A well-written thriller centering around a serial killer, the police chief's recently divorced wife, and a blizzard. Well-written characters. I enjoyed the story - some parts I guessed quickly but others eluded me until the end.
I haven't read many of Sandra Brown's books but I will check out her other books now. This book was very good, kept my interest from the start with a few surprises. I would highly recommend it for those who like a little suspense along with a good love story.
This was my first Sandra Brown book and first audio book. It is well written, lots of twists and turns, a few surprises; it kept me "on the edge of my seat". I thoroughly enjoyed it and the "listening" experience. I rate it a "9".
