Psychotherapist Kate Huntington returns to the work she loves only to face a series of disturbing events: anonymous and vaguely threatening notes, a malpractice suit for allegedly planting false memories in a client’s head, and when a party involved in the lawsuit turns up dead, Kate becomes a murder suspect. There is one bright note; she’s falling in love. Now if she could just get the ghost of her dead husband out of her head.
Her friend, Rob Franklin, has his misgivings about her too-handsome-to-be-trusted suitor. But when the note-sender ups the ante, threatening to “destroy” Kate’s family, the two men must work together to support the woman they both love and help her stop a killer... before that killer comes after Kate’s baby girl.
(All books in this series are designed to be read and enjoyed as stand-alones as well.)
I have mixed feelings about this story. On one hand, the action parts were good and kept me turning pages. On the other hand, I felt there was perhaps too much of the story devoted to Kate and Skip and their personal/emotional issues. Maybe this is just a gender thing?
Men like action, more than romance, in a murder mystery?
Overall though, the book was well written. I enjoyed it. The ending, as in previous books in this series, came out of left field! I wasn't ready for that. Ms. Lamb continues to present good stories with these quite unusual endings.
Now that I am very familiar with the primary characters, I am looking forward to the next book in this really good series. RET. LT.
