of Nora Roberts and this Audio did not disappoint. I broke my rule of only listening while driving because I wanted desperately to know „What next?“ and consequently stayed up into the early hours of the morning to find out. Very well narrated.

Great book. It kept me entertained throughout. The narrator for Elizabeth sounded a little too robotic at times but it kind of played into the characters personality.

The beginning of the book was very good. It had me interested and very focused. The middle of the book kind of dragged. Seemed like more of a love story. If you can stick with it, it’s an enjoyable listen.

It’s was good I wish there was a bit more action like her previous books but I liked the twist. So i gave it 4 for being good but not great.

I enjoyed listening to this. Especially because the narrator did a great job. There were just one or two voices that "bugged" me. It not a world class novel it's just a really good easy listening book
