For eight years, single mother Grace Archer has been living a picture-perfect life raising her daughter on a horse farm in the small town of Tallanville, Alabama. Watching Frankie grow into a talented and confident young girl has made Grace as happy as any mother could hope to be. Happy enough, even, to forget the past. But the past never quite goes away. Which is why a certain charismatic man also moved to Tallanville eight years ago to watch over her.

But when violence threatens to shatter Grace and Frankie’s idyllic home, the waiting is over. The ghosts of the past have returned. And they’re hungry for blood. Now Grace must resume an identity she thought she had cast off forever, and match wits with an opponent as deadly as he is cunning. The prize: an extraordinary secret that only she can unfold. The forfeit: losing the thing more precious to her than life itself.

    " I thought the story line was very interesting but I had trouble connecting with the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karla | 2/11/2014

    " I liked it. It had a good storyline. The way the 8 year old talked and the way the main character could just talk to horses was a bit unlikely but it was an entertaining story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bobbi | 2/10/2014

    " Liked this one too ... easy read - great book to fill in spots where you just need a change. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tam | 2/10/2014

    " You know a book is bad when the audio book keeps you awake merely so you can make scathing, sarcastic comments about the story, the writing, and the narration. On the other hand, I didn't drive off of the road in the middle of nowhere Idaho, so I suppose it did its task. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane Dunham | 2/8/2014

    " Captivating. Keeps you reading to find out what happens "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/12/2014

    " Fast paced, exciting story w/ mystery, love, a thriller too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 12/29/2013

    " Wow, this book was very fast moving and kept your interest right to the end. A must read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeymei | 12/29/2013

    " Really good book...Thought it was gonna get corny for a minute but it stayed strong. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 12/3/2013

    " More suspense than some of her other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 12/2/2013

    " A quick read suspense book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 11/21/2013

    " I prefer less romance and more mystery. A good book, but I have found other authors that I like a lot more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 11/15/2013

    " Like most IJ novels, this one was another quick read. I'm a horse person, so I found the parts about the horses to be believable. However, I found the character of the daughter to be annoying. She was not child-like enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerry | 8/8/2013

    " This book was a slow moving book..it took a lot to set up the story-line, but once it got moving there were some unexpectant moments. It was different to read one of Johansen's books with all new characters. I hope she continues to use these characters again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaylynn Johnsen | 7/1/2013

    " I really enjoyed the relationship between the mother and her daughter. The spy stuff was well done, yet didn't diminish the family dynamic. Characters I cared about and a plot that kept me hopping. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 5/14/2013

    " well, it's not an audio book, but this seems to be the only one I can find. Like most Johansen books, I had a hard time getting started, but then it gets good and I don't want to stop till I know what's happening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fran | 5/9/2013

    " I enjoyed the mother/daughter relationship in this book. A good suspense that held my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn Brown | 2/3/2013

    " Great book so far. Really grabbed me from the start. Only about a quarter of the way through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Jane | 1/6/2013

    " Bridgeport reading while everyone else fished and played poker. "

    " Great light reading. I find myself laughing at some of her musings - because I have thought the same things at times. She is an older version of Nancy Drew - solves crimes. Fun series! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marilyn | 12/6/2010

    " Just finished it last night. I know her books are popular but they are rather formulaic. Strong woman, man done her wrong, in the end, they get together. blah blah blah. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne | 11/16/2010

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Enni | 8/9/2010

    " Hmmm ... I don't care much for horses and the story was a little thin IMO. Not bad but not anything to rave about either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 8/5/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick, good suspense/thriller read with a hint of romance but was not as graphic in detail as some writers. I would recommend this book to most anyone that likes suspense/thrillers. "

    " I truly am a sucker for mystery, action and love. Through it all in and I can't refuse even if it is basicall the same plot EVERY time. When will I learn? But it is a good read. "
