Book Description

April 17 2012

Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever.

Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems. Her own security is supplemented by a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing.

Unfortunately, that seems to be the quickest way to get attention in a tiny southern town.

The mystery of Abigail Lowery intrigues local police chief Brooks Gleason, on both a personal and a professional level. Her sharp, logical mind, her secretive nature, her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something, even if he doesn’t know what—and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

Accustomed to two-bit troublemakers, Gleason is about to walk into the sights of very powerful and dangerous men. And Abigail Lowery, who has built a life based on security and self-control, is at risk of losing both.

Although I was expecting the story to unfold with some unexpected twist, the twist did not come where they were expected. The author keeps me coming back for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The witness May 22 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Since this is a Nora Roberts book I can only once again state that she is the best writer I have read. The storyline is very well written and held my interest until the end. Her characters are very real and sometimes surprise the reader by how they react to different things. A very, very good book to read. I highly recommend this book.

By Rhoda
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A compelling read. Nora Roberts at her best. You really begin to feel you know the characters and what they are going through. It may be a love story, but that always takes a back seat to the action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Page turner for the underdog heroine Jan. 25 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Could not put the book down.

Elizabeth at age sixteen goes through more trauma than a teenager should getting mixed up in organized crime. And, this Russian gang reaches out nearly ending her life for good.

Years later she moves into a small town.

There's something about Elizabeth now known as Abigail. Something that draws the local police chief in wanting to know more. The town is curious about the recluse eccentric stranger and Brooks the police chief feels a connection.

When trouble is on the horizon again Elizabeth now has a community ready to help her out.

Fast paced, full of action and hot, hot chemistry this book can't be put down.
