Secrets have been kept from Shannon. Dark, dangerous, fatal secrets.

'She is one of the best' Harlan Coben
THE FINAL BOOK IN THE SERIES, AFTER SHE'S GONE, IS AVAILABLE NOW
Although branded a "romantic suspense" novelist, Jackson keeps the sex to a minimum for the better in his latest. Featuring two secondary characters from 2005's Deep Freeze (Travis Settler and his teenage daughter, Dani), the detailed plot revolves around Shannon Flannery, a woman with four overprotective older brothers and a troubled past that includes being falsely accused of murdering her husband and giving up her only child, Dani, for adoption. When Dani is kidnapped from her hometown of Falls Creek, Ore., Travis sets out to find Shannon in Santa Lucia, Calif., thinking she may know the girl's whereabouts. The two eventually realize that Dani's disappearance, as well as several unsolved local murders and a series of arsons, are inextricably linked to Shannon's family history including dark secrets her brothers have harbored for years. Naturally, in the midst of all the danger, Travis and Shannon fall in love; though Jackson indulges in only one major obligatory sex scene, she injects nearly every other scene with plenty of dread and drama, keeping seasoned suspense lovers reading. A tight, twisty plot catapulting toward a fiery conclusion will please fans and should earn Jackson new ones.
A very good book, kept in suspense until the end, Lisa Jackson's usually good standard as other books of hers that I've read.
