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.

Although I enjoyed the story and the romance a great deal, I have difficulty suspending disbelief for the final chapters. Woman discovers her husband is guilty of heinous crimes and goes on the run. A marshall is dispatched to take her into protective custody.

Annotation
The 16-time New York Times bestselling superstar presents her new blockbuster--a suspenseful tale of deception, passion, and murder. A brave young woman risks her own life and that of her unborn child to turn state's witness against her white supremacist ex-husband and father-in-law.

From the Publisher
After Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked car, a mixture of courage and terror gets her to the top of a ravine, where she flags down help. But she doesn't dare give the hospital her real name or the true identity of the car's injured driver. She tells them only that he is her husband. And as quickly as she can, she starts to plan their escape. Kendall's nightmare began when she came to Prosper, South Carolina, to be the best public defender the country ever had. She quickly fell in love with Prosper's most eligible bachelor, and after a whirlwind courtship had a fairy-tale perfect wedding. Her father-in-law made her feel like part of the family, the kind of close, loving family she had always dreamed could be hers. When she became pregnant, Kendall's happiness seemed complete. She never suspected that coming to Prosper had plunged her into the midst of a chilling conspiracy of bigotry and hate or that she had become a player in an abhorrent deception. Soon Kendall starts losing cases she should have won. She feels surrounded by whispers and secrets, fear, and frightened eyes. Finally Kendall becomes a witness to a horrifying crime. With shocking clarity she realizes that she has misjudged the people around her. Worst of all, she has confused the happiness she wanted so badly with the nightmare she is now forced to endure - a precarious existence that will keep her on the run until justice prevails in Prosper...and until her child is safe.
BookList
Kendall Deaton wants to be the best public defender the town of Prosper, South Carolina, has ever seen. She figures her dream is in the bag; she is married to the handsome newspaper editor, her father-in-law is a well-respected and popular man in the community, and the downtrodden of Prosper need a devoted advocate. What Kendall doesn't expect, though, is a town so entrenched in bigotry and "perfection" that she soon becomes the enemy, even to her new family. The book opens as Kendall pulls herself from the wreckage of a serious car accident. In the hospital, Kendall is careful not to disclose the true past of the seriously injured male driver; she tells the hospital personnel that he's her husband, and even though he's suffering from amnesia, he knows it is not true. Brown unfolds the story by alternating between the present and the past, keeping the reader guessing what's what all along. Though not an elegant writer, this prolific author writes a true page-turner that is recommended for fans of graphic crime fiction.

TERRIFIED MOTHER RUNNING TO SAVE HERSELF AND HER BABY...
reviewed Witness, The on + 3389 more book reviews
As a fan of Ms. Brown's romance novels I hesitated to read her suspense novels. My aunt recommended this book to me and I'm ever thankful she did. This is definitely one of the best books I've read this year.
Kendall Deaton is a Public Defender in the small town of Prosper, South Carolina. She marries handsome hunk Matt Burnwood expecting to live a fairy tale life. But her life then changes. She is witness to a hideous event and is running for her life. To reveal more details would ruin the story.

This book is just awesome. It has a spine-tingling plot with twists that will literally keep you on the edge of your seat. The plot will keep you reading for hours on end. It's almost as if the pages turn themselves and you have been sucked into the story. The characters are wonderfully written. Kendall is someone you have to admire and you really don't know her whole story until the very last page. I can't say it enough, this book hooks you and won't let go! I agree with the other reviewer that I would like to see a book about Ricki Sue and Jim Pepperdyne. One could definitely see the sparks flying off the pages with those two.

I haven't read this book yet - it is a duplicate of one I already have, but I have enjoyed several other Sandra Brown books. The back blurb states:

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.
