I think this was one of Sandra Brown's best! The twists and turns keep you reading longer than you should. And the heroine has a backbone we would all desire.

Loved it! It was complicated enough to keep me interested and guessing. It's terrifying and sweet at the same time. I would definately recommend it. After reading it all in one day (that's how much I enjoyed it), I gave my copy to a friend.

Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked car, and a mixture of courage & fear gets her to the top of a ravine, where she flags down help. However she doesn't dare reveal her true identity to the authorities. This book once again is a testament to Brown's gift as a talented storyteller. Very spell binding! Good book.

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.

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.
