Publisher's Summary

Ten months ago, Elizabeth Baker uncovered a dangerous secret about her politician husband - a secret that nearly got her killed. Now she and her children are running for their lives. When Beth is hired as the caretaker of a remote Pennsylvania estate, she dares to hope she has found a corner of the world where Congressman Richard Baker can’t find them. But when her new boss dies suddenly and his nephew inherits the estate, Beth is faced with outwitting a former homicide detective who is very smart, very suspicious - and very attractive.
Forced into retirement by an injury and grieving the loss of his uncle, Jack O’Malley is unprepared to share his new home with a strange woman and her two kids. He is even less prepared for the instantaneous attraction he feels whenever Beth enters the room. She is beautiful, intelligent, kind…and obviously terrified of someone or something. As Jack’s investigation uncovers the shocking details of Beth’s past, the rural community is shaken by the murder of a local woman. Driven by instinct and desire, Jack is determined to keep Beth and her children safe, even if doing so means putting his heart - and his life - on the line.

Hard to embrace

I cannot relate with the characters in this novel on a personal level and the writing does not draw me into empathise with them either. I persevered for 20 chapters and realised that I don't care about their daily lives, the intrigue is not intriguing and the back story is being dragged out for so long that, I no longer care how anything is resolved.

There appears to be 3 plot lines, but not 1 or them can hold my interest. I'm new to this author, but have read 3 other books of hers - the Scarlett Falls series - which I thoroughly enjoyed. I find it hard to believe that they were penned by the same person. Those other characters were far stronger, approachable and endearing.

Fortunately for me, I was able to listen to this because of my Kindle Unlimited subscription, so I don't feel cheated in any way. I will try other books by this author, but I doubt that I will continue with this series.

Oh so predictable

I was disappointed by this book, having enjoyed others by the same author. It was clear from the start what the underlying plot lines would be. I had the killer from the first time they appeared, and guessed pretty much how it would play out. And there was far too much sexualised narrative - sometimes, 'less really is more'!
