Zoe Luce is a successful interior designer in the Arizona town of Whispering Springs who has developed an unusual career specialty—helping recently divorced clients redesign their homes, to help them get a fresh start. But Zoe knows that some things can’t be covered up with a new coat of paint, and when she senses that one of her clients may be hiding a dark secret, she enlists private investigator Ethan Truax to find the truth.

Working together, they solve the mystery, barely escaping with their lives. But Ethan’s exquisite detection skills are starting to backfire on Zoe: she never wanted to let him find out about her former life; she never wanted to reveal her powerful, inexplicable gift for sensing the history hidden with a house’s walls; she never wanted him to know that “Zoe Luce” doesn’t really exist. She never wanted to fall in love with him.

Just when Zoe dares to dream of a normal life and a future with the man she loves, her own past starts to shadow her every step—and threatens to take her back into a nightmare. Ethan may be her only hope…

    " First in a two-part series (followed by Truth or Dare), this book is a great re-read . Ethan Truax is a very believable three-times-divorced and financially bankrupt private investigator starting all over again in Whispering Springs. Zoe Luce (formerly Sara Cleland) is a less believable widow and fine arts major who feels emotions in the walls of rooms, particularly rooms where violence has occurred. She has relocated to Whispering Springs after escaping from the asylum in which her in-laws have imprisoned her and has started an interior design business. It is a credit to the skills of Jayne Ann Krentz that she makes a believer out of you before the end of the book. A truly delightful tale in spite of the foray into sixth sense fiction, it is well worth reading over and over again, which I do, and it is very telling that I have trouble putting it down every time. I wish I had a dollar for every hour of sleep I have lost thanks to JAK's books. You would think it would get easier when you know what's going to happen, but unfortunately for my sleep deficit, it doesn't. "

    " I think the decision to create a hero who is something other than fabulously wealthy is always interesting. Refreshing. I'm basically a fan of this JAK and the sequel -- they're fun and I like the characters. Observation: to create the laconic, simple-yet-manly hero, JAK-style, drop the initial pronoun from the sentence. Thus we have "Never thought of that." And "Thought you'd see it that way." Effective. Unfortunately, once you notice it, you will notice it everywhere until it drives you crazy. "

    " At the beginning of this book I would have rated it 3 stars. However, as I read I got attached to the characters (Ethan Truax, a self-employed private eye and Zoe Luce, an interior designer--not decorator, thank you very much!)and found myself eager to solve the mystery. This was my first Jayne Ann Krentz novel and I will definitely read the continuing saga in Truth or Dare. While this book has a few red-hot scenes, it focuses more on the mystery. "

    " I liked this one better upon re-reading it so gave it a 4th star. "
