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. Download and start listening now!

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Multiple threats make this novel a thrilling read straight through to the last page. The language is so descriptive it draws you into the novel. Beth’s husband hovering in the shadows and a creepy villain in the wings just waiting to strike ramp up the tension.”

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lbaril | 2/19/2014

    " I'm giving this 2 stars because it intrigued me enough to finish it but I just found this to be mostly silly and unbelievable. Everything bad that can happen to someone has happened to the main character. The poor woman has suffered, so much so that it just got to be ridiculous. Favorite character was Henry :-) Would not recommend to anyone...maybe entertaining enough for a long airplane ride. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Colleen | 2/8/2014

    " This book started good but I think the author was trying to hard to be something she's not. She put swear words in there that just seemed awkward. The romance was too forced and it was too predictable. Very disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/6/2014

    " I enjoyed this book a lot, but did guess some of the future events in it before I read them, so could have been written better. Leigh blends great mystery, romance, and passion very well, so another great reason to enjoy it. Also, fast read! "
