I started listening to this book on a library copy of the cassettes without realizing that it was abridged. I wanted the whole story so i picked up a copy of the book to finish, and enjoyed it immensely. I always enjoy Judith McNaught's novels both historical and comtemporary. She never disappoints with her character choices in my opinion. I originally skipped over this book when it came out because I didn't think it sounded like her usual work and didn't like the plot summary, but I figured that I wouldn't mind listening to it in my car. I am so glad I took the time to read the rest of the story. I just love a man who pines from afar and then finally gets his girl. He didn't have to push her into anyhting or be a jerk to get her to fall for him as so many authors make their leading men act. She saw his constant but distant devotion to her over the years by his actions that she didn't know about until now when he's walked back into her life and his emotional support while she grieves for an unfaithful husband he never liked. That cemented their relationship and showed her the difference between him and her late husband. No comparison. Michael wins hands down. The romance in the book doesn't really begin until a little more than half way thru but it definitely doesn't disappoint and the story overall is well written.

A good book for escaping as the story moves quickly and sucks you into it. My only problem is that it wasn't longer.

This is a great mystery with a little romance thrown in.

A broadway actress's husband is missing and turns up dead. Who killed him? Did she? Did her stalker? If not them, then who?

#1 New York Times bestselling author Judith McNaught crafts a thrilling tale filled with unrelenting suspense, unforgettable characters, and powerful undercurrents of greed, ambition, and desire.

Leigh Kendall reveled in her stellar Broadway acting career and in her marriage to Logan Manning, scion of an old New York family. When her husband finds the perfect mountain property for their dream house, he decides to surprise Leigh with her first view of the site. Driving upstate on a winter's night, Leigh is run off the road in the midst of a blinding blizzard. When she awakes in the local hospital, seriously injured, the police inform her that her husband has mysteriously disappeared, and Leigh, although obviously distraught, becomes the focus of their suspicions. The more she discovers about her husband and his business affairs, the less she realizes she knew about Logan Manning. Now, Leigh is heading deeper and deeper into unknown territory...where friends and enemies are impossible to distinguish, and where the truth becomes the most terrifying weapon of all.

This is an enjoyable suspense story with mild peril and a bit of romance. It's somewhat predictable in some elements, but I had fun with it, nevertheless.

It was a little too much like Danielle Steel for me. The story was not believable enough. The plot did get interesting toward the middle and end.
