Publisher Description

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.

Too Easy!

The start was great. The events happened quickly and I thought maybe the rest will be the same. I thought too soon. After the captivating events the rest of the book is a drag with very very few interesting moments. My patience was getting the best of me. But i hung around hoping for a grand climax. The climax was quick and lets just say too easy. The "Heroine" of this movie has too easy a time at the end.
They shouldn't market this book as a thriller. I was least thrilled after reading this book.

Mixed review

True to the NR formula and an enjoyable if somewhat simplistic read. NR clearly ripped off Reich's character Dr. Brennan. The"voice" of the two characters is so similar I found it distracting and left me a little disappointed in NR. Still, it was a few hours of mindless entertainment, but not sure if it was worth the $12.
