Really excellently read book, read by Linda Emond. I believe her voice "MADE" this selection a great one to listen to. Ppl have written in how much they enjoy Luanne Rice. This may not have been a fair representation of her work, for I'd not gotten the idea that her work was more 'frightening', but when writing about a serial killer, then, yes, this would fit in there. My mistake, for I would surmise I'd expected a bit more of a romantic novel. I'll research better next time, and find a book that rates a good 4 1/2 or above, written by Luanne Rice, beloved author to many.

The story, pacing, characters were well done. Best of course to me, was the 'reading' by this Linda Emond. I really appreciated her voice/changes and handling of the dialog.

Luanne did a good job, just not my cup-of-tea type of story/book. My fault. AND I DO read these kinds of books, from time to time (serial, horror, scary, bloody). Others who love that stuff won't agree that it was very much beyond a "cozy", I suppose. LOL.

I think this was one of Luanne Rice's best books. It's definitely different from the others I've read, but in a good way.

I did not like the way this book started out so I did not finish reading it. The book has to grab me from the beginning and I did not like the way this one was going. Everyone is different about their books and this one was just not what I thought it would be.

My current favorite author, reading everything I can find that she's written! This was a great suspense and romance, though the story is somewhat disturbing because of the serial killer element. Love the way this author gets inside the minds of all of her characters and does such a masterful job of describing their thoughts and feelings!

Holy Cow!!! My heart was pounding towards the end of this book! It reminds me of the suspense/tension of that old movie with Audrey Hepburn, "Wait Until Dark". Just amazing
