First time I have read this author....I think I will read more by her...enjoyed this one. A little romance and lots of thrills.
I have read a lot of Donna Anders' thrillers. When I see a new title by this author, I know the book will be exciting, a scary book to read on a cold, rainy night. I was troubled by the heroine in this book, though. She was responsible for the welfare of two teenaged daughters, yet took very few practical steps to protect them or herself from a very violent stalker targeting the family. Several women had been murdered on the jogging path behind her house and she and one of her daughters were lured to the secluded path and then shot at. Then, when she had very obviously incriminating evidence in a murder investigation, she withheld the information from the police, waiting for the suspect to explain his side of the story to her. Even when his name was printed in the newspaper as a suspect, she continued to withhold evidence. In her other books, Anders keeps the fear and anxiety level up without sacrificing the integrity of her heroine. "Night Stalker" is scary and suspenseful, but I didn't enjoy it as much as her other books.
Julia Farley is a hard-working single mother still recovering from a marriage gone wrong. The last thing Julia expected was a new man in her life, yet she soon finds herself drawn into a complicated affair with Earl Paulsen, a handsome attorney with a charming demeanor. Like Julia, his own family life is in ruins due to a troubled spouse he cannot abandon -- and Julia thinks she may be falling for him.
Suddenly, Julia's family becomes the target of repeated vandalism and physical threats from an unknown predator. Although Julia suspects her ex-husband at first, she slowly realizes that there is something much more sinister involved. Someone is lurking in the shadows who will do anything to possess her....
