Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Night Whispers, McNaught's first romantic suspense novel (after a host of historicals), hit the charts hard, and this solid follow-up looks to do the same. Legendary stage actress Leigh Kendall is starring in a Broadway play, lives in a fabulous apartment and adores her husband, Logan Manning, a handsome, rich and virile businessman. After an afternoon performance, she's off to meet Logan in their country cabin, where he's promised an evening of lust and love in front of a roaring fire. Her life changes forever when she drives over an embankment in a snowstorm and barely escapes death. After waking up bruised and battered in the hospital, she finds Logan missing, her rival performing her part in the play, a creepy stalker sending expensive flowers and the evil Michael Valente, a business acquaintance of her husband's, being suspiciously attentive. Leigh checks out of the hospital and begins a frantic search for Logan aided by a team of detectives from the NYPD. As the search intensifies, she begins to learn secrets that expose her golden marriage as a fraud and her husband as a serial cheater. A romantic subplot features two of the cops investigating her case, the chiseled Lt. Mitchell McCord and rookie detective Samantha Littleton, who partner up in more ways than one. Leigh proves to be a stalwart if privileged heroine who finds a knight in shining armor in an unexpected corner of her past. The suspense is not terribly suspenseful, and several plot threads go uncollected, but romance is McNaught's bread and butter and she serves it up in abundance.

Leigh Kendall and Logan Manning - the perfect couple who have it all. Logan, an architect, purchases a remote country property, where he plans to build their dream home. Leigh leaves to join Logan for her first visit to their new property, but in a blizzard, is run off the road. Leigh awakens in the hospital only to find out Logan has disappeared, and she has become a prime suspect in the case.
Enter the mysterious Michael Valente, one of McNaught's best tall, dark and dangerous heroes, to lend assistance to Leigh in the search of her husband. The case of secondary characters is superb. Investigating officers Mac McCord and Samantha Littleton add depth and credibility to the police investigation, not to mention the sizzling romance budding between them. Bring back a character or two from previous books, and the mix is perfect.
As the plot unfolds, we learn Logan was not the man his wife thought he was, but then neither is Michael Valente. Suspects abound, and all of them seem to have good reason for wanting to get even with Logan. Throw in some dirty politics with all of these multi-layered characters, and the suspense builds until the final pages. With the romance and suspense so intricately woven, the emotions this author evokes will keep you glued to your chair until the final page.

I've always held the highest regard for Judith McNaught's writing. I think she is one of the very best in talented writers. And she didn't let me down with "Someone To Watch Over Me". I read the book in 1.5 days because I simply couldn't put it down. I think Valente had me completely mesmerized. But I'll have to admit, I was equally pleased with Samatha and Mack and the way that relationship evolved. More than this, the romance built in such a way that you could feel the characters falling in love with each other. And the suspense... well, I guess I read too much because I had it just about figured out before I got to the end. Still, the story was great, the writing was wonderful and as usual, McNaught didn't let me down. I have to respect this author's ability to write a story about politics that runs so true to life. I wonder how she got to be so smart. I have to say that I will highly recommend this book to my friends for future reading. Thanks, Judi. I'm looking forward to the next novel. Keep going.

While attempting to meet with her husband in the Catskills, Broadway Superstar Leigh Kendall(a.k.a. Mrs. Logan Manning), drives into an unexpected snowstorm. After an accident which should have killed her, she pulls herself to the side of the road where she is rescued and taken to a local hospital. In the following days Leigh learns that her husband is missing and eventually is found murdered. She cannot comprehend why anyone would want to [do away with] her husband who is well-liked. Leigh and her husband have been married about thirteen years and she is about to discover that she really didn't know him at all.
The story continues with much emphasis on solving the murder. You will be kept guessing about the identity of the murderer and be treated to not only one but two romances. I personally liked the romance that developed between Detective Samantha (Sam) Littleton and Lieutenant Mitchell McCord. Their characters were very modern and refreshing. For those of you who enjoy reading about very strong, confident guys, then you will enjoy the characters of Lt. McCord and Michael Valente.
Since this is my first JM novel, obviously I cannot compare it to her previous works but I can tell you I found this to be a very enjoyable read.

Over the years Mcnaught has become my favorite author. I have all her books (and in all the editions). I've read some of them over ten times...I became a collector/fan/admirer. No one could have been expecting this book more. When I read it I was extremely disappointed.

I couldn't believe Mcnaught had actually written the whole book!!!

The phrasing was tedious, tiresome, the romance superficial... I had actually trouble reading the part when the couple "got together" for the first time...the way the scene was written dragged on for ages... "he did this, she did that, he did this, she did that, he did this...". I nearly screamed!!! I had to stop and do something else, or I'd actually throw the book away.
I truly hope this book was just a relapse in Mcnaught's carrer. I'll be expecting her next one and, hopefully, one much better.
She continues to be my favorite author, but this book will only be in my collection because it has her name. This book was a true Judith Mcnaught turn off...
If you are going to read one of her books, start with "Whitney, My Love" or "Once and Always": these are ones of the best books written!!!

Judith McNaught is my all-time favorite author. She can weave a tale unlike any other. The emotions she can invoke are unmatched and soon you find yourself so wrapped up in the story that you are one of the characters, too. For any of you reading this, I suggest reading all of McNaught's works because she is absolutely wonderful. I have been anticipating this book for quite sometime now. Unfortunately, I had high expectations for this book and the book didn't quite meet them. From any other author, I would have given this book 5 stars, to be sure. The story seemed a bit predictable, and rushed. It was highly entertaining, but it didn't have that 'spark' that is the trademark of McNaught's work. I enjoyed the secondary story between McCord and Sam much more than the main storyline. Their story seemed to be written with more passion and conviction. I think that the book industry is too saturated with romantic thrillers. I really think that they take away from the development of the characters because they focus so much on 'solving the crime.' I believe that Judith McNaught is too terrific of an author to slip herself into that category.
