This book was an interesting but difficult read. Although Nora Roberts is an amazing writer, this book seemed to get away from her a little. The story is focused on Fiona Bristow, a woman who owns a dog training school and operates a Search and Rescue team. Fiona has returned home to an island off Seattle's coast in order to heal from an attack from a serial killer. Eight years earlier Fiona was the sole survivor of a deadly rampage from a serial killer that took the life of her cop fiance Greg. Now, Fiona has settled into a comfortable life where she is surrounded by family, friends and her beloved three dogs. Recently, Fiona has found romance in the form of artist Simon, a handsome, blunt man who asks her to train his feisty dog. When a copycat serial killer starts sending Fiona deadly messages and begins a new killing spree, Fiona knows it's only a matter of time until the killer tries to take her out. Although this book was interesting, I didn't particularly feel that the characters were ones I could relate to. The romance was so-so, filled with a few hot love scenes. I honestly think a large portion of this book should have been edited out. Perhaps editors don't edit a big writer like Nora Roberts but a huge portion of this book was extraneous and unnecessary. Overall, this book was good but far from her usual greatness.
