Kendall Deaton moves to a small South Carolina town to become the public defender, and immediately falls in love with the town's golden boy, Matt Burnwood. After a whirlwind courtship and marriage, Kendall's life seems ideal. But when she stumbles on to the truth about her husband and the town she lives in, Kendall goes on the run for her life. Months later she and her baby son are found. U.S. Marshall John McGrath is dispatched to Colorado to return her as a material witness. A car accident leaves John with no memory and Kendall takes advantage of the fact, telling the hospital that he is her husband. She soon plans her immediate escape, knowing that her only hope for survival is to flee.
This story actually starts with the accident, and the past is told through flashbacks. I was immediately sucked into the story, wanting to know what secret the town was harboring and how Kendall was going to elude both the FBI and her in-laws while on the run with a baby and an amnesiac. Good story. My rating: 4 Stars.
Enjoyed this book very much. Good strong characters and strong story line.
A gripping story from the very beginning. From the moment I started it, I couldn't put it down. A definite must-read for mystery addicts. Twists and turns abound heavily in this book. You never know what to expect next.
