Olivia's parents had been one of Hollywood's glittering golden couples...until the night the monster came. The monster who destroyed their beautiful home and took her mother away from her forever. The monster with the face of her father....

Now a young woman, Olivia finds her memory of that night has faded. Her mother's grieving family spared no effort to keep Olivia safe from the publicity, taking her to grow up in the beautiful natural splendor of the Pacific Northwest. But, despite the terror and the years that have passed, a part of her still yearns to recall those horrifying events, to know the truth about her childhood.

With the help of a young writer named Noah Brady, she could have the chance. The son of the police officer who found four-year-old Olivia cowering in her bedroom closet so many years ago, Noah wants to reconstruct that infamous night - and tell the story that has become part of Hollywood legend.

With Noah, Olivia has a chance to confront her tragic past - and the longings of her own lonely heart. But before she can confront her past, she must safeguard her future. For in this forest haven, this remote corner of the country, the monster walks again. Download and start listening now!

    " Adding books to my list. I will have to go back and reread to write an accurate review. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandy | 2/16/2014

    " This book was good but not as god as the Reef. I liked the premise and the story line. I knew right away though that it wasn't Sam that killed Julie. I figured it was probably her twin Jamie. I wish we as the reader go to see more of what kind of person Julie was before she was killed but I think the author wanted us to come into it knowing as little as Olivia did. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 2/4/2014

    " This is the first Nora Roberts book I have read. It reads just like a Channel 5 afternoon movie so if that's your thing you will probably think its ok..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 1/26/2014

    " I don't remember the last time I cried so much in a book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tera | 1/24/2014

    " Very good book had me not sure of who was the bad guy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 1/21/2014

    " I loved this book! I am so proud that I for once knew who the killer was. Towards the end I wasn't so sure, but yes! I got it. I enjoyed the "cat and mouse" game with the story line of who the killer was, and with the romantic part. I like that she didn't have Olivia and Noah jumping in the sack the second time they met. I loved how their relationship evolved. I have always liked how Nora Roberts in all her books that I have read so far, describes everything so vividly. I felt like I was running through that forest, or was weeding the flowers, or seeing that magnificant view for the first time. Being a four year old and seeing her murdered mother. She brings out every part of my senses, my emotions and imagination. This was a great romance/mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/20/2014

    " It was really good until about the last 20 pages then it wasn't horrible, but I was hoping for a more creative reasoning for why the actual murderer of Julie McBride killed her "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy L. | 1/16/2014

    " Loved this one. I could not put it down. Great plot twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mishma Nixon | 1/10/2014

    " A wonderful tale of love,affection,murder,mystery and tragedy.Just like every Nora Roberts' book it gripped me with it's romance and suspense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie Peut | 12/27/2013

    " Tis is my favourite Nora Roberts book as well as the first! Didnt guess the ending and enjoyed every minute of it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Els2935 | 12/24/2013

    " This is one of the best Nora Roberts I've read in a while. Really enjoyed the plot and the characters really made you care about them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen51780 Galatis | 12/11/2013

    " This has one surprising ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 11/28/2013

    " Good read! I have read a lot of Robert's novels and this one took me by surprise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 11/25/2013

    " A West Coast setting is the difference in this one. A good read with a good couple and a decent murder mystery - reminiscient of Mary Higgins Clark with a little more romance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cesilia Buenrostro | 11/20/2013

    " This book really got to me. It pulled me in then I was hooked by every page. I love books that make you think you know whats going to happen but then it turns, flips and surprises you. I love River's End. I will reread it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 11/15/2013

    " The suspense immediately grabs you and the romance absorbs into you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lilgecko | 10/6/2013

    " Don't get prejudge by the author, though it can be a little steamy, her stories are well contrived and her characters are engaging. Not exactly Linux, but you know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noemia | 7/30/2013

    " Another very interesting reading from NR. A story that keeps the reader's attention from beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 5/22/2013

    " I surprised myself by liking this book. Normally I do not enjoy plots that last over a few decades, but this book had a good movement and interesting characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail (myJunegirls) | 2/27/2013

    " This could have been a much better book had it not been painfully obvious in the first chapter who the real killer was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amelia | 2/3/2013

    " This was a very average book. Too much "romance" for me. The mystery part was good, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marleen | 1/29/2013

    " My very first Nora Roberts book. I was hooked! Lovely story & delightful read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eva | 12/31/2012

    " Loved Noah, loved Liv. I was surprised by the ending, but in retrospect it made so much sense and I feel like I should have seen it coming. But all in all, I really enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicki Caldow | 9/21/2012

    " I had actually forgotten about this book till Jenn reminded me, and oh how I loved it! I think I might have to dig it out and re-read it now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy T | 7/2/2012

    " This was a another good Nora Roberts suspense/romance novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 5/13/2012

    " Typically good Nora Roberts. Not my favorite however as it took me awhile to decide if I liked the 2 main characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridgette Garcia | 9/6/2011

    " By far... One of my favorite books by Nora Roberts! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela(AllHoney) | 3/30/2011

    " A little long winded for my personal taste but it was a decent read. I guessed the mystery pretty early and wasn't surprised but I had hoped I would be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindi | 3/2/2011

    " Great book. Great story. I loved the twist at the end, though I had that particular part of the story (the who and the why) figured out early on. I just was not sure how it would play out. Definitely one of my favorites of Nora Roberts' stand-alone books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 3/1/2011

    " Very good book, bit of a twist at the end, another good Nora Roberts read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisha | 2/8/2011

    " Probably my favorite full length novel from her. I love how the two main characters kept meeting at different points of their life. They were both so endearing. I loved the Hollywood past Olivia's parents were from. I was not expecting the ending. Awesome story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 2/2/2011

    " I kept thinking the story line was familiar and yes, I had read it before (some time ago). It was okay; not any better the second time :-) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 1/27/2011

    " I finished this book about a month ago and couldn't tell you one thing that happened. I honestly can't even remember who the main characters are from this one. I think this means that I've read way too many of her books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 1/26/2011

    " Typically good Nora Roberts. Not my favorite however as it took me awhile to decide if I liked the 2 main characters. "

    " I didn't like this book. NR has done far better than this. "
